Would Cruz on UFC 200 as a co-main event and Conor/RDA as main be acceptable and big enough?

    I find Cruz pretty fascinating, and relevant.

    Champ vs champ

    Assuming Conor gets by nate, which is by no means a guarantee. But maybe yeah. Conor vs RDA, Cruz vs Mighty Mouse Rematch at 135 if he gets by Cejudo uninjured? since MM basically has his division on lock down.

    Maybe put Cruz on a Fox card vs Faber first to get him mainstream. Then he'll create enough interest for PPV

    As long as conor is on the card if he is not there than doesnt matter if they stack all ther other champs together.

    Unfortunately, no. Not for 200. Lighter class, 3 years layoff. People don't care.

    Cruz vs Mighty Mouse might be the only fight to make it relevant

    But MM already has the fight with Cejudo in April so I doubt we'd get to see that

    I dont think a TJ rematch or Cruz / Faber III would be all that interesting or big for that matter

    If they didn't want UFC 200 to be successful then they would put Cruz on it

    UFC 100 had GSP as co-main.

    UFC 200 is supposed to be bigger than 100. Is Cruz bigger than GSP?

    As long as Cruz isn't fighting Faber, I'm fine with it.

    They aren't going to top UFC 100, so let's kill that noise right now.

    Yeah. I Have a hard time believing they have anything on the roster to top Lesnar, and GSP on the same card. The level of freakshow brock offered, and the level of MMA pedigree Georges offered was just so big.

    You're right. And a heavyweight fight could be legit. What if, God forbid, Stipe gets injured, Overeem smokes Arlovski, and they quickly book Overeem vs Werdum 2 as co-main event to Conor? That would be huge, if true. I'd pay $60.00

    Conor Vs Rda
    Rousey vs Holm rematch (or whoevers the champ)
    Throw Faber vs Cruz on there? but that would be 3 title fights

    I very much enjoy watching Cruz fight and think he's an all-time great, but I don't think UFC 200 is the greatest idea for various reasons, including his potential opponents and how they match up. And I do think the card needs a title fight from one of the higher weight classes, even if it's WW. I've been hoping we'd see Wonderboy vs. Lawler at UFC 200, but it doesn't seem like that's happening.

    They seem to rely on Conor right now.
