UFC 79 open thread

The Ultimate Fighting Championship caps off 2007 with what might end up its biggest card of the year business-wise on Saturday.

UFC 79 from the sold-out Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas is a loaded card. Georges St. Pierre vs. Matt Hughes for the interim welterweight title tops the bill, as one of the sport's great rivalries gets contested for the third time.

Chuck Liddell has his long-awaited showdown with Wanderlei Silva. This match isn't what it might have been three years ago, but the winner will keep himself among the top contenders in the light heavyweight division.

Plus, an intriguing undercard is topped by the debut of Team Quest South's Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou, who will be tested by undefeated Black House fighter Lyoto Machida.
