    so far ufc 227 is like a mediocre free UFN card. pretty annoying given the UFC doesn't come to LA often. with room for 1-2 more fights, how can this be saved?

    I'm hearing rumors of: Gustafson vs Rockhold, that would help. any other rumors or ideas?

    -------
    T.J. Dillashaw vs Cody Garbrandt
    Renato Moicano vs Cub Swanson
    Derek Brunson vs Antonio Carlos Junior
    Pedro Munhoz vs Alejandro Perez

    Kyung Ho Kang vs Ricardo Ramos
    Beneil Dariush vs opponent TBA

    Danielle Taylor vs Weili Zhang
    Benito Lopez vs Ricky Simon
    Irene Aldana vs Bethe Correia
    Wuliji Buren vs Bharat Kandare
    J.J. Aldrich vs Polyana Viana

    Not much that you can do with already 3 WMMA fights...
    Rockhold vs Gus sounds really good
    Maybe Masvidal vs The Ponz?

    I could also see them adding Mighty Mouse vs Cejudo, but I don't see that as making that card worth $64.99

    Rockhold/Gus would make the card solid.

    After two top-notch cards in a row (225 and 226), you can't expect a 3rd great card for 227. That would be asking a bit much from the UFC.

    Its not a bad card,

    They were counting on the two fights that aren't official, they'd make this card stellar. (GSP-Diaz/Gus-Luke)

    Beniel fighting a striker would be fun too. Maybe Trinaldo?

    Main Card should look like this:

    UFC 227 - Los Angeles

    GSP x Diaz
    Dillashaw x Garbrandt
    Gustafsson x Rockhold
    Moicano x Swanson
    Brunson x Shoe Face

    Dillashaw Garbrandt II is enough to get my ass heading to a local bar for it.

    You can stream it for free, enjoy a decent FN card while hanging out on Sherdog shitposting with the booooiiis in the PBP thread getting like spammed by the GOAT @Wadtucket. 10/10 experience.

    TJ/Cody, Moicano/Swanson, Brunson/Shoeface, Munoz/Perez are solid fights. Cut out the WMMA/shitbreaks and I'll call it a good card.

    that would certainly help the card a LOT, but I don't think anyone is holding their breath

    I'm fine with that for a PPV. Adding DJ/Cejudo 2 could help the PPV a bit. I'd prefer saving Gus/Rockhold for UFC 228 since that will probably be weak as hell.
