    It seems like they wanted to do Ngannou vs Lewis 2 in Houston, but we're 7 weeks * Ngannou & the UFC aren't on the same page yet. If Ngannou holds out for Jones or just doesn't want to fight in early August, what should the UFC do? So far:

    Nunes vs Pena
    Luque vs Chiesa
    Aldo vs Munhoz
    Torres vs Hill 2
    Yadong vs Kenney

    Not that great. They could:

    -Pay Rose or Shevy for a quick turnaround

    -Try to add a big co-main like Gaethje/RDA

    -Pay Nick to do the Lawler rematch?

    Those are the only options I can think of. Izzy, Moreno, Olveira just fought. Usman doesn't want to fight Colby & already fought twice in 2021. Aljo is hurt. Jan & Volk booked for 266.

    Any other ideas?

    We'll probably just get Nunes vs. Pena as main event

    Yeah Ngannou won't fight soon.... I think Lewis will fight Volkov vs Gane winner, and Ngannou will fight Stipe for trilogy ( maybe in January )

    I think you're getting way too granular here, you need to look at the bigger picture

    Ngannou not fighting would really fuck things up. Then imagine Nunes pulls out.....

    The Pink Goof serving us a $100 McDonalds burger. Not worth it.
