    Rumor is they are saving Lombard to fight Rory on the Hendricks vs Lawler III card, so who is gonna step up to fight The Immortal?

    My guess would be The Dong. Anybody have any info on his status, i.e. is he injured or good to go or what? Being a Main Event I was sure they were gonna find a replacement ASAP.

    I didn't realize Tarec had pulled out. No complaints tbh as I wasn't particularly interested in that fight.

    Brown vs Lombard or Condit would be great.

    Lombard was sure quick to change his mind. Hopefully it's a top 15 guy and not a prospect since Matt has beaten his share of those.

    I'm almost certain they were trying to get Lombard.... but Lombard was so unimpressive, had a bad cut, has other issues. So without Lombard, who do you get for Brown that makes sense given how high up he is in the rankings?

    I think you are the only person in the world who wants to see that rematch.

    The only other guy besides The Dong I can think of would be Rick Story. I'd love to see Nate move back up to WW and fight Brown, but we all know Nate ain't doing the UFC any favors anytime soon. lol

    he said he's easing back into training, not ready for a full camp but would stubbornly do one. Good return fight for Condit.

    It'd be a tough fight to make his return with but I'd love to see it

    IMO, they should have moved Henderson/Cerrone III to anchor this event (Boston event is all abour McGregor anyway) and try to book Brown vs. Lombard on the Fight Night event in Asia on March 7.

    Henderson may have balked at that as he was on schedule to fight January 18.

    I haven't been able to find anything past the August news, I'd say he's a no go indefinitely until we hear different.
