This Saturday in Vancouver, British Columbia the Ultimate Fighting Championship will hold their next pay per view UFC 115. The main event includes Rich Franklin vs Chuck Liddell. Honestly right now this is probably one of the weakest pay per view card for the UFC. Now if this was a free television card on Spike television then the card would not be bad at all. The main event fighters are both coming off losses and it is hard to say what would happen for the winner. The light heavyweight division is so deep that the winner would have a couple more challenges to face before even being considered a contender for the title.
The rest of the UFC 115 card looks disappointing in my eyes. Pat Barry a developing fighter against a worn and beat down Mirko Cro Cop as a co-main event is “ugghhhh”. Then you have Paulo Thiago versus Martin Kampmann which is a good fight between two ranked welterweights. After that I can really care less about the fights. It just does not appeal to me.
Franklin vs Liddell – Franklin via Unanimous Desicion
Barry vs Cro Cop – Barry via TKO 2nd round
Thiago vs Kampmann – Thiago via Submission 2nd round

We are two games into the 2010 NHL Eastern Conference Finals. And the Montreal Canadians have as many goals in this series as me and you have. The difference is that the Flyers have nine goals, and thus have a 2-0 series lead. Nothing is working for Montreal. Halak has been shaky in net, especially in game one. Those guys who usually score are getting shut down by Philadelphia’s tenacious defense.
But as Philadelphia showed last round, anything is possible. With the series going back to Montreal, a win in Game 3 would put them right back in the series. A loss, and well, Montreal will have to repeat history that just happened last round. Montreal may have the most Stanley Cups in NHL history, but with the way they are playing, they won’t be adding another this year.

While six of the top super middleweights duke it out in Showtime’s Super Six World Boxing Classic, titleholder Lucian Bute is off doing his own thing — and doing it well.
Bute is clearly the best 168-pounder in the world not involved in the Super Six, which boasts titleholders Andre Ward and Carl Froch along with Andre Dirrell, Mikkel Kessler, Arthur Abraham and alternate Allan Green (who replaced Jermain Taylor). However, Bute, who had previously appeared on Showtime, was not invited to join the tournament party, so HBO scooped him up.
Before middleweight champion Kelly Pavlik defends his belts against junior middleweight titlist Sergio Martinez in the HBO “World Championship Boxing” main event at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, N.J., on Saturday night (10 ET), the split-site telecast will open in Montreal, where the Bell Centre crowd will be roaring for the popular Bute when he makes his fifth defense against powerful Edison Miranda of Colombia.
