Aldo vs. Edgar was a dream fight, a superfight we have been waiting for.
Rampages vs. Glover was going to be fireworks....
sucks that page is injured, but im glad he didnt take the fight... He fought his last fight against Bader injured, I dont want to see that again.

I know Dana White did say that Machida has to fight again before getting a title shot, and Machida wanted to fight in Brazil. However, Glover recently said that he would like to avoid fighting Machida.
Rashad did say that he would like to fight before the year is done, so now is his opportunity.
Vera was pretty banged up in his last fight, but he may step in for the UFC again.
Shogun already turned down Glover, on the last Brazil card... they even offered it for the fox card and he wouldnt accept...
He also has a fight with goose coming up in December... although he could easily take both fights imo... doubt it regardless.
While Vera is very exciting and has the technical muay thai and grittiness to make it a great fight... Evans is the much better option. He is a bigger draw and may be more capable of saving the card... financially... same could be said of Sonnen.

Oh wait, I forgot, Rampage cannot be injured...
He should have fought like he did against Bader... And get called out by you for making excuses for the loss...

Bonnar would also be great for that fight. It would make a great Co-main... for any PPV imo...
But the problem still remains about replacing Aldo-Edgar for the main event. That would have been a decent draw...
One of the few ways the UFC may be able to completely save the card is to bring in a big name like Evans or Sonnen.
Id love to see Mousasi vs. Glover... but we all know how likely that is.
