For anyone in Canada or it even if you're in the States try it http://www.sportsnet.ca/ufc-live/ this stream is much better quality compared to the YouTube one.

@flying_frontkick
That's the same stream that they have on Faceboo (fb.com/ufc). I prefer this one because you can have a better HD quality, but sometimes it's not working too well..

Am I the only one with a lot of decisions in a row for this card? I have every fight from Story-Ebersole on as a decision, but I don't really see any of the fights going any other way. Lawler could possibly KO Rory, it's always possible, and the Hendricks possibility in there too, but going the other way on both fights I don't see there being a finish in either one.

@greg I just checked up on a few cards and this does seem to be one of the higher ones, by a bit.  Velasquez/Dos Santos III, Jones/Gustaffson, and Henderson/Pettis are all in the low 1600's.  Weidman/Silva was in the 1900's

158, 159, 160, 161, 162, Fight Night 26, 165, 166 were higher.  Although maybe it passes one or two of those in the next hour.

Still, the picker numbers are slowly creeping up, which is why I am not too impressed by tonight's turnout. 

I suspect a lot of people are just tired of GSP, sadly.

I have eight decisions in a row starting @ Story/Ebersole. 

It's gonna be a damn long night if that is the case.

I don't think Canadians are getting tired of GSP, it's all over mass media this week, especially in Quebec. A local TV station even sent an hockey specialist in Vegas for the fight. You know that GSP is mainstream in Quebec when they send hockey people to his fight! (Sadly only GSP is becoming mainstream here, not a lot of people know that "UFC" isn't a sport).
GSP > Hockey!

I've got half the fights going the distance and I'm really hoping I'm wrong on some of these.
