NEWARK - Given the speed of Rousimar Palhares' win over Tomasz Drwal, and the fact that there's only 10 bouts on the card tonight for UFC 111, we've got ourselves a little intermission right now.

Why, you ask? Because there are only two fights left on the undercard and they're both going to air live on Spike starting at 9 p.m.

So while you await the start of Ricardo Almeida vs. Matt Brown and Nate Diaz vs. Rory Markham, stretch out a bit, get a refill from your refrigerator, or microwave yourself a super pretzel. Me? I'll be here inside the Prudential Center listening to beats and watching our photographer gawk at Octagon Girls Rachelle Leah and Chandella.
