    That's how you salvage the card.

    To induce TJ, there should already be a signed bout agreement by DJ and TJ to fight for the manlet strap in the first half of 2018. Win or lose to Rivera, TJ gets a shot at DJ.

    Those matchups don't salvage the card; they weigh it down.

    I hope this is true and I hope Woodley twist Colby's cap back.

    This is dependent on how damaged TJ was at 217. I say just go ahead and do TJ vs MM. Woodley vs Colby is a snoozer but if they can get cyborg on there too it'll do ok.

    Was thinking the same thing earlier whilst looking at the rankings. No other fights make sense.

    TJ's a great fighter, but there's nothing about Rivera-TJ that excites as much as TJ-Cruz 2 or TJ-MM or TJ-CoGar 2. I like Rivera as a fighter, and he may be ready for a shot at the champion very soon, but I don't think he's ready yet.

    Relative to what card looks like now, it would elevate it to 120,000 PPV buys/average. Now it's a bad Fight Night card

    No, they won´t make TJ vs Rivera, the best way to sell DJ vs TJ is if TJ still has a belt, and not coming from a loss.

    About Woodley, who cares...

    TJ's wife is due around that time. He's not going to be going into training cam till after his kids born.

    TJ's wife is giving birth around that time and it's not worth it for him to fight around that time

    Doubt it. I'd watch them, but I was going to watch the event anyway.

    I like these match-ups. Was hoping DJ would step up and save the card against TJ. But that isn't going to happen. Woodley - Covington would be very interesting.

    Honestly, mods should enforce that OP's start their fantasy fight threads with "speculation" or "Fantasy" in the title. I bet many people were fooled to believe this was real.

    Same lol. I'd believe it when I see it.

    My guess is Tyron's statement that "we might see him fight this year" was pure marketing by him -- a negotiation tactic. Tyron probably told the UFC he'd fight at UFC 219 if it was against GSP, or that he'd fight for 5 million dollars. He's probably making that statement to stir up some interest and get himself a better deal.
