    it seems like no one will be available for this card

    Four champions will fight in March and neither of them will be available

    conor poirier probably will happen in July

    usman always takes a lot of time between fights

    who do you think will headline this card ?

    HW- Stipe vs Ngannou @ UFC 260.
    LHW- Jan vs Adesanya @ at UFC 259
    MW - no title fights scheduled.
    WW- Usman vs Masvidal rumoured to be in September.
    LW- no title fights scheduled.
    FW- Volkanovski vs Ortega @ UFC 260
    BW- Yan vs Sterling @ UFC 259
    FLW- Figueiredo vs Moreno @ UFC 263
    WFW- Nunes vs Tall Chick @ UFC 259
    WBW- No title fights scheduled
    WFLW- Shevchenko vs Andrade @ UFC 261
    WSTRW- Zhang vs Rose @ UFC 261

    ....


    TS has a point, no one seems available for that date. They should reschedule Figueiredo vs Moreno 2 for UFC 262 or look into an interim LW title fight.

    Likely is Dustin vs Conor III. Maybe throw Gaethje vs Chandler on there as comain and backup. Oliveira gets shafted.

    6 Champions will fight in March*


    Hopefully Oliveira vs Chandler for the vacant belt, Interim at the very least. DP/Conor 3 also an option but would be a quick turnaround for Conor after that brutal KO. July would make more sense for their trilogy.

    Amanda Nunes. She is likely to get out of her fight with very little damage done and she is a company girl. UFC will ask her to do a quick turn around against some scrub

    There are no big fights for Amanda. Maybe put her as main event to say fuck it and save the big fights for the summer. Any Amanda PPV will do less than 150k buys unless shes backed with a huge card. UFC likely saves her for another 2 or 3 title fight card just so they can boost the 'multiple title fights on one card' shtick they seem to be sticking to with her.

    They should scrap it. People will be exhausted from the four great Bellator events in the weeks beforehand.

    I don't rule out Izzy fighting Glover if he beats Jan decisively on Saturday. Also Gaethje vs Oliveira or Chandler does more buys then 261 and 263. They need to stop making Title Fight headliners a priority.

    Khabib will fight. He will put on a clinic and leave no doubt as to his goat status.

    This is why Dana reacted that way to Gane's performance last night. To meet their revenue goals, the UFC needs to develop needle movers. That is why Dana got so excited about Khamzat.

    The UFC has been trying hard to push WMMA and manlet title fights, but they just don't draw PPV buys. No matter how many times Dana says Amanda Nunes is the women's GOAT or how exciting Figueiredo is, the general public doesn't care enough to pay $70 to watch them.

    The UFC has to accept that the needle movers are going to come from 155 lbs and above. Focus on marketing exciting fighters in those weight classes and incentivizing them to be active.

    They have really painted themselves into a corner here. The main event for UFC 261 is WMMA, UFC 262 has no main event, and the main event for UFC 263 is manlets. They are setting themselves up for a streak of horrible PPV numbers.

    6 Champions, 5 title fights, actually

    1. Stipe
    2. Jan
    3. Izzy
    4. Ortega
    5. Nunes
    6. Yan

    Maths was never Sherdog's strong suit.

    It's like the UFC thinks the world will end after 261
