I can tell you this much, the LHW card gets tossed out the window for me because Tito is the co-headliner and Chuck is the headliner. I wouldn't pay money right now to see those two as the headline attractions.

I'm not going to bash too much but I really wouldn't be intrested in any of the main events some of the co0mains are cool but all of thoes mains seem lopsided or just lame.

I said all fighters in their prime. Of course no one would pay right now with both Liddell and Ortiz on crazy losing streaks. But if Liddell/Griffin and Ortiz/Rampage all fought during their prime, it would be some amazing fights.

The point of this post was to mention which fights I would like to see as a fan if I was given the chance to make my own PPV card by division. It's just fantasy match-ups. Of course I know fights like Dos Santos/Arlovski, GSP/Diego, and Edgar/Taylor wouldn't happen right now, these are just fights I'd personally love to see. Also remember I mentioned I'd love to see these fights while each fighter was in their prime.

It can be argued that Dos Santos and Arlovski are two of the strongest strikers to come out of the Heavyweight division. If both fighters fought in their prime, I'm sure there would be fireworks and almost 100% certain it would end in a knockout.

Liddell/Griffin would be nothing but violence in their primes. Both love to brawl, and wouldn't shy away from each other. If Liddell didn't KO him, Griffin would give him one hell of a war. Not to mention you have the storyline of teacher vs. student from back during TUF 1.

Anderson Silva and Michael Bisping, nothing special here. I'd just love to see Bisping get outclassed on all levels then knocked out.

St. Pirre and Sanchez would just be a great fight to watch, both on the ground and on the feet. GSP would win, but Sanchez would make it fun to watch.

Edgar and Taylor would be my personal favorite out of all the main card match-ups. If you haven't seen Taylor, don't let his record fool you. He's a tough kid with lots of heart, and almost all of his losses have ended with the Fight Of The Night award. His issue is that the UFC usually puts him up against wrestlers with size advantage, and Taylor would rather brawl. I think both Edgar and Taylor would be best suited at 145.

Okay, I'll edit. The LHW card, for me, gets thrown out the window because plenty of fighters on that card never had a prime at 205.

Rich Franklin, Anderson Silva, Keith Jardine, Matt Hamill, & Ryan Bader.

Jon Jones has never had a prime at 205 either, but he's really exciting to watch. I suppose you could say the same about Anderson, but since you have him fighting Rashad Evans, someone I think has severe issues when it comes to getting hit, I don't see that as an exciting fight.

I'm not a Tito fan, either.

If I had to pick, I always go with the big boys. HW for me.

Umm, HWs I guess, but that undercard for them is probably the worst of them all. Also, I'd wonder why the co-main event was such a much more important fight than the main event (Prime Fedor v. Cain is what people are going to be talking about for years).

If the match ups were right, I'd rather see a card full of LWs, but I would refuse to buy a ticket to something headlined by such a mismatch as Edgar v. Taylor.


Here is a LW card I would like to see.
Edgar v Alvarez
Maynard v. Dunham
Soitoropolis v. J. Miller
Pettis v. Gomi
Sherk v. Melendez

Undercard
Florian v Cerrone
Guida v Olivera
Aoki v Ben Henderson
Guillard v Sanchez
Stephens v Barboza
Siver v Stout

I'd sell body organs to watch that card.
