    How would you book UFC 197? Has to be realistic, let's not have Patrick Cote fighting on Fight Pass etc!

    Co-Main Event
    Demetrious Johnson vs. Henry Cejudo (UFC Flyweight Title) - confirmed

    Roy Nelson vs. Derrick Lewis (rumoured)
    Dustin Poirier vs. Al Iaquinta
    Robert Whittaker vs. Rafael Natal (confirmed)


    FOX SPORTS 1 PRELIMS
    Patrick Cote vs. Rick Story
    Nik Lentz vs. Magomed Mustafaaev
    Erik Perez vs. Rob Font
    Token WMMA fight

    Andre Fili vs. Yair Rodriguez also confirmed. Probably high prelims or main card opener, depending on how much they want to hype Yair.

    Yep, there have been 4 in the past. Not often but still.



    Dunno actually, don't remember reading it but might be?




    Forgot about this, definitely upper prelims or possibly sneaking on the main agreed.
