Impossible. Nice idea though, free Conor. I see what you are doing here.

Frankly I don't think Conor/Poirer (sp?) deserve co main but it wouldn't surprise me
draw or not, if either guy wins he's getting a title shot. Mizugaki was already one fight away from a title. too bad he had to fight Cruz, big fan of the ***, but hopefully he can make it interesting and not lose too much steam from the fanbase.

i think card should probably look like

Jones v Gus
Cruz v Mizugaki
*Place holder for Tarc and Rory if signed
Nunes vs Cat
Goat v Poirier
Kennedy v Romero

that's a good feeling to have. although the people would not be pleased with this i think.

Kennedy vs Romero will probably take that role. And Goat and Poirier will open up the PPV Show

So you think main card goes

GOAT v Diamond
Cat v Nunes
GSPlite v Saff
Cruz v Mizugaki
Pokes v Gus
?
if so
mmm. Possible. But you agree GOAT is the second biggest draw here though right?

Doesn't matter where it's at, that fights the REAL main event.

Those using tongue-in-cheek are just protecting their ego, keeping the 'i was joking' excuse when the derailing occurs.

Remember Jones' rep evolution on sherdog since '10? cmon bro, just enjoy the ride.

It absolutely will be the Co-Main; the GOAT, the trash talk, the fight is fun. No way they don't capitalize on him, right now.

But my God what a show.
