I hope Chael shows for this one. Even better, I hope he's booked to fight. That would be one electric crowd

I don't think the risk is worth it. Brazil hates Sonnen. I think he'd be in legitimate danger and he knows that. My guess is they put Aldo as the headliner against Hioki if he beats Roop impressively. It could be Mendes though. Throw in a few other big Brazilian names and we've got ourselves a solid card.

Better yet, I hope Andy shows for this one.
