If a UFC event has ever been cursed, then UFC 137 certainly seems to be that event.

Despite all of the changes and injuries that have effected the main event, it appears that all engines are go, and the weigh-ins will be taking place this Friday, October 27.

The weigh-ins are always lots of fun, but it will be Nick Diaz that everyone will undoubtedly have their eye on. No doubt he’ll show up, but will there be any crazy antics? Or will his respect for BJ Penn prove strong enough for the fighter to keep his cool, and show his opponent some respect?

In what may be his last fight, the once great fighter Mirko Filipovic will go up against Roy Nelson, in a match that very well may see the loser of the fight leaving the UFC. Will Roy Nelson’s graveyard training be enough to avoid Mirko’s left leg?

One fight on the preliminary card that is sure to cause sparks is between Dennis Siver and Donald Cerrone. Both men are incredibly skilled fighters who go for broke in their fights, it’s certainly a fight no fan should miss. Make sure to check it out on SpikeTV.

Despite losing its main event fighters, UFC 137 will still be an awesome event that no one should miss.
