    I mean they had Conor, Stipe, Lawler, Jones, Cormier, Weidman, Rousey, Silva, Lesnar, Cain, JDS on previous cards.

    They should cancel it unless they have stipe fighting Cain & holm vs cyborg or Mcgregor agrees to fight ferguson then it really should be canned.

    Not sure considering they haven't announced main and co-main yet. There are some good fights on there already though. Magny and Condit. Cruz and Rivera. Saki and Rountree.

    Conor is a boxer. JDS, Jones and Brock pissed hot. Ronda retired. Cain doesn't fight. There's over half of your list.

    219 OPTIONS
    **Green = Possible
    **Yellow = Possible but unlikely.
    **Red = Won't Happen


    Stipe/Cain - Contract trouble plus Cain doesn't seem ready to return.

    Cormier/Volkan = Cormier won't return till 2018 under doctors orders.
    Bisping/GSP = Already scheduled
    Woodley - No opponent plus will not return till 2018

    Conor/Ferguson = Possible I guess but very unlikely
    Holloway/Edgar - Already scheduled
    Garbrandt/Dillashaw - Already scheduled
    Demetrious = Just fought, not returning till 2018


    Cyborg/Holm = Possible but Cyborg not happy with contract
    Nunes/Pennington - Very possible though probably not strong enough to main
    Jędrzejczyk/Namajunas - Already scheuled

    Anyone know how long Ferg's medical suspension is? If he got a suspension at all? That'd be a sneaky, but legit way to get in the third Diaz fight for Conor lol

    I'm sure they will come up with something. Some cards that look weak on paper turn out to be awesome.

    This is the card so far, its ok for a free Fight Night card in Montana or Albama. They need at least 3 very good fights on it, and 2 must be title fights, and not nonsense titles like Mouse and Nunes.

    Conor vs Tony
    Stipe vs Cain
    that might satisfy me more.

    Not looking so hot so far. I'm excited for the Condit return and I have a crush on Cynthia but it's crap right now. They would need some pretty big additions to make it NYE worthy.

    I don't see him fighting until St. Patty's Day, if he fights at all.

    He's also never defended a title. ZING.

    **I don't think UFC 219 even has a main event yet, lol. Like the Condit-Magny & Saki Rountree bouts but this NYE card needs a strong main event

    They need a xmas bonus so the UFC can really put the screws on the entertainment opposition in the festive season.

    Conor vs. Tony/Nate
    Cyborg vs. Holm
    Aldo vs. Lamas
    Rockhold vs. Romero
    Weidman vs. Jacare
    Platinum Perry vs. Usman
    Latifi vs. OSP

    could all help to make this a proper banger of a card ...

    Why the fuck shertards have Cain in title picture? First of all he said he's not fighting again in 2017, he also said he COULD fight in 2018, he doesn't even know if that's 100%

    [​IMG]

    Also he won ONE fight in last 4 years and was against TRAVIS BROWNE who is on 4 or 5 lose streak, stop acting like he deserves a shot over Overeem and Werdum bunch of bias stupid patriots
