UFC 62 Banner

Tomorrow, the Ultimate Fighting Championship® will feature UFC 62: "Liddell vs. Sobral" at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, Nevada.

In case you're brain dead, or have been living in Minsk for the last few months, here is the rest of the card:

-Griffin-Bonnar II
-Josh Neer vs. Nick Diaz
-Wes Combs vs. Wilson Gouveia
-Cory Walmsley vs. David Heath
-Alan Belcher vs. Yushin Okami
-Cheick Kongo vs. Christian Wellisch
-Rob Macdonald vs. Eric Schafer
-Hermes Franca vs. Jamie Varner

There are definitely some quality fights, but the UFC hasn't really been doing too much to hype this event. Not quite sure why that is.

Maybe because the UFC feels it got burned by the last pay-per-view event, which was marred by Ortiz-Shamrock-gate, so it decided to pull the reigns back a little bit.
