Diego-Alves is not yet formally confirmed (so far as I know) but everything I've read says it is pretty much going to happen there.
To answer your question - huge. MMA just got sanctioned in Illinois recently and this will be the UFC's first ever event in Chicago. With Silva headlining and two top-7 WW's in the world fighting in a co-main event, it will be a huge
event. It could well break various gate and attendance records; it'll at least test them.
I live in KC, about 8 hours away from Chicago, and will be driving in to see this card. My first-ever live UFC event. I am fired up
lol yah I think I m looking at an 8-10 hour drive from Toronto myself this will be my third and I m excited it will live up to all your expectations and more
