Should they just move Hall vs Strickland to UFC 265 now?

    Given that Amanda is off the card now due to covid...why not just move Hall vs Strickland to the co-main of UFC 265 and reschedule the other fights to other upcoming cards? Not the ideal situation but Hall vs Strickland already lost their co-main anyways. I doubt they are going to draw a huge viewing audience this saturday anyways. What would you think if they did this?

    Lol it's not like Saturday is a stacked card. Hardly anybody would miss a beat if they scrapped it and rescheduled.

    UFC would keep Roxanne Modafferi vs Justine Kish as a main event if it meant counter-programming their enemy (Bellator).

    Lol oh yeah I forgot about that. Although Bellator is on Showtime so by default their potential audience is already limited.

    2 division champ Pitbull vs undefeated AJ Mckee for the Bellator grand prix belt, the FW belt, and 1 million dollars.

    Nah, I'm totally game to watch this awesome fight for free and then not pay for the lackluster ppv that is ufc 265.

    They've already made posters, promos etc advertising Hall / Strickland as the main event this weekend lol, what are they supposed to do, promote the Rani Yahya fight to the main event? <Lmaoo><45>

    Obviously you didn't read my thread. I said they just just reschedule the rest of the fights from saturday to other upcoming cards. It's not like Saturday's card is stacked.

    265 is fine, & the ppv can be better now if they replace her with Fiziev/Green.

    Gane vs Lewis
    Aldo vs Munhoz
    Luque vs Chiesa
    Yadong vs Kenney
    Fiziev vs Green

    Solid ass ppv card with no WMMA or random HW slop

    Combine both cards and have a mega all day event.

    Wouldn't be smart, that would affect a bunch of fighters too close to the actual fight date. You do stuff like that in advance, not the week of the event. It would be better to just take the loss on the card with Amanda instead of trying to scrap this weeks event. They may still be able to fill it, who knows, most likely they just move a fight up to replace it and take the loss. Not sure what big fight they can get in that short amount of time with fighters willing to fight on short notice like that. Unless they want to move the Hall and Strictland fight only and keep the card on the weekend and just move up the other fights to main event and co-main. That would work better than trying to scrap the whole event.

    I'm sure the other 24 people fighting would miss the card a little at the very least.

    Jose aldo will be bumped up to co-main.

    Could've been chiesa but he's not a former ufc champ.
