    Cejudo vs Aldo is ok, Nunes will probably fight Spencer or Megan in the co-main, which is ok I guess. What are a few fights you would like to see added that would actually move your needle? I have a few ideas, not that all these would get added, just 2 or 3:

    Anderson Silva vs Robbie Lawler
    Barboza vs Emmett
    Munhoz vs Vera
    RDA vs Wonderboy
    Moraes vs Cruz

    Silva isn't going down, and Lawler's way too small for MW.

    RDA gets fucked up by Wonderboy, and would be a better option for a Lawler fight.

    Cruz isn't going to fight again, and if he did, he definitely isn't getting Moraes (who would fuck him up)

    Lawler is too small for MW? He has fought there before & now that he's older he's put on more weight. He looked massive in comparison to Colby & Askren. He'll be fine against 44 year old Anderson.

    RDA & Lawler already fought btw.

    Moraes vs Sandhagen would be great. Thought about Ferreira vs Islam but I don't think Islam would fight during ramadan.

    Oh scratch that fight then.

    Maybe Ferreira Vs Iaquinta or someone then.

    I think Thomas Almeida is due back soon so I'd love to see him on the card.

    I don't think that's fair, Fabia has a lot of paramilitary friends in South America.

    It's in Brazil, where it's illegal to hold an mma fight with 2 non-Brazilians.

    I think it's okay if you have a Brazilian in your corner like BJ did against Guida.

    Derrick Lewis vs Matt Schnell. One of the biggest hitters in the sport against one of the smallest chinny dudes. Lolz will be had.

    I know costa has a 100% guaranted title shot but I would like to see him in ufc 250, he has been really inactive since 2017.

    Shouldnt you be getting ready for your big fight this weekend, instead of posting on Sherdog about which fights could be added to 250

    Lawler vs Silva would be interesting in the sense they're both washed
    RDA would be brutal at this point RDA looks like he's been quickly slowing down since the Lee fight.

    Those other 3 matchups would be great and all are FOTN potential.

    KG vs Antonio Carlos JR
    CDF vs Hooker or Felder
    Peirira vs Warley Alves

    Maybe they could do a Mexico/Latin America vs Brazil theme

    Cejudo (C) vs Aldo 135 <- Booked
    Nunes (C) vs Irene Aldana 135 <- Aldana knocked off the next probable contender.
    Barboza vs Yair <- Edson is moving down. The kicks, man.
    Ponzinibbio vs RDA <- No more Dos Anjos vs grapplers
    Marlon Vera vs Pedro Munoz <- Was gonna say Marlon vs Marlon but he's ranked too high.

    Not the best card ever but more riveting than Shogun vs Lil Nog and Werdum vs Oleynick.
