    What does your ideal UFC 222 card look like? It's in Vegas so I'm expecting/hoping for a big show along these lines:

    UFC 222
    Conor McGregor vs Tony Ferguson
    Max Holloway vs Frankie Edgar
    Cain Velasquez vs Alexander Volkov
    Dustin Poirier vs Kevin Lee
    Cat Zingano vs Ketlen Vieira*

    *Only because I know WME would never construct a ppv without Wmma & it's already booked

    Conor will never fight in the UFC again.

    Ferguson vs. Khabib or Alvarez are more realistic. Other fights sound great, my guess is Max vs. Frankie headlines and theres some WMMA title fight nobody gives a fuck about as co.

    Tony will sit out a while hoping for Mcgregor before he accepts anyone else.

    I like it. Maybe have Werdum or Hunt ready if/when Cain pulls out?

    Love the TJ/DJ fight, forgot about that one! Cody had surgery recently so I didn't consider him. Altho it could've been minor I was too lazy to look it up haha

    I feel Hunt will be on 221 in Perth vs Blaydes.

    I think they are keeping Werdum on ice in case Ngannou pulls out. Or if the 220 main event ends quickly, HW Champ vs Werdum could headline another pic in April/May.

    I think Werdum is getting a title shot. UFC 220 is just 5 weeks away, winner maybe ready for quick turn around in April/May

    If Conny doesn't fight in the ufc again, then Tony fights Khabib/Barboza winner in April/May. And 222 looks like:

    TJ Dillashaw vs Mouse Johnson
    Max Holloway vs Frankie Edgar
    Cain Velasquez vs Alexander Volkov
    Dustin Poirier vs Kevin Lee
    Cat Zingano vs Ketlen Vieira*

    I like that too, but it’s getting hard to believe that Cain can actually stay injury free long enough to fight.

    Nah give TBD a chance. He always gets called up but never gets a fight.

    He stays ready so he won’t have to get ready.

    Yeah although he is apparently back to training although you're right, it's hard to believe he'll go more than a couple months without injury
