    TBD vs TBA
    Nate Diaz vs Poirier
    Rockhold vs Weidman 2
    Jacare vs Branch
    Brunson vs Adesanya

    Good vs Aliev
    Kelleher vs Pilarte
    Moraes vs Arce
    Lando vs Frevola

    Burgos vs Holobaugh
    Roberson vs Marshman

    And people are complaining about UFC 229!

    With Romero's orbital bone surgery keeping him out until early 2019, UFC 230 loses its 2nd most appealing fight in Romero/Costa. And even with that fight it's not close to the depth that 205 or even 217 had.

    UFC 230 needs some help but there are only 10 fights booked so there is still room & time to improve.

    Diaz vs Poirer is the main event?

    My biggest question is who is going to headline. There doesn't seem to be any big fights which fit in around this time frame

    Looks like a damn good card to me comparatively speaking. No WMMA and I think most would like to see Nate vs Porier go 5 rds anyway

    Covington should defend interim against Nick Diaz

    I think once you add a main event and 2 more fights it should be solid.

    Three guesses on the main event.

    1. Gsp vs ????
    2. T WOOD vs Colby- if Tyron comes out of the Till fight healthy and ready the UFC may offer him this.
    3. Nick Diaz vs ???? With his court case settled and suspension well past hes eligible.

    The Diaz brothers both returning on the same card. That would sell ppvs.

    Dillashaw vs Moraes or Cruz would be a pretty sick main event

    Damn good card still
    A decent main event makes it one of the best cards of the year

    The complaints about 229 was before they added Pettis X Tony, i think most of us are happy with the card now.

    There is no main event right now. It's the co-main. I'll edit to add TBD vs TBA

    Jones just started getting tested so he's not fighting on 230.
