    Aldo/McGregor
    Weidman/Rockhold

    If it's not the best, it's definitely up there. Any other good ones? 187 originally had Jones/Rumble and Weidman/Vitor.

    For some reason, I just really don't care about the Weidman/Rockhold fight. Aldo/McGregor should be fun though.

    Either are better than UFC 194

    Yes

    Weidman/Luke is one of the top 3 fights to make in all of mma and its co main event.

    Brock/Mir was cool but GSP/Alves wasnt great.

    Not the best, I guess because weidman and rockhold seem similar fighters in a weird way. Jacare or Romero would've been more exciting.

    Chuck and Wanderlei were both going into that fight on two-fight losing streaks.

    Depends on personal preferences but I honestly am not too into these matchups unless Rockhold smokes Weidman. I don't really like any of these fighters so it's not really a card I have personal interest in. Great fights and will be watching but it's not like Arlovski is in them or anything

    Ummm who cares? Those are 2 of the biggest names of all time in a fight that was yeeeears in the making. It also defined the Pride vs UFC rivalry. Luke vs Weidman is a solid fight but has nowhere near the importance tied to it

    It is a great East Coast vs West Coast fight. I simply cannot wait.

    To me, Weidman/Rockhold is more interesting than McGregor/Aldo - its as good a MW fight as there's ever been.

    Its like the Fedor/CC of MW fights - two guys on a tear in their primes with amazing complimentary styles for the title.

    Its going to be an epic card

    Meh

    Can never get hyped for Weidman fights. He's basically a Johny Hendricks to me.

    Are you kidding me? BJ Penn vs Kenny fucking Florian? Lol Weidman Rockhold and Conor-McGregor are way better than that. And GSP-Alves isn't as good as either of 194's title fights either

    I definitely think this very well could be the best main/co-main in history

    Jacare vs Romero to me is the fight of the year. Hopefully it will live up to the expectation. Both guys are genetic beasts. I can see both beating Weidman (especially Romero).

    Yes. Hell of the night. On paper the best card ever. 3 top fights, six top 10 fighters.

    UFC 146 was originally JDS vs Reem for title and Cain vs Mir for #1 contender.

    UFC 129 St Pierre vs Shields and Aldo vs Hominick

    UFC 139 Shogun vs Henderson and Wanderlei vs Cung Le


    Idk if any of those were more stacked but they definitely compete with 194 IMO
