April 2nd Ultimate Fight Night looks good

I dunno if it’s just lowered expectations for Ultimate Fight Nights, but the UFC continues to excite me with the matchups they stuff on the free Spike shows:

Lightweights Spencer Fisher (20-4) and Marcus Aurelio (15-5) will fight on the UFC Fight Night card set for April 2, according to

The SpikeTV special is set to return to Colorado for the first time since 1995, according to the report and a recent Web site update from Stephan Bonnar right here.

Of course, the “American Psycho” is penciled in to take on Matt Hamill that same night in a light heavyweight tilt. In addition, 155-pounders Kenny Florian and Joe Lauzon are expected to headline the show.

Fisher got outwrestled like a bitch by Frankie Edgar the last time he fought, so it’ll be really interesting to see how he holds up against a top tier jiu-jitsu guy. As for Aurelio, he’s still trying to make people forget about his stinker of a loss to Clay Guida where he looked absolutely lost. He finished his last fight against Luke Caudillo quick n easy, so this will be an interesting one. Will Fisher bounce back after that brutal loss? Will Aurelio wash out like so many of his Pride compatriots? Good matches are all about answering questions, and this one will answer tons for these two guys.

Add the always improving Stephan Bonnar vs Matt “the Swinging Hammer” Hamill and K-Flo vs J-Lau for the Gayest Nickname Championship, and you got yourself a hell of a card!

    Where the UFC was bornded. Fantastic!

  • Method

    Sick, although Ken flo deserves a PPV by now at the least… if he wins, he should get another shot at the title imo.

  • dignan

    Bonnar will really show whether Hamill is a talented MMA guy….which will than show how good/shitty the English prick is.

    I never liked Hamill…until I saw he was a schwinger.

  • Xavier

    Damn, that’s a great card. Florian vs. Lauzon should be for a title shot.

  • Jeremy (not that Jeremy)

    Florian is a good fighter, UFC is just trying to make him a name brand before they take him to the top. UFNs are a great way to do it.

  • Lifer

    aurelio’s win over gomi made me a fan. i’d be happy to see him succeed. if only he spoke english so the UFC would push him more!

  • Lifer

    Xavier – i cant see either, especially lauzon, beating bj penn after he takes the lightweight, middleweight, and heavyweight titles.

  • Dru Down

    Tough fight for Hamill. Bonnar is much bigger than the English Prick and actually possesses a ground game.

    Nice to see Florian vs. Lauzon. Normally, fighters I like end up losing to fighters I hate- but in this case I dislike both participants, so no matter what someone I hate goes home sad. Everybody wins!

  • Tertio

    Bonnar is gonna get man handled by the swinger

  • pauli

    how the hell can you dislike joe lauzon?

  • Zheroen

    I would much rather pay for this card than UFC 80.

  • Jeremy (not that Jeremy)

    Well, you and the other 1.5 million people who will watch it on Spike are paying for it by allowing advertisements to play between rounds.

  • Xavier

    I could see either beating Penn if they can get to championship rounds. It’s not like Penn is unstoppable cardio-wise. Florian has shown that he can absorb punishment and fight through the fifth round. I could see Florian being very competitive with Penn.

  • fightlinker

    And what a brutal price it is. Nothing but taco bell commercials and shit. Blearg

  • Xavier

    Those taco bell commercials are eighteen thousand times better than the fucking Rambo, Xyience and TAGG commercials.

  • Tertio

    Maybe they can show us the rambo DVD commercial every 5 minutes.

  • jaydog

    Nice warm-up for Kenflo. Poor Joe Lauzon will have to take his lumps.

    Not sure what Matt Hamil did to deserve such a tough fight. He’s owed big-time. They should have given him his rematch with Bisping or a gimmie like Sinosic or Sakara.

  • Xavier

    Instead of training for MMA, Hammil should have trained on developing an English accent. Then he would have gotten someone like Sinosic.

  • Amy Robinson

    lol, looks better than UFC 78!

    being in Colorado maybe they’ll be able to match up Marquardt as a main event with Lutter, since they both lost their opponents.

  • Swedish guy

    I’m a bit jealous of y’all that get to see the commercials… the .PPV-aAF never contain them :-(

  • Swedish guy

    eehrm, what I meant was DSRIP.XViD-aAf of course… man I need to pick up that damn lunch now, I’m more or less hallucinating.

  • bmiller

    I am going to this one for sure. Denver is really close to me. I am pumped and cant wait!!!! About time we get some UFC out here.

  • JoeRoganIsAnAss

    Isn’t Nate Diaz matched up with Alvin Robinson. That should be a good one too.

  • JoeRoganIsAnAss

    oops. Jan 23rd
