    UFC 217 is already stacked, but has only 10 fights booked. Will we see more big fights added or is this the full card? Overeem vs ngannou would round out a magnificent main card!!! Jose Aldo looks to be booked for Dec.

    This link alludes to one more big fight to come.

    I think wme is going to pull a wwe, secretly weigh in rockhold and woodley and then have two octagons gsp and bisping walk out to find rockhold and woodley and they run two parallel fights that the fans actually want

    I'm worried about the Gsp and Bisping fight being a let down. If it's not this should be a great card.

    The graphic they showed this weekend listed a TBD vs TBD fight for the main card still. There are a lot of cool options, but my guess would be Jacare vs Weidman.

    *Card subject to change.

    Let's hope no injuries or failed drug tests.

    I thought it was gonna be like a tag team thing... Then Lawler and Weidman run out from underneath the octagon and start taking steel chairs to everyone. Big John catches a flash KO. Finally Chuck Liddell sprints down from back stage to restore order, but Dana drops him with a pipe.

    With 3 championship fights (all of which have the potential to go the distance), I don't know if UFC is going to add any more fights to the card.

    I'm not complaining if they did add more fights, I'm just saying if all 3 fights go the distance, when you add all the Buffer shenanigans, walk-outs, "Harley Davidson Prep Point" vaseline station, it's 2 hours right there.

    Wonderboy/Masvidal is prolly going the distance, and you know Hendricks is going to grind down for dear life to try and eke out a decision. Throw in a Rogan freakout promo about "what a monster Aldo is and how Lamas is world-class, and their rematch on the next PPV is a can't miss, once in a lifetime experience we've been waiting for", and that's another hour right there.

    I will still watch and enjoy though :)

    The broadcast Saturday showed:

    Bisping vs GSP
    Cody vs TJ
    Joanna vs Rose
    TBD vs TBD
    Masvidal vs Thompson

    If it's better than Mas/Thompson I would guess Gust/Volkan or Reem/Ngannou. Weidman/Jacare would be nice but I believe Jacare won't be ready until December. Khabib/Barboza would be #1 awesome.

    Card order does not mean the fight has to be better.

    I hope they just put random crap to round it off, already a more than stacked card, if they stack it even more it will just hurt the rest of the cards for the year.
