  8. Bisping/Boetsch to Calgary is the right play

    Chuck Mindenhall

    With Chael Sonnen's rematch against Anderson Silva now migrating from Brazil to Las Vegas, UFC 148 becomes the Miami Heat of fight cards. It is stacked, stuffed, loaded and insane. And let's face it, this annually huge Vegas card had a pot of gold...
