    The UFC is coming back to London in March 16th, then.
    What do we reckon the card will look like when it's completely full? It won't be a stacked card, that's for sure, but could be some decent under the radar fights to be added. A few fights already announced, in bold below....I'm going for something like...…….

    MAIN CARD
    Darren Till vs. Santiago Ponzinibbio
    Volkan Oezdemir vs. Dominick Reyes
    Nathaniel Wood vs. Louis Smolka
    Ross Pearson vs. Joseph Duffy
    Tom Breese vs. Cezar Ferreira

    TELEVISED PRELIMS

    Gokhan Saki vs. Saparbek Safarov
    Makwan Amirkhani vs. Danny Henry
    Paul Craig vs. Marcin Prachnio
    Claudio Silva vs. Danny Roberts

    FIGHT PASS PRELIMS

    Marc Diakiese vs. Jessin Ayari
    Brett Johns vs. Ian Entwhistle (read somewhere this was official ages ago, but not listed at present)
    Molly McCann vs. Priscila Cachoeira
    Jack Marshman vs. John Phillips

    I live about 30 mins from the O2. I would be happy with and would go. Perhaps a better opponent for Wood. I would also expect to see Edwards on the card. Perhaps against someone like Gunnar Nelson.

    UFC hate the U.K

    That card will probably suck.

    They don't give the UK cards any star power because PPVs in the USA and Canada are their bread and butter and must take place during their peak time zones. We Americans and Canadians get royally screwed in a way where you brits get it all cheap with BT sports, yeah you have to stay up until 5am to watch most cards but you guys are normally up that late anyway, drunk on Proper 12 I imagine. Conor should headline a UK card.

    Put your money on every British fighter. If it goes to the judges, you're rolling in dough.

    Ross Pearson vs Joe Duffy would be a fun fight, both have nice hands.

    Sadly you'd never get a UK card of this standard

    It's looking like Till vs Edwards as Main event based on their Instagram posts....

    I'd be happy with that
