    UFC on FX 5 is not a card to be taken lightly. One could say,
    on the scale of things, it is FUEL TV, FX, FOX, and than PPVs
    (PPVs being the best on the scale).

    [​IMG]
    FUEL TV starts off the night, showcasing the preliminary card,
    which includes the likes of: Diego Nunes, Thiago Tavares, Jacob Volkmann,
    Yves Edwards, Shane Roller and Jeremy Stephens. Fireworks to say the least.
    (5p.m. Easter Standard time the Preliminary Card starts)


    An In Depth Look
    [​IMG]
    Antonio 'Big Foot' Silva, 33, the "Veteran" of the two fighters,
    stands at 6'4 and weighs 264lbs on fight day.
    Antonio's claim to fame was his 2011
    Tournament
    win over long-time favorite Fedor Emelienko.
    Since then he has been knocked out twice in the first round...
    Travis Hapa Browne, 30 years young, is 13-0,
    his last 3 wins containing two finishes,
    both in Round 1, one over Stefan Struve.
    (The other being submission of the Night.)
    This is Travis's biggest test to date (not just based on size),
    taking experience into consideration.
    Silva's gameplan may be to take it to the ground and work his jujitsu,
    but Browne has a Purple belt in that category as well and is no slouch.

    [​IMG]
    Jay Heiron vs Jake Ellenberger is a rematch of Vet vs Young gun.
    Now Jay is EVEN wiser than ever,
    with more experience then when they first met in 2006,
    but he is even older as well, now 36.
    Ellenberger, former up and coming #1 contender,
    is 27, and coming back with a vengeance after his first loss in 2 years.
    (Coming by way of brutal KO).
    This will be one to watch out for, as both are wrestlers,
    Jake now with tremendous power in his hands.
    Will Jay's technical side provide an answer to Jake's power?

    JOHN DODSON vs JUSSIER DA SILVA
    John, 28, has POWER in his TINY little hands.
    He's won Knockout of the Night once in the UFC,
    Knockout of the Season, Season 14 of The Ultimate Fighter,
    and LASTLY won that season as well.
    My week 17 thread has it wrong, I assumed this was a Bantamweight fight,
    but I believe John has dropped down to Flyweight,
    his more natural weight-class...Watch out.
    Jussier is a young Brazilian with experience, 27,
    winning the Shooto South American 123lb Championship in 2008,
    and defending it until 2011 (though never loosing the title).
    His record currently stands at 14-1, his lone loss coming to Ian McCall.

    [​IMG]
    Last but not least, we have Josh Neer vs Justin Edwards.
    Josh is 29 years young and has a WEALTH of knowledge and experience in the sport!
    Before being knocked out in ROUND 1 his last fight,
    by Mike Pierce, Neer was on a 6 fight win-streak.
    Edwards is the same age, though standing at 7-2,
    you can see he is still new to the sport. (Neer's record being 33-11-1).
    The submission expert hasn't been able to finish a fight in the UFC,
    but Neer could be just the opponent he is waiting for.



    WHO is YOUR pick for FIGHT of the NIGHT!?!?!?

    Dirty KO for Pierce I believe, that was an undercard right though,
    I was focusing on MainCards, maybe next time I'll touch on the lower fighters.
