    Which 3 fights should accompany the 2 great title fights on ppv? And who headlines the prelims? There are a ton of great options. I would prefer:

    Stipe vs Cormier
    Holloway vs Ortega
    Ngannou vs Lewis
    Hall vs Costa
    Pettis vs Chiesa

    Assuncao vs Font
    Griffin vs Millender
    Perry vs Medeiros
    Saki vs Roundtree

    Hooker vs Burns
    Moyle Whitmire

    I'd trade Assoncao and Font with Costa and Hall.

    I imagine we'll get at least one more fight.

    Yeah I could see that. Assuncao is very highly ranked and Font is very exciting.

    Main card needs more WMMA.

    Chances on sherdog are you're being ironic but at least one WMMA could be added to the card. Not necessarily the main card, I doubt they'll come up with a big time match-up that spontaneously.

    Apart from that, I don't think Assuncao vs Font is attractive enough as an FS1 match-up. Sure, it's a high ranked fight, but Assuncao hasn't been to exciting as of late. Maybe they should put that one on the main card that's stacked enough already and put Hall vs Costa into the prelims. That would also make sense ranking-wise.

    I’d put Perry/Yancy as the fight pass headliner and Hooker/Durinho on the FS1 card

    I dont see Perry being on the main card after losing 2 in a row. Just lost to Max Griffin so he should be below that bout for sure.
