    Now that we know the headliner, what should the rest of the ppv look like? Nunes may also defend 1 of her belts here, but I think they hold her off until international fight week. Here's how I would build 250:

    Cejudo vs Aldo
    Moraes vs Yan
    Anderson vs Lawler
    Werdum vs Ivanov
    Barboza vs Burgos

    What does Sherdog think?

    Yan vs Sterling #1 contender

    Moraes can fight Sandhagen

    Also no way Lawler fights Anderson Silva

    Lawler will get a winnable fight of a striker coming off a loss like Perry or Luque

    Anderson Silva will get a winnable fight against another aging veteran such as Brad Tavares, etc

    BS Aldo gets that shot.
    Marlon vs Henry
    Aldo vs Yan

    Still both fireworks and in order.

    Makes more sense rankings wise but rankings have no value or meaning so stylistically I'd rather see Yan/Moraes bang. Plus Sterling/Sandhagen would be a versatile high-volume striking battle & the grappling exchanges would probably be even better.

    They probably both lose those fights, let them fight each other instead of being stepping stones. At least 1 of them will win, & losing to another legend isn't as tough to swallow as losing to some journeyman who will never sniff elite status.

    I agree, but it appears imminent now

    Yan/Moraes is also very exiting to me, I guess they will all fight together at one point.
