Wow

First non title scheduled fight in the last two years
Without having to cover a injury


curious

Cause bones or Cormier vs gus
Then also Hendricks vs Lawler will happen too

I got a lot of thinking to do
Already going to 181 and 182 Vegas
Wasn't planning on 183. Dam.
I wanna see this fight live badly

Two of my favorites. Going to have to root for the Spider though.

Just hope, nobody gets injured before it is to happen.

Both should be ok, neither of them are known for pulling out due to injury.

If Anderson is still Anderson and Father Time hasn't caught him; Nick's style is perfect for another highlight to add to Anderson's already crazy highlight reel. With the expection Weidman, everyone has paid the price for trying to strike with Andersonn. I could see this going much like Anderson/Franklin II

If anyone pulls out late. This could be a cluster fuck

At 185.

Now. To face either guy for a main event.
Not many guys.
Could say Machida

Might look eerily similar to this.

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.
