    A bunch of UFC 229 fight announcements today. Seems like a mixed reaction to the bookings, but there's still some space left on the card.

    So, who should the UFC book for the remaining fights on UFC 229?

    My picks are:

    Sean O'Malley vs. Tom Duquesnoy
    Anthony Pettis vs. Dan Hooker
    Holl Holm vs. Cat Zingano
    Mirsad Bektic vs. Chad Mendes

    The top 2 maybe. Think smaller contracts after that. Juilan Marquez, Violent Bob Ross, Brunette Shevchenko. Not sure who they would fight.

    Mendes not looking to come back until DEC, Zingano looking at NOV 10th in Denver where she is a decent draw.

    Doesn't matter. A Conor vs. Khabib headliner will absolutely saturate the hardcore PPV market. Any hardcore who pays for PPVs will pay for that headliner alone, the rest of the card doesn't matter because the hardcore market is already saturated and no casuals know anyone outside of Brock, Conor and GSP anyway.

    the rest of the ufc 229 card should be trash cause everyone says conor is all you need for 1.50 mill ppvs. so need for 4 title fights to go with conor/

    Wonderboy vs Lawler? I remember seeing Wonderboy say he wants to fight Lawler but it depends on Lawlers health..
