Default UFC 132 great - but no Silva, St Pierre or Jones.

UFC 132 looks a great card. But where are Anderson Silva, Georges St Pierre and Jon Jones?

All the match-ups look good and there's plenty of depth. But why are the big 3 missing?

Fillers !!??

Cruz and Faber in some people's eyes are P4P standouts fighting for a world title , Wanderlei Leben = all out war , Condit Kim is an excellent fight pitting two of the worlds top WW's .

Then you have two awesome LW bouts in Guillard Roller , dos Anjos Sotiropolous

Its a strong card , which for once is substance over " MMA's supposid bigger names "

Jones is recovering from injury

And Silva is pencilled in to fight Okami in Brazil !!

There's also Miller/Simpson, Wiman/Siver and even Bowles/Mizugaki should be good. This card is looking pretty ****ing good right now.

Kids these days
Any card with Wanderlei on it you know you are getting your moneys worth, and love him or hate him when has Leben been in a boring fight? This fight is worth the subscription fee alone, and the rest of the card is pretty great too

WTF are you talking about? Wanderlei vs Leben is reason enough to buy this ppv! This card is spectacular and quite frankly it doesn't need those three to make it special. Plus the prelims will air on spike tv and facebook and i'm pumped to see Mayhem vs Aaron Simpson.

MAIN CARD (PPV)
Champ Dominick Cruz vs. Urijah Faber
UFC Bantamweight Championship
Wanderlei Silva vs. Chris Leben
Tito Ortiz vs. Ryan Bader
Carlos Condit vs. Dong Hyun Kim
Denis Siver vs. Matt Wiman

PRELIMINARY CARD
Melvin Guillard vs. Shane Roller
George Sotiropoulos vs. Rafael dos Anjos
Brian Bowles vs. Takeya Mizugaki
Jason “Mayhem” Miller vs. Aaron Simpson
Erik Koch vs. Cub Swanson
Andre Winner vs. Anthony Njokuani

Any MMA fan who thinks this card sucks isn't an MMA fan!

Even the Prelims are deep! Stick a Diaz fight on top and that would be average SF card

hahaha chillout guys im just saying that in the future good fights in the middle of the year for UFC is going to be less and less entertaining because of the cautionary approach that fighters are taking now days because UFC owns nearly everything.

Having no GSP on an event is no reason to moan
