Nate vs. Lawler seems to be what Dana has on his mind.

And it is so silly, but I'm okay with it.
Give Nate another big payday, probably give Lawler's brain a rest for one fight. I mean, Lawler has been in WARS lately, time for an easier fight.

Plus, the style matchup seems like one that is destined to be fireworks.

There's still several options. But I don't think Rousey will be Tate's 1st challenge. Call me crazy but I think Nunes gets it. I wouldn't be shock if they went with a Triple Title Event.

Conor McGregor vs Frankie Edgar (FW Title Main Event)
Robbie Lawlor vs Nate Diaz (WW Title Bout Co-Main)
Miesha Tate vs Amanda Nunes (WBW Title)
Holly Holm vs Cat Zingano
Johnny Hendricks vs Tyron Woodley
Anderson Silva vs ?
Alexander Gustaffson vs Glover Texiera

That's just a few ideas that could be possible.


I'll leave GSP off the equation for now. Dude has to come out of retirement for me to consider this.

I like this and if Anderson were to fight Machida not that I think it will happen but that would be one terrific card.

Did you see GSP sitting near the octagon last fight? I really think he was gunna call out McG had McG won. Also Rory said this:

“From what we’ve talked about, he’s not coming back for the belt. He’s coming back for the odd fight I think that interests him”

The crowd immediately erupted in cheers as MacDonald realized what he had just done. He began to attempt to contain the damage, saying:

“If… If he comes back…. Okay, keep it in your pants. I don’t know if he’s coming back. But as far as I know, if he does I think he’s more interested in super-fights and whatnot.”

I did see him cageside but I didn't read into it. It was a huge PPV, probably 1.2-1.3 million PPV buys is a ballpark guess but I didn't hear the Rory comments. If that's true and he comes back and fights Anderson I'm all down for that. I was hoping 3 Title fights but 2 and GSP/Anderson is a far tradeoff and I'd expect that to do over 1.5 million w/o batting an eye.

I approve.

lol I thought 200 was going to be such a flop but props to the UFC they made good on their promise and are about to deliver if not the greatest ? then at least one of the greatest cards of all time on paper. Now if this card turns out as good as it looks on paper there are going to be a lot of happy fans on the playground
