    At the UFC 173 post fight scrum, Dana White said he has to announce the Fox 12 main event on Monday. Apparently it's their deadline or something of the sort.

    What do you think it will be? I don't think it can be a championship fight.

    I know they said Lombard/Kim is targeted for the Macao card, but I'm still sort of hoping they make it Lombard vs Brown.

    I guess it is slightly possible it will be Nick Diaz vs Matt Brown. Apparently Diaz was at the fights.

    Nick Diaz said he doesn't want to fight Brown. My guess is Lawler vs. Brown since Lawler barely got touched and seemed ready to go another. He's hungry for that title rematch.

    nelson-hunt both recovering from hand injuries. luke's toe broken, both diaz bros out, lawlor needs a break, jacare-vitor oozes brazil card.

    Fox execs like heavys. My guess is Overeem-Barnett

    Rockhold said he will be ready to fight in September. Not in time for this card.

    Lawler's not fighting on this card either. He just had 2 fights, and he's in the process of moving his family to Florida.

    why do people keep bringing up schaub? schaub is still listed as fighting arlovski everywhere...


    Anyways, matt brown versus anyone will make me happy.

    My only guess is that they are really struggling to put an headliner together for this card.

    personally i think they get desperate and buckle to nick diaz and his 500K per fight demands.

    and i know that people are saying robbie has had back to back camps, not seen his family etc etc....but i think they persuade him with serious $$$$ and he agrees.

    Diaz vs Lawler 2....book it.
