Predict The Main Event For UFC on FOX 13 in Phoenix.

Since the rumored Cub Swanson vs. Frankie Edgar fight is a no go, debunked by Cub Swanson himself on twitter, who do you think will main event the fight card for the end of the year? Machida has made it clear in interviews he wants to fight Luke Rockhold when he returns but I think that fight makes more sense on UFC 179 or headlining a Brazil Fight Night card.

I think Rumble Johnson is an option. Alistair Overeem (if he beats Rothwell) could take on the winner of JDS/Stipe as a headliner? I wouldn't be opposed to TJ Dillashaw defending his title again after he beats Barao for the second time. We've also got Hector Lombard looking to make his return. Bendo is possible for the card, he's an AZ native and I'm sure is going to make a push to be on it.

So what matchup are you guys predicting for the Main Event, and hell, the entire 4 fight main card in general?

Bendo vs. Cerrone 3 as a number one contender fight if Bendo beats RDA would be very interesting but Cerrone will need a fight in between I think (don't believe the Alvarez rumors personally, they'd be promoting the shit out of it already.)

WHo knows, they could go JDS/Stipe if it doesnt happen in Nov, they could go Frankie/Cub, they could go Hendricks/Lawler and do a big title fight.

Eddie/Cowboy or Eddie/Bendo if they sign Eddie and he doesnt end up on 178. MM could turn around if he wins in a few weeks and fight FUn Size/Formiga winner.

McGregor could beat Dustin at 178 and turn around to fight someone like Cub or edgar on Fox in Dec.

Lawler vs Hendricks will most likely headline UFC 182.

Nate Diaz and Cerrone (unless he is on medical suspension), Thomson or Henderson.
Nate will be training because his brother is getting ready for a fight too. He will be ready to come back.

The only title fights that the UFC usually puts on FOX are lower weight class ones so I doubt Hendricks/Lawler is free. I think Bendo fights Myles Jury after each of them beat RDA and Gomi, and I don't think that's headliner quality, but hey. You never know.

Also, do you think the UFC would really use Eddie Alvarez as a headliner in his first fight in the Octagon? Or put him on a few main cards first to get him some exposure?

Since Cub is waiting for a titleshot, maybe KZ vs Edgar.
Rumble vs winner of Bader vs OSP.

Rumble vs Bader/OSP makes sense but can it headline big FOX? Eh, probably. I want KZ to fight Bermudez though.
