My first reaction was "what the fuck, didn't we just see this"? If I was Henderson, I would be a little pissed. And are we ever going to see Marquart vs. Henderson? I hope he got the verbal that a win over Franklin (again) will get him a title shot. I would then take Franklin down and keep him there for 3 rounds. He probably won't do this and is the reason why I am actually ok with seeing this fight again after thinking about it.
Both these guys are studs. It was a good match-up two fights ago and it is still a good match-up. What makes it more acceptable to me are the other match-ups on the card. I can't wait to see almost all of these.
Henderson vs. Franklin - Franklin is going to get after it. Henderson knows this and I am curious to see what his game plan is. Does he go for the finish or play it safe? - can't wait.
Cro Cop vs. Dos Santos - Not going three rounds - can't wait
Kampman vs. Swick - Not going three rounds - can't wait
Koschek vs. Trigg - only mildly interested in this one for some reason
Sherk vs. Tibau - should be a fast pace grinder - only mildly interested
Griffin vs. Franca - should be a fast pace grinder - interested
Escudero vs. Miller - Lower level guys but seem to put on a good show. I like this one. I hope we get to see it.
Drwal vs. McFedries - Not going three rounds - probably won't see this one.
dos Anjos vs. Wiman - should be a fast pace grinder - probably won't see this one.
No matter which bouts actually air, this is a good card. I think we will have quite a few finishes and get to see more fights than normal. No 5 rounder either.
