    And by "ever", I mean top to bottom. So far the card looks like this as per MMAjunkie.com rumours...

    Jones vs Santos - LHW title
    Nunes vs Holm - BW title
    JDS vs Ngannou
    Masvidal vs Askren
    Rockhold vs Jan B
    Chiesa vs Sanchez
    Marshmann vs Shahbazyan (8-0)

    That is stacked! Thoughts?

    I dont see many exciting matches here tbh i mean i will be entertained but it is not exciting, half of the results of these matches are easily predictable.

    It's ok I guess, needs a lot more to be considered one of the best ever though.

    Good enough to buy but not one of the best ever. Top two fights will probably be one-sided.

    Alot of fun fights on this card. Name wise is a huge card. But i'm not interested in main/co fights.

    Because he finished a man Jones could not, and because he is a Just Bleed God Disciple who blends violence, ferocity, and entertainment quite well. Though his chances of victory are slim, he has still been impressive at LHW, and no less deserving of a shot than Anthony Smith was. We seem to confuse, "There is no fighter in the Division who looks like he can beat Jones" with "This fighter doesn't deserve to fight Jon Jones for the Belt".

    Just because these guys have little chance of beating Jones, doesn't mean they didn't earn a shot at him with their body of work in comparison to others in their division.

    I'm starting to think Dana White torpedo'd that fight.

    He probably realizes Jon is only a PPV draw as long as he's got that "unbeatable" aura. If he loses to Stipe, his draw power vanishes. The UFC need dependable PPV stars now more than ever.

    I think the UFC invested a lot of money to bribe USADA into giving Jones a pass, and they need to recoup that investment.
