UFC 126 Preview: SB Nation Breaks Down The Main Fight Card

It's still early in 2011 but this night of fights could shake out to be card of the year. Depending on which fighters really bring it tonight, there should be no shortage of high-charged action. The fact that KID Yamamoto didn't even make the main televised card should really tell you something. I'm as excited about his arrival in the UFC as anyone, but Dana White and Joe Silva haven't exactly given him a lay up. Demetrious Johnson is no cupcake and I'm actually taking him in that fight.

The UFC has upped the ante to cash in on Superbowl eve and it's paid off, big time. Average ticket prices have skyrocketed as fans flocked to Vegas for a weekend of partying. With names like Anderson Silva, Vitor Belfort, Rich Franklin, Forrest Griffin, Ryan Bader and Jon Jones, the UFC has done a great job at positioning themselves for a huge pay day.

Stay tunes to SB Nation MMA throughout today and tonight as we bring you previews, live results and commentary.
