    Yep thats where having 50 cards a year hurts you. I feel like the weak card problem has gotten worse than it was before the WEC and strikeforce merger which is absurd considering 4 new weight classes and a whole bunch of elite fighters joined the organization as a result. The UFC made this problem themselves by over booking the amount of events.

    Or Weidman could have just gotten hurt.
    I'm the biggest Weidman mark on here so I'd say he'd never do that but you never know with the shady shit that goes on these days.

    However, if they wanted him on the 4th of July card they would've moved the fight beforehand and probably wouldn't scratch have scratched Vitor because he should be off the juice by then.

    Also, this absolutely destroys the memorial day weekend card which is one of the top 5 biggest cards of the year.

    173 is an extremely weak card without this fight. I doubt they would to put on a card two months later.

    They like soccer and college football here. I get looked at like a crazy person when I say I like baseball and the only know MMA as UFC. This is just the people I experienced. I'm as far north in Miami as you get, literally two blocks from the border so maybe more southern parts it is different.

    Diaz coming back for who? Better not be Hendricks. If it is then the long anticipated Dana vs Tito fight should be the co main.

    What's Lawler's ETR after that five rounder? As much as that's the bout to book, I wonder if they just won't be able to match them up due to Lawler's medical plus required full training camp...

    I wouldn't be surprised to see Dana make that fight and promise the winner a title shot.
