What do you think the card will look like: Assuming it will be realistic and will feauture Royce Gracie? Not a fantasy card, just thinking what you think it'll look like

Main Event: Silva Vs Shogun
They said he'd be back in august... and Okami isn't contracted to fight Silva yet...

Co-main event: Jose Aldo Vs Chad Mendes Championship

Main Card: Royce Gracie Vs Mark Bocek
Main Card: Vitor Belfort Vs Brian Stann
Main Card: Franklin/Bonnar Vs Lyoto Machida 2

Prelims: Charles Oliveria Vs Loser of Dunham/Sotiropolis
Prelims: Lil Nog Vs Cyrille Diabatte


(other potentials that crossed my mind were Maia Vs Bisping. Big Nog Vs Mir. Paulo Thiago Vs Kampmann)

I dont see how Royce Gracie can compete with anyone in the UFC at the moment. Last time Hughes it was over 170lb at a catch weight if i remember correctly. Bocek is 155 but would still beat royce.

I would definately like to see Okami finally get his title shot. I would also like to see either Griffin vs. Shogun 2 and Machida vs. Franklin 2 or Shogun vs. Franklin and Machida vs. Griffin. Add Big Nog vs. Schaub and Royce Gracie and you've got your main card.

Main Event:
Anderson Silva vs. Yushin Okami

Main Card.
Mauricio "Shogun" Rua vs. Forrest Griffin II
Lyoto Machida vs. Rich Franklin II
Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira vs. Brendan Schaub
Royce Gracie vs. ?

Spike Prelims:
Charles Oliveira vs. Bart Palaszewski
Edson Barboza vs. Spencer Fisher

Facebook Prelims:
Rani Yahya vs. Dustin Poirier
Wagnney Fabiano vs. Eddie Wineland


Un aired prelims:
These two fights are hard to guess. I'm pretty sure they will be local talent against some mid to low tier lighter weight fighters.


EDIT: I didn't know that Yahya and Poirier are actually scheduled to throw down in Vancouver.

Oh, if it's in Brazil, there'll be a Gracie in it somewhere.

But I bet they'll stack up tons of good fights there. It's their big entry to a new, large and fertile MMA ground.
