    Looks like 8 to me.

    Go tweet Dana about this and see what he says.

    Because RDA,Mac & Holm purse money will take up about 75% of the payroll? I really have no clue

    Don't worry. They'll fill it out with guys you've never heard of. Maybe a couple soccer moms, if we're lucky.

    That's 8. It's 10 if you include the 2 rumored fights of Miranda/Magrao and Latifi/Villante. BJ Penn would have made it 11.

    Since it won't have BJ, it's looking pretty weak. The title fights are great, Nunes/Shevchenko and Miller/Sanchez are good, then there's 4 okay fights and a couple of fights I don't give a shit about.

    It isn't that bad but I'm used to Conor being on great cards after 189 and especially 194. I hope they add 1 or 2 more fights.

    It also feels like it needs another main card quality fight, imo.

    According to the way, they numbered the fights 9 / 10 are missing...

    Maybe the 9 / 10th fight that Sherdog thinks they may add might be worthy of the main card? Lets hope.

    I'm not sure. It might just be a standardized thing where they assume that all events will have 12 fights but I dont think the UFC has to.

    On the MMA Hour Ariel said that they were close on a fight that would be on the Main Card. Sounded big from the way he was talking about it.

    - McGregor vs Dos Anjos
    - Holm vs Tate
    - ???
    - Anderson vs Lawlor
    - Nunes vs Valentina

    - Latifi vs Vilante
    - Silva vs Taleb
    - Elkins vs Skelly
    - Marcelo vs Miranda

    - Sanchez vs Miller
    - Saggo vs Salas

    Sherdog has 12 slots with 9 and 10 missing making a total of 10 atm; seems like they are going to add 2 decent fights as those are both main card slots.

    I think they'll just add 2-3 prelims. Anderson/Lawlor will sneak onto the main and sadly, that other female fight.
