    Nothing is booked for this event, tho it is located in Las Vegas on the 30th of August.

    I wonder what the UFC has in hands for this card.

    Rhonda Rousey is fighting at UFC 175

    Demetrius Johnson is fighting at UFC 174

    TJ Dillashaw fought at UFC 173, so he may be a candidate for a quick return, it would be a 3 month and 7 day lay off. But should TJ headline another PPV?? Maybe with Cruz.

    Jose Aldo is fighting at UFC 176

    Anthony Pettis is rumored to be fighting at UFC 182 follow TUF vs Gilbert Melendez

    Johnny Hendricks is currently injured and the Lawler vs Brown fight isn't till the 27th of July, exactly 35 days before UFC 177

    Chris Weidman is fighting at UFC 175

    Jon Jones is fighting at UFC 178

    Cain Velasquez is fighting at UFC 180


    Who the hell can headline this card ?

    They always have at least one PPV/year where they don't have any title fights (UFC 147 in 2012, UFC 161 in 2013). This might be it. They might have a non-title fight as a main event.

    Either that or Dillashaw/Assuncao II.

    Overeem vs JDS is about the only headliner that I think could work that isn't a title fight.

    Shouldnt be a problem, Mighty Mouse and Dodson are both gonna easily win their next fights. Its either that or no title fight.

    Why are you ruling out Dillashaw?

    That's a good main event. Heavyweights usually draw decent even if they don't have any title attached to them.

    We never know how this fight will go man, what if this is a war, and DJ gets badly hurt. What If DJ loses and its a controversial decision with an instant rematch. You never know what will happen these days, so it's not a safe bet.

    You might be able to get away with Dillashaw/Assuncao if you have a really strong co-main event. Like if JDS vs. Overeem takes place on that card, or if one of them fights Stipe.

    What's holding back hendricks? Aug 31 is basically september.. didn't he say he'd be ready for sept ppv? Woodly/macdonald vs hendricks?

    They could also do dillashaw vs whoever with some hw or lhws comaining.. stipe vs jds comain. Or hashad? I still think one of the top 3 fights for 175 may get scrappd and could be moved to this one
