    Nate vs Barboza

    Had to pull a couple out of retired. Also some unranked due to inactivity.

    Nate Diaz vs TJ Grant
    Conor Mcgregor vs BJ Penn
    Yoel Romero vs Gegard Mousasi
    Big Nog vs Stefan Struve/Wanderlei Silva vs Cung Le 2
    Joe Lauzon vs Diego Sanchez/Kelvin Gastelum vs Gunnar Nelson/Thiago Alves

    I think the hardest thing is finding a legit Main Event.

    I'm pretty sure he means guys legitimately not in the top 10.. Grant is injured and Nate is inactive that's the reason they were taken off the top 10

    Just move every fighter one weight class up or one weight class down.
    Instantly unranked.

    Then go make a dream card.



    Oh no WMMA fights as a resuilt


    But honestly, no.
