UFC 131 live from Rogers Arena in beautiful Vancouver, British Columbia will take place this Saturday, June 11, 2011.
Headlining the evening's event will be a UFC heavyweight clash between two of the most lethal knockout artists in the division, Junior dos Santos versus Shane Carwin.
Originally slated to challenge Brock Lesnar, an illness to the former heavyweight champion has sidelined the avalanche of a man and now Carwin will replace Lesnar to compete against dos Santos.
Other main card action includes the featherweight debut of Kenny Florian as he faces the highly ranked and heavily talented Diego Nunes.
In a middleweight bout, one of mixed martial arts greatest jiu-jitsu practitioners inside the Octagon, Demian Maia, will have a hard-fought war against the heavy-hitting "Filipino wrecking machine," Mark Munoz.
Additionally, a lightweight bout between seasoned WEC veteran Donald Cerrone and newcomer to the UFC Vagner Rocha will surely entertain the fans in Canada.
Please follow along as I provide a full fight card preview, analysis, and predictions.
Enjoy the fights.
