    I am thinking it is going be Ben Henderson, also heard Gomi will be on card. Will not be shocked if Rampage gets on card also.

    the japanese fans would go crazy for the Aoki Edgar fight, but since Frankie has far better striking and wrestling i don’t see Aoki having a hope

  10. Sure looked that way against Melendez. However, he did beat Alvarez.

  11. I was thinking it would be Aoki. But I don’t think he’s looking to sign with UFC and is scheduled to fight Alvarez again.
