The main event this Saturday May 28 at UFC 130 was supposed to complete the trilogy between MMA fighters Gray Maynard and Frankie Edgar. Unfortunately the fight has been sidelined due to injuries. Luckily for the UFC, Quinton "Rampage" Jackson and Matt Hamill were already on the card and now they will take center stage as the main event at UFC 130.
Rampage is a fan favorite and with Hamill needing a win to stay in UFC title contention, this will make for a good fight. Look for Hamill to use his outstanding wrestling skills to get this fight to the ground. Rampage has great takedown defense and will look to keep it standing so he can stand and bang. I have a feeling Hamill might get knocked out in this fight.
It what now is the co-main event, two title contenders in the UFC heavyweight division, Frank Mir and Roy Nelson, face off in the UFC cage. Both fighters are looking good and a win on Saturday puts them in the running for a UFC heavyweight title fight.

UFC 130 will be taking place in Las Vegas, Nevada at the MGM Grand Garden Arena. It's looking like a good time to be in Vegas, fights and a long weekend. Unfortunately for Los Angeles MMA fans, it doesn't look like the UFC is coming to Los Angeles any time soon.
