    I just realized, Ferguson-Nurmagomedov isn't actually the main event, must mean their looking to go into UFC 194 weekend with a bang with a good TUF Finale card, I'm thinking we get an awesome main event. What do you guys think will be it or better yet what would you LIKE to see main event this card?

    I'd like to see Holloway/Oliveira winner vs. Frankie Edgar or Glover/Cummins winner take on the winner of Rumble/Manuwa. What do you guys think?

    Glover vs Rumble would be fantastic. Maybe they put JDS vs Reem as the main event?

    I was thinking they may try to have Faber vs ?

    that way they have both TUF guys on the same weekend. And FS1 probably wanted to have one of them on the channel after having the season.

    This one is the night before UFC 194 isn't it?

    I'd say that Edgar will main event it. If something goes wrong in the 194 main event (cough cough) then Edgar can come in and Fergy-Nurmy will be a good enough main event to take over that card.

    Definitely could be, that would be good. I think they'll save it for either FOX or 194 though.

    Could be a fight like Edgar/Stephens or Machida/Kennedy as well, but I don't think either of those should headline over Khabib/Ferguson. Maybe it'll be Pettis vs either Diaz or Alvarez?

    Faber vs. Gamburyan would be pretty sick but probably not main event material..

    I'd like to see Almeida fight Johnny Eduardo since Johnny called him out. Good fight to move him through the division. That or Rivera/Lineker winner.

    That'd be cool too. Wasn't Sterling bickering with Eduardo too, that's the fight I was calling for. I also wouldn't mind Almedia vs either Yahya or Caraway either. Any of the guys I just mentioned you could match up with each other. You also gotta throw, J Rivera, Saenz, Garbradnt and Alcantara in there somewhere as well. And of course the Rivera/Lineker winner. Lots of great matchups to be made at 135.

    But I really want to see Faber/Almedia eventually.

    Faber vs Carraway would be cool

    Sterling has been calling out everyone. Makes things interesting. The fight he's really gunning for is Caraway though.

    Faber vs some solid featherweight who doesn't represent a massive challenge for him. Kawijiri maybe?

    I think they should do Edgar vs Stephens for it. Don't want them to burn off Max by doing that fight. If McGregor wins I assume they do a rematch. So would put them in a shitty spot.

    Think you go Edgar vs Stephens. And have Faber fight on that card or open up the show for the UFC 194 show.
