A lot of good fights they can make for a replacement.

Aldo is just one of the most injury prone fighters ever and I doubt they will have him headline a card for a while. I'm kind of hoping for an interm title to peak more fan interest. I like Mendes v Edgar, Lamas v Edgar and of course TKZ vs Edgar fights as headliners, interm title or not.

Does anyone know how long Jung is out for? Maybe they could wait a couple of months and have Edgar vs. KZ to see who fights Aldo when he returns. It would be a pretty sweet fox headliner imo.

i'd love to see Faber vs Edgar at 145, even if Faber has no intentions of staying at that weight

I like the fight as long as its not for a belt or for next shot for the simple fact I don't want Faber fighting for another strap

I had a feeling Aldo was going to pull out and I have the old messages to prove it haha...The fighters "getting hurt" thing is getting out of hand and yes I do think some of them fake an injury to get out of the bout.

Too many fighters now, everyones hungry and losses now send you spiraling down, fans lose interest in you fast, lose money, millions see you lose.
I will say I dont think anyone is afraid to fight but I do think that some of them are afraid to lose.

Aldo doesnt want to fight people that can beat him right now, he wants to build a legacy like Anderson Silva, Frankie would likely lose rounds 1 and maybe 2 but Aldos cardio is shit and Edgar would out score him in the next 3 winning the DEC...Aldo never wanted it...

Didn't mean to leave a swear word in there and I should rephrase and say Aldo's cardio is not as good as Edgars

If they decide to do an interim belt I say no way to Faber. No offense to him but he'd get spanked. He had his chances at Bantamweight already.

They have to keep UFC 153 alive though. First Alan Belcher gets hurt and his match with Vitor gets cancelled. Then in the same day they cancel the main and co-main events. That sucks. They need to keep this event going.

Off the top of my head they could put Lamas against Edgar. And Bonner or Te Huna against Glover.

And when Rampage is ready sick Rashad on his tail and send him into retirement. Just and idea.

As I said in another thread: Lamas vs Edgar makes sense to me.

I wonder if Rebney would release Patricio Pitbull for this opportunity.

why would he release one of his better fighters while still under contract to go to the competition?

I suppose Rebney just learned that lesson the hard way with 'Dudu' losing to Tyson Nam
