    Are they really that stupid?

    They are going to put this whole card on the faith of Jon Jones???

    They're stretched thin as far as talent is concerned. They've got to do what they've got to do.

    As long as the promotion is more interested in pushing Dana as the face of the UFC and smacking down any fighter who steps out of line, it's going to be hard for them to create stars.

    I thought Jimmy was told to be ready in case it falls through. Def needs a solid co main regardless.

    Well, their co-main is likely going to be Cyborg vs Megan Anderson for the something 145 belt, possibly the real one if they strip GDR but otherwise I don't know how they'd swing it. A Cyborg PPV for a belt would sell if they marketed it right.

    Also, they have Manuwa prepped and ready to step in if one goes down.

    Manuwa aka the next guy in line is fighting on this card. Gus is also an option

    I thought Cyborg was going to jail for beating someone up or something ... I can't keep up with all this anymore

    Imagine a scenario where Jones goes out without his driver, AKA strikes again - DC gets injured and Manuwa pulls out from the fight because it doesn't happen in England.

    Well hopefully they'll have over ten minutes of a Conner interview wedged into the event like during thefirst fight. We don't need to hear both fighters give post-fight interviews, anyway.

    they shouldn't do anything to delay the fight at all, Jones is liable to get arrested as he walks to the cage. Every second counts

    They need McGregor to send a signal during his interview to make it clear that if Jones is good, they'll get high together and fuck up a hotel room or some pedestrians after the fight.

    The future of the UFC is not banking on this PPV I don't think so if the main event falls through they should be alright this would not be the first nor last

    They HAVE to, Clippy.


    Dana swore that Jones' next fight would not be a main event, because he couldn't be trusted.

    The only way to make that as big a lie as possible is to make him the main event AND back it up with nothing.

    Manuwa is on the card and a Cyborg fight is still a possibility
