    Just let that sink in for a moment. I therefore propose the question is if this is the finalized card for 208, is it the worst PPV card the UFC has produced (prior to any injuries occurring) in the past few years?

    Aldo vs Holloway not happening thats for sure
    Maybe Woodley vs WB 2, Aldo vs Khabib, or Khabib vs Ferguson

    They know they don't have to stack the card cause they have a must see WMMA main event.

    After being 2-1 with 2 fights at LHW he's fighting a top 3 fighter. Someone's been praying to the wrong guy. All those Brazilians fighting on fight pass thanking Jesus should consider converting to Jehovah.

    Never claimed he was bad, but what the heck has he done to co-main event a fight night, yet alone a PPV?

    This card needs Woodley/WB II or Bisping/Romro to save it. I doubt Khabib or Tony are going to be on this card sadly.

    Cannonier's last performance was awesome. Loved it. He out Hulked the Hulk.

    I think he has potential for sure, but to co-main event a PPV with an already highly lackluster potential main event is just bad.

    The UFC needs either a champion or a star to step forward. It's kind of exciting in a way, but I expect to be let down. Maybe this will end up on FS1.

    My only MMA loving friend loves him because Joos. Maybe they are trying to get the black Jewish audience that's getting tired of Amare Stoudemire and needs a new face to cheer for

    He's co-maining with Glover though so it's still a awesome fight.

    I just found out Aldo/Holloway isn't happening though which sucks. I remember Dana was pushing for it.

    Keep in mind... he's not young. He's 32 years old and works a full-time job. I'm not really sure if that qualifies as a prospect.
