according to Scott Coker (via MMA Fighting) the promotion is planning a major mega-show for January of next year that could feature an entire main card of championship fights. |
"We're looking at a show in January with Daniel Cormier, Luke Rockhold and Gilbert Melendez, and don't be surprised to see Ronda Rousey and Nate Marquardt as well."
The chances of that coming to fruition seem slim but even if they manage to get two of the five, that would have to be considered a success.
Melendez believes he'll be ready by then, hopefully recovered from his recent shoulder injury.
"My shoulder is getting better every day. Last week there was great deal of improvement. Hopefully I can start hard training in three weeks. I hope to be able to fight in January. I think I'll be on track, but it's not etched in stone."
Rockhold will be ready for sure, and the rest are healthy and simply awaiting their next assignments.
