    I'll admit it. I was wrong. I was one of the "UFC is dying" guys. I maybe saw 2 cards last year. The card tonight isn't great, but the main event has better hype than any since the Pride buyout. I honestly haven't been this excited for a fight in years and I'm sure most of you agree with me.

    I think things go well for 2015 and this is an excellent way to start. We have The Chris coming up soon, the HW champ and Interm HW champ.

    Discuss what you expect or simply like to see.





    *I will add, I know some people at Zuffa and will pass this along to them if any ideas are worthwhile
    Except not really :wink:

    I'd like to see the GOAT vs Aldo in Dublin OR Aldo vs Pettis in a superfight.

    edit: add The Chris vs Rockhard

    Jones vs DC is an excellent way to start, but a year is more than just one fight. All of the fights that we assume will happen in 2015, we have no guarantees that they will happen, but if they do 2015 will be great!

    Fights that I expect to happen this year

    Jones vs DC
    Jones vs DC II or Gus II
    Weidman vs Belfort
    Weidman vs Jacare
    Rory mac vs Hendricks / Lawler
    GSP's return
    Silva vs Diaz
    Silva vs ?
    Rockhold vs Lyoto
    Cain vs Werdum

    These are just to name a few. I would be crazy to think that all of these fights happen because I'm sure injuries will ruin some of them.

    This would be the best thing to happen in 2015. Cancelled fights equal upset fans and poor credit ratings for Zuffa. This should be UFC fighter's resolution haha.

    I doubt it. Did you hear? Drug testing is no longer being done by UFC. According to Sonnen, basic medical science is really restricted by the giant list. Many things would prevent injury and boost performance.

    Then again, I haven't even looked at the list

    Chael Silva 2 is possible the most anticipated rematch of all time for me.

    The first one is probably the greatest fight of all time. I literally shit myself when it was live.

    How about the Spider vs Yoel? I would like to see that one.

    I would like to see Anderson back in form and take on the contenders in the MW division....Jacare, Rockhold as well. I hope he tools Diaz. Not hating on Diaz, I just want to see Silva back in form. Besides, Nick is finally getting paid...something he has complained about for many years finally coming to fruition.
