UFC 110 is dotted with matches where fighters struggled at times in 2009 and are looking to right the ship against less experienced/accomplished competition.

    Cain Velasquez, with just seven pro fights, steps way up to fight to Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, a veteran in his 39th fight. Several fighters have their backs against the wall. The UFC is extremely loyal but could it be the end of the road for Keith Jardine, Wanderlei Silva and Stephan Bonnar? The public is on the other side in all three of the fights featuring those guys.

    Check out Dave Farra from speaking with myself and Ben Fowlkes from Cage Potato.
