I love these Brazilian cards and Aldo/Koch should theoretically draw a sellout simply because it takes place in Brazil and Aldo is the hometown boy. As said above, if they book the Nogs and maybe Wand's return, they'll draw another amazing crowd, the Brazilian talent pool is always sick....but PPV buys is a different story IMO.
Despite Hioki now being out of the running for a shot, I still think that there are several better challengers ahead of Koch to meet Aldo upon his return. Zombie is my #1 Draft pick here and FUCK NO, he is not overrated, he's a damn hoss with crazy submission technique and a resounding overall game. If Siver gets a win over Yagin(whom I really don't get why he's even matched up against), I think he'd be a fun matchup and far superior selling point for a PPV, I'd also push Do Bronx in front of the line ahead of Koch just because his name is more recognizable.... heck, even a Cub rematch or Poirier coming off the loss is more interesting for me. Not to say Koch isn't a good fighter, but name value wise, I just don't see the reasoning behind giving him a fight of this magnitude.
