UFC 113 Tentatively Looks Awesome

I'm a little hesitant to talk too much about a card that hasn't been officially announced yet and is still months away, because we've seen far too many examples of canceled fights turning great cards into lousy ones.

Having said that, UFC 113 looks freaking awesome.

UFC 113, which is expected to take place on May 1 in Montreal, is tentatively scheduled to feature a light heavyweight title rematch between Lyoto Machida and Shogun Rua, and the long-awaited grudge match between Rashad Evans and Rampage Jackson. That alone would make it a card that's very much worthy of your pay-per-view dollars.

But the latest news about UFC 113 includes Five Ounces of Pain reporting that Kimbo Slice will take on Matt Mitrione in Kimbo's pay-per-view debut, and MMA Junkie reporting that Josh Koscheck will fight Paul Daley in a fight that's already shaping up as a grudge match and may determine the next No. 1 welterweight contender.

We also learned this week that Patrick Cote is expected to take on Alan Belcher. And Jonathan Goulet vs. Marcus Davis, T.J. Grant vs. Johny Hendricks and Jeremy Stephens vs. Sam Stout have been reported in various places as well.

Again, we're still 15 weeks away from this fight card, and a whole lot can change in 15 weeks. But if the UFC 113 card actually turns out the way it's supposed to, there are going to be a whole lot of happy MMA fans on the first day of May.
