    It appears that the main card for UFC 229 may be nearly set.

    Main Event: Khabib Nurmagomedov (c) vs Conor McGregor (1)
    Co-Main: Derrick Lewis (2) vs Alexander Volkov (5)
    Obligatory WMMA fight: Michelle Waterson (7) vs Felice Herrig (8)
    Ovince St Preux (7) vs Dominick Reyes (12)
    Sergio Pettis (2) vs Jussier Formiga (5)

    Hopefully they add one more decent fight cause nobody really wants to see that flyweight fight on the main card.

    I'd love to see the UFC promote another one of their upcoming stars on this card, like a Dan Hooker perhaps. Dan Hooker/Ragin' Al would be a great fight to kick off the card. Leon Edwards/Jorge Masvidal is another one I'd like to see. Or Sean O'Malley/Thomas Almeida would be fantastic as well.

    Which fight would you add to round out the card?

    Dan Hooker just called out Pettis for 229. It would be awesome if they rescheduled Holloway vs Ortega as co main, but I doubt it. I would like to see Arnold Allen on a main card of a ppv but I doubt that too

    Holy shit....imagine the main event falling out and UFC trying to swindle the 15 million dollar gate with Derrick Lewis vs Alexander Volkov as the main event

    Cody just got the piss beaten out of him, give the man some time. I have a feeling we won't be seeing him in the octagon again for awhile.

    Another fight of this calibre would be nice but most likely will be O'malley vs some can

    Maybe they'll put a nice fight at the top of the prelims

    100% the fight to put on there to showcase them is Gregor Gillespie vs Islam Makachev (sp?). Put them as the 3rd fight on the main card. Drop Reyes OSP to FS1 main event slot.
