What fights outside of the Dan Henderson-Shogun Rua main event are you intrigued by on the UFC Fight Night 38 card, and why?


DAN MOORE, MMATORCH UK COLUMNIST

I'm interested to see how Rony Jason and Steven Siler bounce back from defeats to Jeremy Stephens and Dennis Bermudez, respectively. No shame in losing to either guy, it's how you comeback from adversity that counts. Neither Jason nor Siler will ever be contenders, but both are very capable in their own right and both have beaten some decent opponents since joining the UFC.

Norman Parke is a very capable British fighter and currently 3-0 in the UFC, but Leonardo Santos will be his biggest test to date, especially in front of a partisan home crowd vociferously cheering the Brazilian submission specialist. Other than that nothing really appeals to me bar the main event. It won't stop me watching it, though, and I'm certain a fair few of the fights will end up being exciting encounters, as they usually do in Brazil.


KALE HAVERVOLD, MMATORCH CONTRIBUTOR

I'm actually quite excited to see how Jussier Formiga fares against Scott Jorgenson. Those are two very fast fighters and I am excited to watch that fight.


FRANK HYDEN, MMATORCH CONTRIBUTOR

Well, to be perfectly honest I'm not that interested in Henderson-Rua. I'm not expecting much from this fight, but I hope I'm wrong. The only fight I really care about on this card is Jussier Formiga vs. Scott Jorgensen. I think that fight will be very good. The other stuff is just kind of there. I just have a bad feeling that we're going to watch Henderson circle Rua all night looking for a chance to throw the H-Bomb. It's just as likely to be a bad fight as a good one, in my eyes. Hopefully the crowd makes a difference.


CASH NORMAN, MMATORCH CONTRIBUTOR

Well, this is a hard question to answer because there really isn't a fight I'm intrigued to see. Ultimate Fighter winners Rony Jason and Diego Brandao are both on the card. I think each are very talented guys that most likely need to sit down with a sports psychologist and work on their mindset. They are both erratic and seem to be their own worst enemy.

I am resigned to the fact that any card held outside of the United States or Canada will specifically be tailored to the country of origin; while I may know some of the fighters on that card, I do not have a vested interest in them.


TOM STRONG, MMATORCH UK CONTRIBUTOR

To be brutally honest here. There isn't much on this card that really excites me down from the main card. With C.B Dolloway vs. Cezar Ferreira as the co-main event says a lot! Though one fight or fighter should I say, that I always enjoy watching is Diego Brandao, his wild fighting style and aggression he brings to each fight always excites me. Diego only being 5' 7" and his opponent Will Chope standing at a massive 6' 4", with both of their fighting styles we could really be in for an interesting fight.
