Nevertheless, he thanked his supporters and haters all the same.

With UFC 128: Shogun vs Jones fast approaching, Fighting Insider takes a peek at the fighters on the preliminary card.

It is safe to say that the best card for 2011 will take place this Saturday, at UFC 128: Shogun vs Jones. While the pay-per-view card will highlight a big UFC Light Heavyweight title fight, the preliminary roster green lits good action as well.

The preliminary fight card will kick off with a catch-weight brawl between Nick Catone and Constantinos Philippou. Though it has been more than a year since Nick Catone’s last fight, it was a victory over Jesse Forbes. Constantinos Philippou, on the other hand, will be making a UFC debut as a late replacement for Dan Miller. And it looks like the lack of preparation will hurt the latter, as Nick Catone will go for the win.
