LOL, I'm glad you guys had fun with it, I'll analyze the first card first:

1. Main Event: Quinton Jackson vs. Wanderlai Silva (LHW Championship)
2. Co-Main Event: Matt Hughes vs Matt Serra
3. Chuck Liddell vs Lyoto Machida
4. Spencer Fisher vs Roger Huerta
5. Joe stevenson vs Joe Lauzon
Swing Bout
6.Demian Maia vs. Ricardo Almeida
Undercard:
7.Kimbo Slice Vs Brock Lesner
8.
9. Sylvia vs. Herring
10. Jon Fitch vs. Josh Koschek
11. Nate Diaz vs. Melvin Gulliard
12. Thago Alves vs Diego Sanchez

It looks like a great PPV, and very realistic until match 7.

There is no way in hell, Kimbo Slice (not ufc, but w/e) vs. brock Lesnar would be on the Undercard...if anything it would be the main event or co-mainevent.

There is no way Hamil vs Bisping two would be on the undercard....ever. Most likely it would main event a fight night.

There is no way Sylvia vs. Herring would be on the undercard...have to be a co-main event. T

here is no way Jon Fitch vs. Josh Koschek would be on the undercard, and it can't happen, noth are on the same team and are drill partners. :(

Nate Diaz vs. Melvin Guilliard, and Thiago Alves vs. Diego Shancez are just about the best fricken undercard matches one could come up with. Both of these matches are capable of being on the main card or even maineventing a fight night, but due to the quality of the main card its very realistic that these matches would indeed make the undercard.

All in all, as matchmakers, we are very creative...but as fans we are too demanding, and unrealistic to take Joe Silva's job. Seriously, if we were Joe Silva up and comming fighters like Kurt Pellegrino, or Tim Boetsch would never get a fight, and new comers would never be given a chance to shine because we want all matches even the untelevised ones to be main event quality.

Lets try again, I moved some matches around and removed the matches that just can't happen.

I moved Almeida vs. Maia to the undercard. This is a main card match for sure, but when the main card is already stacked its realistic for a match like this to get pushed to the undercard (like Melvin/Nat and Diego/Alves).

Moved Bisping/Hamil to the main card, and Huerta vs. Fisher to the swing bout (its the closest Heurta will ever get to an undercard...but given his opponent it makes sense)

Removed Kimbo/Brock (no room on the card, its a main event/co-mainevent...but not bigger than teh championship matches we already have).

Heering/Sylvia could be a main card match, but because Slyvia just main evented, and Heering just co-main evented...its a co-main event until one of them loses again...hence no room on the card.

So only three matches to go, lets do this.

1. Main Event: Quinton Jackson vs. Wanderlai Silva (LHW Championship)
2. Co-Main Event: Matt Hughes vs Matt Serra
3. Chuck Liddell vs Lyoto Machida
4. Matt Hamil vs. Michael Bisping 2
5. Joe stevenson vs Joe Lauzon
Swing Bout
6. Spencer Fisher vs Roger Huerta
Undercard:
7.
8.
9.
10. Demian Maia vs. Ricardo Almeida
11. Nate Diaz vs. Melvin Gulliard
12. Thago Alves vs Diego Sanchez

Thats an awesome card. I think this topic has gotten off track though, and alves is listed twice.

I'm just going to continue the card...

1. Main Event: Quinton Jackson vs. Wanderlai Silva (LHW Championship)
2. Co-Main Event: Matt Hughes vs Matt Serra
3. Chuck Liddell vs Lyoto Machida
4. Matt Hamil vs. Michael Bisping 2
5. Joe stevenson vs Joe Lauzon
Swing Bout
6. Spencer Fisher vs Roger Huerta
Undercard:
7. Travis Lutter vs. Evan Tanner
8. Thago Alves vs Diego Sanchez
9. Nate Diaz vs. Melvin Gulliard
10. Demian Maia vs. Ricardo Almeida
11.
12. Marvin Eastman vs. Kendall Grove

I rearanged the card a bit. I think the way the UFC sets up theri PPV's are that they try to arrange the least compelling match to the highest. So thats what I did. When adding the final undercard match keep this in mind, if it is more compelling that Lutter vs Tanner then put it at twelve and move everything down, if its least compelling than Eastman and Grove then put it last and move up.

What don't you guys get when he says, FIGHTERS THAT ARE IN UFC!!!! ARONA? BABALU?



haha.

but if you wanna nit pick theres no way in hell Lesnar vs Kongo would not be on the maincard.....so your not following the rule of being realistic in where you place the bouts ...banghead:


Uh... Lesnar is one of UFC's top money maker fighters... Lesnar vs Kongo would be awesome to watch.. Wrestling vs a Huge Kickboxer, both in tremendes shape... u cant even argue this with me.. Kongo vs Lesnar would not be in the prelims..
