Right now everything is in a flux
No star power
Jones and Cain are hurt.
Everyone is booked.

Evans vs Cormier will probably be the main event of UFC 170

With a stacked card to make up for the loss title
Jones has fucked over Vegas now twice.

I think gsp vs Hendricks will be in Dallas

With Jones vs texeira headlining possible Canada ppv in April.

I'm booked for Vegas Feb. But with that main event
I will definitely cancel and go to Dallas in march instead

At this point I would be shocked if Evans vs Cormier
Isn't the headliner of 170

I don't see how not wanting to go into training camp with a bad foot is "fucking over Vegas" exactly. Especially when reports are saying Jones said he would be able to fight, but the UFC didnt want to rush him.

I think you're on to something here with Evans vs Cormier.

Demetrius Johnson vs Benavidez- Fox 9 card on Dec.14th
Renan Barao vs Cruz- UFC 169 on Feb. 1st
Aldo vs Lamas- UFC 169 on Feb 1st
Pettis- Injured (Torn PCL unknown return date)
GSP- Taking some time off (Won't be back in the octagon for either UFC 170 or 171)
Anderson Silva- UFC 168on Dec 28th
Jon Jones- Injured (Already scratched from the UFC 170 Main Event slot)
Cain Velasquez- Injured (Unknown return date)

UFC 170 is Feb 22nd (About 3 months from now)
UFC 171 is March 15th (About 4 months from now)


Here's a couple possible scenarios-
1)Move one of the Title defenses from UFC 169 to UFC 170 (probably Barao vs Cruz) and Cormier vs Evans at UFC 171 in Dallas.
2)UFC 168 is the New Year event so that won't get touched.
3)Maybe Cain could make it back in time for UFC 171 in Dallas vs Werdum.
4)Johnson vs Benavidez Winner defend Title at UFC 171 on only 3 month break? Doubtful.
5)Hendricks vs Lawler Headline UFC 171 in Dallas.

I'm almost thinking the most likely outcome will be Barao vs Cruz at UFC 170 with Cormier vs Evans as a Co-Main or
have Cormier vs Evans Headline UFC 171 in Dallas. I just don't think UFC 170 in Vegas will go without a Title defense.
The UFC better figure this out pretty quick. Those cards are gonna start filling up quickly.

He already said on record that he wanted to fight at 170
Between now and say 171 in march. Do you honestly think three weeks is going to make a difference

I was thinking the same.
But tickets just went on sale wed. And they are promoting both title fights. It would be fucked up for the UFC to make fans think two title for a week or so buying tickets just to yank a title away. I do agree. I do think your right
About Lawler vs Hendricks. Dana says he has a date for the gsp rematch. Dallas is Hendricks backyard.

Rumor is gsp rematch in Vegas may
