End of the Year UFC Meh: Talkin' the Jive about UFC Cards

From over at MMAJunkie....
So....the end of the year card, arguably the biggest card OTHER than the SuperBowl Weekend one...has a main event for the UFC HW title (which is technically a rematch form which Cain didn't last one round despite, I know, the cage rust coming off of injury/shoulder surgery....regardless, it's a rematch of a fight that didn't last 5 minutes the first time).

Followed by...are you ready?????
Joe Lauzon vs Jim Miller. For a vague, might be moving closer to a LW title shot might not be type of bout. I know, I can't believe what an awesome card this is going to be already.
Then we have that guy that squeaked by a passive debut'ing Lombard (someone made a ton of money, maybe Lombard and company betting on the "not a snowball's chance in hell Boetsch).
It's obviously the UFC doesn't see Boetsch as anything other than what he is b/c this is the guy he gets after beating the much-ballyhooed Lombard).

Belcher takes on Okami (another rematch...le sigh) in what will likely go to a decision this time.
2nd time's the charm for Belcher as I think he's improved quite a bit more than Okami has since they both debuted against one another.

And Chris Leben comes off his second drug suspension and gets to fight on the main card of the 2nd biggest card of the year.

Aside from Pickett vs Wineland and Guillard vs Varner, the undercard barely registers on the richter scale of "better than a Strikeforce" undercard.
UFC 155: Dos Santos vs. Velasquez 2
