    Not sure abt Wanchai, but u can try Wheel at Hollywood Road. Call them to check if they showing it, as the banner claim the show UFC coverage.

    I probably going to give this a miss, as the lineup don't seems to be as stacked as UFC126. But this probably the better lineup for non-US base UFC event.

    Wheel, The
    G/F Winning House,
    26 Hollywood Road

    Curious how Bisping/Rivera goes down after all the smack talk and clowning Rivera did leading up to the fight.

    Scratch, the pool hall/bar in Wan Chai has shown UFCs in the past. Not sure if they still do... you can call them up and ask.

    totally disgusted w bisping post-fight acts, so much for professional...

    glad to see Siver came out victor as an underdog...

    looks like Dana White finally found a entry point to potential 1.2Bn population market, when Zhang (1st Chinese in UFC) won his debut in 48s.

    Bisping is a manufactured fighter. Got tomato cans to build up his record and the hype machine to sell the UFC product to the British market. He lost to Matt Hamill no matter what the judges said. He was put to sleep in spectacular fashion by Henderson. He's simply a marketing tool (and simply a "tool" as he showed after the fight) for the UFC.

    Zhang will likely get a string of tomato cans to build up his standing in the UFC and the UFC in China.

    Yeah, Hando KO punch on Bis was real sweet.

    U have to give it to Dana, he do has his marketing skills, n really know how to expand to new audiences.
    - Jap fighters such as sexyama kept getting co main fights despite below par results, but he did get 3 'fight of the night" out of hif 3 fights
    - Both Siver & George Sotiro been getting ave 3 fights per yr, but they did proved themselves with teh results.
    - He brought in few rookie (no fight experience) ex NFL players into Heavyweight TUF (Rashad vs Rampage), to expand to NFL audiences. Meathead turned out to be one hack of heavyweight.
    - if Zhang can continue his win in UFC, it will be a big paycheck for Dana.

    bisbing is horrible....

    it is a difficult thing to balance...trying to grow the sport while trying to show the best fighters in the world. Its not realistic that all the best fighters will happen to be from that country the UFC is currently in growth mode (china for example).

    but no matter what, im a fan of the sport. great to watch!

    any of you guys down to meet up to watch the next time, lets do it!
