Hell yeah!! I live right by there!! It's going to be hard to get a ticket, though.

Join the UFC Fight Club for $75.00 and you will get first crack at tickets (that's my plan). The UFC fan expo is also being held that weekend at Direct Energy Centre.

The good news is that GSP is rumored to be fighting.
The bad news is that the most likely opponent is Jake Shields.
Hopefully, they want to sell 60,000 tickets fast and schedule a superfight against A. Silva (not likely, but one can hope).

Either way, it should be a great weekend.

I read that if GSP and silva fought, Silva would refuse to drop weight for a catch-weight. GASP has also stated that he would want to take time to put on the the extra weight the right way so he's as healthy as possible when entering the new weight class. I think both of those factors will make the fight bot more interesting, and harder to put together.

Yeah, given what George said about gaining weight properly, The chances are very slim that that fight could be put together by April.

Besides, GSP still has to get by Kos and Silva has to beat Vitor. If the agressive and in-shape Vitor shows up, this superfight may never happen.

It really doesn't matter who is fighting, actually. Being at the biggest MMA event in North American history will be an awesome experience - I can't wait!

I thought GSP looked good last night!
How about the Danzig knock out?
It was the same as Daleys in Strikeforce: a little check hook and a face plant!
When they fall on their face, the ain't getting up!!

GSP did look good. Is there a better fighter at implementing and sticking to game-plans? Danzig looked great too. I love that kind of knockout.

What did you think of the McCorkle fight? The guy claims he choked, and literally couldn't breathe. Other than the take-down and submission attempt he was dominated. Some people are wondering if Struve was in panic mode too. It looked like a perfect defense and a hell of a mount to me. To me that says pure composure.

As for Daley.. Sad that he screwed himself in the UFC. He's a great fighter.

I'm not sure a fight with Shields will be the most exciting, but I'll take it. GSPs walk out may possibly be the loudest ever!

Couture and Machida are on the card as well. I'm not sure how I feel about this fight - I don't exactly see fireworks here, but I am a big fan of Machida and seeing what could be Coutures last fight live will be nice.
