    I think this might be a good idea,knowing they are very close friends... If one of them loses in the co-main,It would be a solid mental test for the headliner.

    The question is, would they get Pettis'd or leave with WW&MW belt?

    Cruz-Faber III will be on the same card as Rockhold-Weidman II

    Watching how Wonderboy avoided take downs and the clinch yesterday, makes me think he's going to be tough to beat. His striking is way above anyone else's at WW.

    So considering who the champs are, I think Thompson has a good shot at beating Robbie just based off styles. Robbie likes to stand and bang, which is right in Stephen's wheel house. Wiedman, not so much...

    Great idea. Though it's odd they would blow their wad on those two for UFC 199 when you have 200 around the corner with no obvious main event (Conor might be read by July after the RDA fight, but he very well might not be).

    Lawler vs Wonderboy should be co-main @ UFC 200.

    I sewverely doubt two title fights for 199.
    They are looking at putting Punk there, so that will help that card sell in June.
    They will stack up 200 more
