This one's rather easy for me. Number 1 by a landslide, followed by 3 then 2.

What you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in the playground is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no props, and may the mods have mercy on your soul.

All three cards look great but ultimately it was between card 1 and card 2. I went with card 2 though. The Makdessi vs Stout bout is what gave it that little extra boost. Awesome, awesome fight that makes a lot of sense right now. I'd love to see it.

The Jones vs Jackson card all the way.

As for the main events, I'd rather see Melendez vs. Edgar and im not seein how Mir beats Cain.

Thanks for answering, guys. I tried to make match-ups that would be exciting but not too far off from the current ranking of each fighter. I will admit though that I reached out for some of these fights, such as Valesquez/Mir. It wouldn't happen at the moment, but if it did, I'm sure fans would be excited about it. I personally chose card two, because most of the fighters I added to the card are almost always exciting. It had more of the eye catching fights, and if this event really did end up being a PPV I have almost no doubt that it would satisfy both hardcore and mainstream fans.

They are all interesting cards. I would go with card 1, then card 3, but would love to pick a few matches from each card to make one super event. I would love to see Koscheck get KTFO by Ellenberger.
