Now we have the main card for UFC 140 announced, what main card are you most looking forward to, 139 or 140?

 

Both cards are stacked with talent and important fights, at 139 you have the Shogun v Hendo fight, the winner of that fight could well be fighting for the LHW or MW title next. Wandy v Cung Le is significant because this could be Wandy's last UFC fight if he loses, for Cung Le an impressive debut could see him thrust into a no1 contenders fight in 2012. Faber v Bowles is confirmed as a no1 contender fight for the BW title. Kampmann v Story is a must win for both guys if they want any hope of mounting a title challenge next year, the loser is really going to lose any significant standing in the WW division.

 

With 140, the main event of Machida v JBJ needs no introduction, epic fight! Mir v Big Nog might not be everyones cup of tea, but this is basically the 5th vrs the rank 6th guy in the HW division, so it has big significance. Tito v Lil Nog is all about whether Tito can get another win to prolong his UFC career into 2012. Not sure he would get cut for losing this one, but he would defo be on the edge. Lil Nog has not really done anything to impress UFC fans to date i think it would be fair to say? Hominick v Jung should be an absolute war and with both guys ranked in the top 6 of the FW division, it has significance. Rory Mac v Ebersole is all about Rory's rise up the WW ranks. If he wins this fight he will surely be facing top 10 WW competition in 2012 and be a title contender by 2013
