FS 1 fights at 8 p.m.
Kyung Ho Kang (11-6, 1 no contest, 136) vs. Chico Camus (12-4, 135) - Camus got a great reaction since he's from Milwaukee. Ben Askren is his second

PPV at 10 p.m.
Dustin Poirier (13-3, 145.5) vs. Erik Koch (13-2, 145) - Koch also from Milwaukee
Brandon Vera (12-6, 1 no contest, 241) vs. Ben Rothwell (262) - Vera looks completely different, I guess 36 pounds will do that for you. Let's just Vera doesn't look built for speed for stamina.
Clay Guida (146) vs. Chad Mendes (14-1, 145) - Guida looks in the best shape I've ever seen him. Guida making fun of Mendes' physique, in the sense it's so good.
Josh Barnett (32-6, 255) vs. Frank Mir (16-7, 248) - Barnett never looks in great shape but usually doesn't get tired. Mir is a lot lighter than he's been in recent years, probably for the better.
Benson Henderson (19-2, 155) vs. Anthony Pettis (16-2, 155) for the UFC lightweight title. Nice staredown. Those who are there are hot for this fight. Pettis does look in great shape, there were questions about his conditioning coming off knee surgery. Neither guy gave very compelling interviews.
