I gotta say, UFC promo's have been crap until those 2! Great promos and it's shaping up to be a fantastic PPV!

Rappy, Check out the newest Vlog.

It takes about 1.5 minutes for an entire crowd of people to show up to get free tickets, after he tweets about it. Thats a crazy large crowd that shows up too.

that's insane, this is clearly going to be the biggest PPV of year maybe ever!

Live gate, sure. PPV results.... hummm. Don't know. Even Bones vs Shogun did just OK on the PPV front. Lesnar vs JDS will probably sell more PPV even if the card isn't as stacked (from a MMA-as-sport perspective).

OMG CAN'T WAIT!

Got the event ordered, sitting at work now just waiting to go home. Have a bunch of people coming over to see GSP defend his title!

going to be crazy!

lets go shields! :D

Not going to happen. Frankly I'm more excited about the Aldo fight. He is a beast and deserves more fans. Hominick is also quite good.

I gots to cheer the under dog on...I always do in the hope that not everything goes by the script :p

Are you going to cheer for Okami as well? After seeing what GSP did to Koscheck's eye and since Jake Shields doesn't have good striking skills (which is odd considering he trains with Nick Diaz) and is at his best at MW, I just don't see it going his way.

I was cheering for Belfort but yeah we all know how that went....I live in the belief that UFC is sometimes unpredictable and that Shields could somehow find a way but yeah its 85% sure GSP will pwn him.

I predict Jake Shields to win via rear naked choke in Round 2. Well, I hope for this...haha. I think it is possible. Down with GSP!

Possible? Sure. But if Jake ends up winning and if it is by submission, I doubt it will be with something as dominating as a RNC. An sneaky armbar or triangle would be more likely.

I just don't see Jake Shields winning. GSP's training looks to be a hell of a lot more intense, plus, his striking has improved a lot since he fought Koscheck.
