As you would expect with only two days to go before a UFC, there's a whole bunch of coverage of the event. Here's a round up:
- The official UFC site has videos building up almost all the fights
- Joe Newman at 411 Mania has a good primer on betting on the event (note, his recommended bets are all different than mine)
- MMA Ring Report discusses MacDonald vs Okami
- CBS Sports has a great preview
- Alex Marvel of Fox Sports fellates the overrated Jorge Gurgel
- The Miami Herald interviews Rich Franklin
- And MMAWeekly has a scary report -- Visa troubles have delayed Anderson Silva's entry into the country.
That last one could have real implications for the fight as Anderson will have very little time to recover from the long flight and time change. It's bad enough that they're making him defend his belt in Franklin's home town (which is incidentally one of the most racist cities in the country) but a bad case of jet lag on top of giving up the home field advantage might really impact the fight's outcome.
