    Hopefully the prelims will be available elsewhere for after the fact viewing.

    Mistake!

    Yeah I'm a diehard fan, but if I wasn't, this wouldn't make me want to drop $50 for a PPV fight...

    They did show the prelims in here (on Fox). The Guida vs Henderson fight was pretty epic.

    Not sure in this particular case, but that's one thing I admire about UFC, that they do a great job of making fights available on Spike TV after the fact (usually within a few months at most).

    Hell, I'm some what of a boxing fan (more so before UFC's rise), and I've still NEVER seen the first Ali vs Frasier fight at madison Square Garden :scratch:.
    Anyone know why they never show Ali/Frasier #1 ?
    I assume it's a contract thing, but?

    Well, Dustin Pauge is out. :( Oh well. At least there's a chance for a member of Team Mayhem to take it all.

    That being said...I'm stoked for December 3rd. :D

    I'm pretty pissed. Apparently we don't have Fox in Colorado?! I was watching UFC Unleashed on Spike last weekend waiting for the free event on Fox, only to find out that I couldn't even find Fox.

    Hendo wins another disadvantaged fight.
    I'd like to see him fight for a title, but I really can't see him doing much with Jones. I mean he does have a puncher's chance of coarse, but that's about it VS Jones.

    I'd really like to see him fight Rampage, and destroy Rampage.

    Rua could be a good match for Evans, although I think Rua's toughness would prevail easily.

    What`s everyone's thoughts on jones vs machida ? I think this will be the toughest challenge yet for jones. I think out of anyone lyoto has the best chance at beating jon jones.

    I agree on that. I think it's close to 50/50. I think Lyoto will try to take Jones down and keep him there but I think Jones will buck him off as he did Rua.

    I don't know guys, I'd like to see Machida do something here, but I just don't see him getting to Jones...

    machida stands a good chance to win but jones is a monster all around. I think we will see machida only catch him with a couple of clean shots coming in so jones can try to engage in clinch work to try and bring him down to ground and pound. So i think as long as jones can keep this fight in close and on the ground he has got it, but him having to come into that range is where machida will test him. 60/40 jones 2nd round tko

    :lol:Are you kidding? Machida got beat easily by shogun in their first match (although the blind judges didn't see it that way :lol:), and thuroughly dominated by shogun the second time.
    I know he's not fighting shogun, he's fighting the guy who's made them all (shogun, jackson, bader, hammil, ect., ect.....) look like little boys.

    Honestly can't see any of the 205 or less guys (including henderson or anderson silva) giving him a decent fight.

    ALSO, HEADS UP EVERYONE,
    tonights the coaches challenge fight FREE ON SPIKE.
    Just as someone already has posted, my heart says Miller, but my head says Bisping. Hope it's a good fight though (meaning a Miller victory:lol:.

    Machida's a better fighter than when he fought shogun.I think machida's style and elusiveness will be a big factor in this fight. Also he has really good takedown defense. I'm not saying machida is for sure gonna come out and beat jones, but i think he'll push jones and give him a good battle. Also i hope mayhem wins tonight too, i fucking hate bisping :lol:
