Wasn't JDS v Overeem originally scheduled for the last Van card?

As a Canadian, I hate it when they fill the entire card with Canadians... Don't get me wrong, I love 3-4 on the card but when 10/12 fights have a Canadian it makes for too many meaningless fights... Ive attended UFC 129, 149, and 161... 149 and 161 weren't very good for this very reason.... The loudest the crowd got at 161 was when Roland Delorme was fighting!! That is absolutely absurd... The prelims at 161 only had 1 fight with any significance (Woodley vs Sheilds). The prelims at 149 literally had no significant fights.

I've talked to people from England and Australia about this and they agree... We like to see a few of our Country men fight but more so just want to see great fights and don't care if the card is full of our home fighters

Demetrious Johnson (c) vs. Ali Bagautinov
Junior dos Santos vs. Alistair Overeem
Benson Henderson vs. Rustam Khabilov


The undercard is always going to be stacked with local fighters who would rather fight close to home, that's just the way things are.

I think it will be a wbw title fight headlining rather than Mighty Mouse as I can't see him headlining even though that's a better option. The choices kind of suck seeing this will be my first live event.

Why do you keep listing JDS fighting Overeem??

He's fighting at the UFC 173...

This card is going to be shit gauranteed.

It was JDS vs Brock if I remember correctly. Brock would eventually pull out of the fight and be replaced by Carwin.
