    Jose Aldo vs. Frankie Edgar - for featherweight title
    Rashad Evans vs. Antonio Rogerio Nogueira
    Alistair Overeem vs. Antonio Silva
    Jon Fitch vs. Demian Maia
    Evan Dunham vs. Gleison Tibau
    Bobby Green vs. Jacob Volkmann
    Edwin Figueroa vs. Francisco Rivera

    This is the one you invite your friends to who are on the fence about MMA and you don't want to take to a crapfest like 149.

    Is Dunham vs Tibau really on the main card over Benavidez vs McCall?

    edit: Nevermind, just realized Reem vs Bigfoot is 3rd on that list.

    yeah it's not in order because Reem/Bigfoot is co main. Either way I could see Ben/McCall on the prelims. They have, on recent FX prelims cards, had a big fight so it kind of has a main event.

    That isnt the set card order yet right?

    I know they figure Aldo/Edgar, Rashad, Reem and Fitch/Maia sell the PPV so they dont need that big final main card fight, they need fights on FX prelims to get better ratings so that could be why they would rather McCall/JB and tyron/Hieron on the prelims.

    If you have Creepy/JB, Tyron/Jay and Yves/Flagg on FX thats a dam good prelim card.

    Still though Creepy/JB should be on the main card above all the other fights.

    Damn.

    Let's hope the 2012 injury curse has died.

    If that card remains, I'll be a happy man.

    This card is gonna be nasty, if it holds up. I feel like four of those fights could easily be the co-main event on a bunch of cards.
