  This question cannot really be answered until after the fights are over, I know that for sure, but looking at the card on paper I would like to know how many free cards have actually looked this good in the history of MMA on American television.

   So far , four arguably, depending on who you ask , fights will be broadcast free and will not make me preorder, confirm, then wait for my provider to see if they set up my fight on the requested channel. Nothing but having to change the channel over to good ole CBS for on paper looks to be the best free card that I have ever had the chance to see.

   Will all four fights be a total bust, it is highly doubtful but it could happen!

    Enter the Shields Hedo fight, depending on how Shields prefers to lull fighters to death, along with the viewers, noting that Lyoto Machida is prone to do the same thing at times yet no one questions his propensities to drag a fight out I am very exited about the card.

   Even if Fedor backs out again, don't think it couldn't happen, and they can manage to put a very mediocre first fight in it's place I would be a very happy camper, what a gay cliche, but that is how I feel right now.

   CBS will not sink if this card does not live up to it's billing, unless all eight fighters just completely stink up the cage. Does Mousasi need a first round KO highlight reel, no, will Fedor follow his modis op and try to fight with his opposition's strength instead of doing what he does best, probably, will Melendez stop Aoki with his superior boxing , very underrated boxing skills, I believe so.

   The question of the night , will Aoki be allowed to wear his long spandex tights, after watching Frank Mir wearing trunks past his knees with his ankles and knees taped so much almost no skin was visible I don't know how they can stop him from wearing them. But that's not my decision so I wont lose any sleep worrying about it.

   What I want from the B/R community is a plain and simple yes or know with the added flair only this website has to add great ideas complaints and the occasional WTF answers that can always be relied on.

   Anyway, there is no chance that I can see watching reruns on any channel for free when I can watch live action for the same price, ONE TIME ME AND SOME FRIENDS WERE ARGUING ABOUT THE BEST KIND OF HAM AND I BLURTED OUT , FREE HAM. will that be the case for this card, we will know when it's over.
