    Main Event:

    Jon Jones vs. Winner of Gus/Rumble.

    Co-Main Event:

    Jose Aldo vs. Conor McGregor.

    Main Card:

    CM Punk vs. Cathal Pendred.
    Donald Cerrone vs. Khabib Nurmagomedov.
    Cro Cop vs. Gonzaga II.

    How much do you think this card would do? Seems like a possibility.

    Cro Cop vs Gonzaga was announced in Poland, and it's not a very intriguing fight, CM Punk vs Cathal would taint this card badly.

    They're not putting Aldo-McGregor in the co-main event.

    No way they make Aldo vs McG as a co main event.

    Make Aldo/McGregor it's own card. Cerrone/Nurmagomedov could easily co-main a Jones card.

    Aldo v. Mcgregor gets its own card.

    Jones v. ... will have the Flyweight title or maybe the Welterweight title fight. If Rory gets the shot and Gus beats Rumble I think they put both fights on the same card in Canada.

    No way in hell that Aldo/McGregor is anything other than a main event.

    A very realistic scenario is McGregor/Aldo plus CM Punk in May with Jon Jones/#1 contender plus Cerrone/Khabib in June

    but yea... McGregor/Aldo is probably going to be the biggest draw below the 185 weight class in 2015 so don't see UFC wasting its drawing power with another big draw
