Aldo/Mendes with JDS co main is fine for a reg event in Brazil but not a 40k stadium.

I don't think they are. I think they're going to attempt to.

I highly doubt they would only have Aldo as their star power...vitor vs Weidman would be the biggest hit...Vitor is the biggest star in Brasil compared to the rest of the active fighters

Mendes gets screwed bad if this is the case

The champ pulls out, his fight gets pushed back and then he has to go back to Brazil

Hope he pulls it off and spoils everything

I do not disagree in the slightest. I just think that's where they're going with this.

The one argument for Vitor/Weidman is that for the late 2014---early part of 2015, the PPV picture is friggin loaded. You're almost guaranteed at this point to get Ronda/Gina in December/Jan, Pettis/Gil is in Dec, Hendricks will be back in Jan, Silva is back in January, Cain is in November and could turn around for March or April. Mighty Mouse and TJ will be back into rotation in December or Jan. Jones/Gus winner vs DC can happen in April. Vitor/Weidman may fill in right on time in October IF Weidman is healthy. I just don't know if he will be.

Does Zuffa even have the power to stack cards anymore? They've had to dilute things to keep up with the dozens of cards. Plus think about injuries. If they stack things for a Brazil card, they're screwing themselves for future cards trying to get back to normal.

Maybe they can have a sacrificial lamb card right after to place their worst draws, and the cards right after can be average again.

Why don't they hold it at Maracanaco? Don't they believe in their product?

Maybe the UFC figures that the way to make money is through big gates since ppv buys are decreasing.
