So, about the rematch of Jones vs Gustafsson

When it happen, will probably be a great event/card, and probably Jones vs Gustafsson will be the main event (and another window to UFC expose the MMA to the world)
But who would be in the co-main? And in the other fights of the main card?
For the co-main i would put Barao vs Assunçao, the reason is that Barao (vs Assunçao) can't headline a PPV, they are not names associated with great numbers for the UFC, and so, it's the perfect opportunity to put them to fight with Jone vs Gustafsson being the main reason to buy.
But what about you? What is your opinion for the co-main and the rest of the main-card? Who would you put on it?

Who would waste time trying to decide all the fights on a future card?

The co-main will be Jones x Cormier. Whoever wins gets the title shot.

Haha. Nice.

I can't believe Glover is being overlooked.

About as much as your black belt with quality posts like this.

To ts, it's too soon to tell. Jones hasn't gotten through glover yet. They can always put fights like barao/assuncao on free cards or match them with a flyweight, featherweight or women's title fight to make a ppv though.

Jones/gustafsson will sell its self. I doubt they'll waste another title fight on that card unless they're doing something big (eg. Super Bowl/New Years/ufc 200)

A lot of the times they try to use the co main to setup a new contender.. I wouldn't doubt if we were to see the winner of Davis/rumble paired up with someone on that card. Rashad will be coming back around then too. I imagine Cormier will have solidified his claim for the next shot by then but who knows. Your question requires a lot of speculating lol
