UFC 159 is looking pretty sweet

Remember stacked cards? Pepperidge Farms remembers. And if the injury bug continues to stay away, they may not remain just a vague memory from 2008. Check out the lineup for UFC 159 as it stands:

  • Jon Jones vs. Chael Sonnen
  • Alan Belcher vs. Michael Bisping
  • Phil Davis vs. Vinny Magalhaes
  • Pat Healy vs. Jim Miller
  • Cheick Kongo vs. Roy Nelson
  • Nick Catone vs. James Head

And to think this card would have also featured Eddie Alvarez too if Bellator’s lawyers weren’t shit covered assholes. Dana White has spent the better part of a year trying to illustrate just how devastating all these injuries have been to the promotion, but it’s most obvious to me when you see a card like this come together. Let’s hope it doesn’t fall apart.

    I keep seeing people refer to this card as “stacked.” I AM GOING TO THIS CARD & I’M NOT EXACTLY THRILLED. Let’s break it down:
    Jones vs Chael–>blowout city
    Belcher vs Bisping–>high level gatekeepers
    Davis vs Mags–>good fight
    Healy vs Miller–>15 minute piss break (god I hope Miller smashes though)
    Kongo vs Nelson–>good fight
    Catone vs Head–>decent fight

    I will have absolutely sick seats for free & I’m more excited for the beer than I am for these fights.

    Funny to see Bisping now fighting a guy he dismissed as beneath him only a couple months ago.

    You’ve got a chance to see Bisping KO’d and you’re complaining?

  • drunkenjunk

    looks great now, but there’s still 3 months before that gypsy whore can mangle it.

  • DJTE

    This comment is hilarious and you’ll all talk about it forever because its so great. Suck my Louis Vuitton Casino 1-3 inches bigger!

  • frickshun

    Yes b/c Belcher is just a KO monster. Can everyone stop overrating Belcher now? His striking is above average. His grappling is below average.

  • CAP

    By today’s standards yes this is stacked.

  • DJ ThunderElbows

    You have no faith in Bisping sucking?
