UFC 176 might not happen at this point, but ticket sales for the Staples Center hosted event have been strong.

It's hard to tell what they will do because it's hard to imagine what they can do.

were 26 days out. Not a lot of time. Might need a HW fight where weight cuts are a non issue, there are a lot of unbooked HWs but it's hard to imagine any of them being booked for this that would be appropriate to headline.

I can't think of a fight worth un-postponing it for since I'd assume they've already checked out their possibilities before going through with postponing it.

6 FNs total in August & September, just pad those cards with a fight from 176, change 177 to 176 & change 178 to 177. Bam!

Telling 22 fighters scheduled for 8/30's UFC 177 to un-book plans and be ready to fight 8/2 instead (Sparring time remaining would go from 7 weeks to 3). Not sure I'd want to see how many of the 22 fighters would end up declining or pulling out shortly after because of it. Not a good domino effect! I like adding 176 fights to current cards though.

Noooooooooo dont change their schedules. keep it on the same date. just change the numbers of the ppvs on the posters. 177 is now 176 but on august 30th. 178 is 177, but still sept 27th

the only fights im saying should be moved are those on the august 2nd (original 176) date & move them to other cards after that date
