    That would mean UFC 266 would have title defenses from Ngannou, Jan, AND Volkanovski.

    265 has Nunes vs Pena (LOL).

    Makes sense. August would be too hot for Black Beast's balls. September weather is much cooler

    Understandable, fitting 2 or 3 fights per year into your schedule must be hard.

    Maybe they can pay Usman(vs Colby) or Nick Diaz(vs Lawler?) to beef up the ppv buys. Maybe pay Rose & Shevy to defend their belts on the first ever 3 WMMA title-fight card?

    They'll probably just go with Nunes/Pena, Aldo/Munhoz, & Chiesa/Luque, which isnt great because Nunes has consistently drawn just 100k ppv buys as the main attraction; Pennington/Shevy rematch/Spencer.

    Respect to Nunes, but I bet Dana doesn’t think she can carry a PPV by herself. I bet they move the Jan fight up from UFC 266 to UFC 265.

    Nobody should have any problem with this, that would make Ngannou second fight in the year which should be the standard.

    That 265 card is rumored to be in Houston...Hard pass if Nunes/Pena is the main event

    They should just make Nunes v Pena a fight night lmao. Would get a max of 80k PPV buys.

    If there is no Lewis fighting for the belt in his hometown, they might do Houston for a later date.

    Crazy how many people think Francis is easily going to beat Lewis. In case you forgot, Lewis is pretty good at Knocking people the fuck out also. I see this fight 50/50.
