    If the UFC is going to stack the card and try to make this the card of the year what is their best option for the co-main event?

    TJ/Barao, even though Barao doesn't deserve it. I would still like to see how a second fight plays out.

    I have a feeling that this fight just moved into the main event of UFC 177 due to Jones/Gus II

    If Lawler wins, is he going to want another quick turn around even if it is for the title?? Also, I dont even think Hendricks will be ready by August. You never know but I really dont see that happening until October or November

    I think Dillashaw vs Assuncao headlines 177. No idea what will co main with Jones vs Gus II

    Has that been announced? (TJ Vs Assuncao).

    Its the logical choice of course but I have a feeling Barao got promised a rematch if he lost against TJ.

    I'd also like to see a big time MW fight Jacare/Rockhold/Kennedy/Mousasi

    Yeah. Only if he's ready. I know he was hoping to return more into late September but i heard he's healing up really well. So who knows.

    Maybe the Hendricks fight even co-headlines. There's a lot of choices depending on how big they want to go.

    Now that Reem is at Jackson he may even be on the card with him. Greg wants his guys to be on the same card because he doesn't want to travel and the UFC is pretty accommodating. It wouldn't be surprised if the main card has a big name or two from Jackson's.

    Reem does make sense as long as Zuffa doesnt grant his wish of being on the Japan card.

    Since Jackson will be there, they could do Tim Kennedy vs Mousasi/Jacare/Rockhold

    Rory vs Tarec could be an option... whether Rory beats Tyron or not.

    Could throw a fight like Stipe/Overeem on there depending on how long JDS is out. I don't think they'd go the BW Title route, they need to save those title fights for Fox cards or to headline PPVs with their lack of current guys who can draw in a non-title fight.

    Ronda likes playing second fiddle to these big cards. I could see her asking to fight on the card.
