    Thomas, whats wrong with 3 free hours of mma? Those are some pretty decent fights man. Fisher-Stephens will be exciting as hell, you are going to see a huge McFedries ko, tanner is always good to watch, and Horn-Lister should be decent.

    It’s too bad the finales aren’t using the losing fighters from that season’s TUF like in the past, but I can’t complain. Those are all very even matchups except the Sanchez fight.

    To #5: Ahem. And what is this? “along with several fighters that were eliminated from the TUF 7 cast.”

    Rumours says, that there will be like 3 fights with fighters from TUF7 – but they cannot reveal it yet, while the season is still being televised – it would reveal who is a finalist of that season.
