Irvin should have came in bald headed. That way with a tie in promotion they could have given away free Head Blades at the gate to the first 5000 kids under the age of 13.

I kept thinking that Irvin was going to look way bigger than Silva but in this shot of them doing the stare down they look almost exactly the same size. I know Irvin is definitely more cut but I was still kind of surprised.

Wow, Anderson came out at 206. Makes you wonder, whether he wouldn't be better off fighting at 205 altogether. In any case look forward to him destroying Irvin.

Oh yeah, and I'm also curious about Franca's return and how much ring rust has affected his game.
