    I feel like we are about to see the return of a high strung Dana White.

    We had a cancelled PPV, one yesterday that went through on life support with the loss of the hometown star in a top heavy card.

    Now he has to rely on Cain Velasquez who hasn't even fought in over 30 months on ESPN a first ever flagship show. It is a good fight, but having to count on Cain for such a historic night after recent bouts of bad luck has to be leaving him uneasy.

    Looked at the card, and there isn't even another heavyweight on the card in case of a last second pullout to keep Cain/Francis on the card. Heavyweight is the easiest to find a last minute replacement but they still should have had another heavyweight fight on the card.

    Hard to be nervous about something you know will happen.

    I just saw the ad for it while I was re-watching some of the fights from last night and had the same thought

    Maybe we should start a thread about how there's no way Cain is going to make it to the cage to reverse-jinx it

    I'll be disappointed if the main event falls through but I'll probably still tune in for Caceres/Gracie

    Dana is probably already calling various HWs, telling them to stay ready.

    Pretty sure he was nervous about Cain before the Whittaker fiasco.

    We all know Cain is already injured and Dana is hiding it till the event starts to bump views up.

    He doesn't really care at this point. He already conned someone into buying the dead horse from him, he's just tagging along for the pussy now.

    I agree. They should have sprung for a Mark Hunt, JDS or even a Soa Palelei.
