Robbie Peralta (15-3, 1 no contest, 144) vs. Jason Young (9-5, 145) - Crowd very enthusiastic, big reaction to Young and his U.K. flag underwear.  Both physically looked in great shape

Gunnar Nelson (9-0-1, 175) vs. DaMarques Johnson (18-11, 183) - They just announced this as a catch weight fight, but evidently Johnson and Nelson are at a different catch weight)

Brad Tavares (8-2, 185) vs. Tom Kong Watson (15-4, 186), Watson showed up in a plaid sports jacket) - Watson didn't get the reaction I expected.

Akira Corassani (11-4-1, 144) vs. Andy Ogle (8-1, 144) - Ogle from TUF in his UFC debut got a big reaction.

Jimi Manuwa (11-0, 204) vs. Kyle Kingsbury (11-4, 1 no contest, 204) - Kingsbury looks like Eric Young with the crazy facial hair) - Crowd liked Kingsbury because he wore a Sherlock Holmes hat and pipe)

Fuel fights starting 4 p.m. Eastern

Che Mills (14-5, 1 no contest, 170) vs. Duane Ludwig (29-13, 169) - Crowd big behind Mills.

John Maguire (18-3, 169) vs. John Hathaway (15-1, 169) - Maguire looks a little soft.  Both of these fighters are Britsh, but fans see Hathaway as the bigger star.

Matt Wiman (14-6, 156) vs. Paul Sass (13-0, 156) - Sass didn't get so big a reaction.  He should, seriously he is one of the most fun fighters to watch in the UFC today.

Yves Jabouin (18-7, 136) vs. Brad Pickett (22-6, 135) - Pickett a big favorite. This on paper looks to be a great fight.

Amir Sadollah (7-3, 169) vs. Outlaw Dan Hardy (24-10, 1 no contest, 169) - Hardy obviously the most popular fighter here.  He grew up close enough to this arena that he walked here for weigh-ins.
