Wow, UFC 99 Sucks

With all the excitement over UFC 98 and 100, I did not notice the final card for 99 until today. Lets just say it isn't gonna set any records. The main event of Rich Franklin vs Wanderlei Silva is about as good as it gets, but everything else stinks. Mike Swick vs Ben Saunders as the #2? Three opponents on the fight card who don't even have pictures? I'd expect that out of a regional show in Nashville, not the UFC's debut in Germany.

I guess we have BJ Penn to thank for this. He got all crampy about fighting on a tape delay PPV a million miles from Hawaii and decided to take a vacation. It would have been a decent lineup with his fight against Florian. Hopefully Velasquez/Herring actually gets added.

(It's bad when a one-sided fight featuring Heath Herring makes me hopeful.)
