The Ultimate Fighting Championship presents "UFC 137: Penn vs. Diaz," this Saturday night on pay-per-view. While the original welterweight championship fight of Georges St-Pierre vs. Carlos Condit has been scratched due to injuries, the event still presents a great deal of mixed martial arts action. There are serious ramifications for UFC 137's winners and losers.

UFC legend BJ Penn takes on former Strikeforce welterweight champion Nick Diaz in the main event. A win by either one could position them for a title shot following St-Pierre vs. Condit. Heavyweights Matt Mitrione and MMA veteran Cheick Kongo do battle in the co-main event. Kongo looks to claim his second straight win, while Mitrione tries to rise up the heavyweight rankings.

The legendary Mirko Cro Cop is hoping to prolong his UFC career and snap a two-fight losing skid against The Ultimate Fighter 10 winner Roy "Big Country" Nelson. Both fighters can't afford a third straight loss and may have their UFC jobs on the line. If Nelson loses, he may be out of the UFC, but will most likely stay active. If Cro Cop loses, especially via knockout, it could be the end for his spectacular career.

UFC 137 airs at 9pm/ET this Saturday night, live on pay-per-view.

    Not to say I wouldn't love to watch it but cmon... money doesn't grow on trees... I just can't......

    They should realize that like 2 million viewers at $10 a pop > like 10,000 viewers at $50 a pop... same goes for WWE/TNA/Boxing PPVs too

    While I regularly watch UFC on Spike, I never buy the pay-per-view events because they are too expensive, especially considering the PPV programming happens every few weeks to a month.

    The main event I would definitely love to watch but it's really the only fight on the card I am interested in at the moment. I have a feeling Diaz will win but if BJ did I don't think that puts him up for the title shot. Don't think he could win that one.

    Although I would love to see 'Blow Job' Penn get his ass handed to him, I will save my money and wait for it to come out later. I can read about it or hear about it inthe news the following morning. Arrogant SOB that thinks he is God's gift to the UFC/MMA fighters. Just an overly cocky fighter that needs to be taken down a couple of pegs.
