In a way I think they HAD to move it from Brazil. I mean a nice guy and well liked guy in Chad Mendes got death threats when he fought Aldo in Brazil. The security required for Sonnen would of been crazy and imagine if he laid on Silva and won there would be so much shit getting thrown inti the ring from the crowd in the last round.

Its still Ortiz's last match and I loved him back in his prime his G&P was devastating and Lee vs Franklin is also very interesting. Would be more then happy for an Interim title to be on the line in the Bantamweight and have Faber face Bowles again or maybe even TJ Dillashaw whoes very under rated and got screwed in the TUF finale.
All Hail Mitchell Johnson and David Warner.

Faber is rumoured to be fighting Renan Barao (one of my fave fighters) for an interim belt until Cruz gets back next year. It's a better fight, IMO, as we've already seen Cruz/Faber twice, as recently as last June.

Bisping's fight has been moved to UFC 149, which sucks.

Sonnen has done everything he could to piss off silva. Now anderson is pissed off. Is that a good thing or a bad thing? Who knows. We'll see at the fight.
