Disappointing, but expect. I wonder who Cain fights now, or if he's pulled from the card.

Cain's manager said that he'll remain on the card with an opponent to be named later.

I would just pull Werdum from the Brazil card.

That'd make sense but if they actually are pulling Silva-Sonnen from the card would that be doing too much damage to that card?

I'm hoping Overeem is cleared to fight, anyway, and they put him in against Cain. I think that the UFC doesn't want Overeem winning a title right now, regardless of his explanation or if he gets cleared. They could literally figure out that the test was screwed up and he was actually at completely normal levels and the word would still spread that a fighter who was proven to be on the strongest steroids in history was allowed to become champion.

I'm not saying his levels are normal...I'm just saying that it's too late to change the perception, regardless.

Probably, but Belfort vs. Wandy would probably sell the event out itself.

That's what I was thinking. I bet the Brazilian fans are really disappointed about that right now and I don't think pulling more high profile Brazilians would help. Either way the Brazilian's will watch the fights...but it would suck to have all these Brazilian stars taken off the card, including one of the biggest rematches in MMA history.

Someone made the suggestion on twitter of having Bigfoot fight Cain, then pulling in someone like Mitrione to fight Big Country. I wouldn't be too disappointed in that, but Wedrum vs. Cain just sounds like an amazing match up to me.

I was very much looking forward to Cain/Mir, not so much JDS/Mir.

But, with the switch up, I'd prefer seeing Cain take on Werdum than Bigfoot. I think Cain/Bigfoot would be only slightly less one-sided than Cormier/Bigfoot, with Silva against suffering a huge speed disadvantage.

Just watched last night's Bellator, that was an awesome show. Close fights, comebacks, and awesome knockouts. Hopefully the UFC can get Alvarez, their is really nothing left for him to do in Bellator. I cannot wait for the fights tonight, underrated card in my opinion.

Yeah, I'll be very surprised if Alvarez stays in Bellator, especially with Bjorn Rebney saying he's going to have to go through another tourney before getting a re-match with Chandler. I wouldn't say that was Eddie's career defining fight, but it definitely was his big-money fight. I heard talks that whoever won, whether it be Aoki or Alvarez, last night would pretty much end up with a UFC contract shortly after, and Alvarez it is.

Also looking forward to tonight's card. I have a lot of finishes on my tapology picks, so hopefully it ends up being reflective.

Aoki has always been overrated. His fight against Melendez was laughable at best.

This card is going to be filthy. A few really big names, obviously, but a ton of lesser known killers. I'm excited for this whole card.

Not gonna lie, the entire undercard looks like it is going to blow the main card away (save for the main event). I can't wait!
