I hope Mo is fighting on the card against either Vegh or Newton. Though I also want to see Vegh rematch Newton, that was a very close fight. But I'd really rather see Mo on there against either if it can work out that way.

Volkov vs Minakov would also be awesome to get on this card.

The winner of Shlemenko vs Marshall might not have a decent opponenet to try for this card in time, unless they can get a decent enough free agent to fight on this. None really come to mind but to fall back on the MMA GOAT of EVA!! Mr. Marvelous, Melvin Manheof seems like the best choice ever for Marshal or Storm.

Ben Askren is not on this card = Buyrate through the roof!!!

Chandler vs Jansen easy. Must be put on this PPV

Same with Curran. Curran and Chandler are must see MMA. Curran vs Frodo, or Straus but preferably Frodo.

So my preference is:

Page vs Tito
Chandler vs Jansen
Curran vs Frodo
Minakov vs Volkov
Lawal vs Newton
Shlemenko vs Manheof

That is worth $$$ to see. Actually that is worth more then I think they can put together, I doubt they can stack the card this well. But something with a few of these fights or fights like it would be good. Even if you throw in the Saunders, Friere bros, or Rogers, there are a lot of exciting good fighters to put on this card and the likely Spike undercard.

Been looking forward to this for a while.

That would require relevant fighters.

What? Fight's happening in BFC are as relevant as MMA is to the viewer.

Jeff Curran is still biggest threat to Aldo in the World. I would love to see that fight. Michael Chandler might be the best LW in the World and I'd pick him over Bendo. I think Storm might have beat Lombard in the rematch that never happened and could be as high as top 5 MW in the UFC. Pitbull brothers would hold their own in the UFC as top 20 fighters.

This can't possibly be good for Titos health. The guy should've retired three fights ago. I sincerely hope this is just a one time thing and he isn't looking to revive his career as a fighter.

Bellator is relevant, Rampage vs Tito is not. Yet in a Rampage vs Tito thread, you say you hope it pulls good numbers so the UFC can get some relevant competition.

Bellator is relevant competition and can continue to be so, but this particular fight will not be a big player in that.

Yeah, I don't disagree on the Rampage vs Tito thing. With these two something dangerous is the injury bug. Thing could be bad no doubt and not out of the question at all with these two.

The fight itself is more for casuals or noobs anyways I think in that obviously most solid fans know these two have seen their championship glory days come and go. I'm glad it's happening and can't wait to see it but this is a UFC-like move to sell names over good fights as a headline. I have no doubt the UFC would book this has a co-main or even main event today if both of these guys were under their wing still. Look how weak 161 or 163 cards are. They would promote these two names over their champions easy the same way so it's not a surprising business move to get all they can out of the names and it will likely work to a small degree.

But for me, what I'm really looking forward to the most is how they stack the rest of the PPV card and Spike prelims. For me, that is where the real beef is for this card. A lot of good options and exciting fighters to pick from. The card as whole is what has my interest piqued, the main event will be an after thought to what comes before. Something that can pay dividends with more of the good fights and nice finishes BFC fights often produce, just gotta make the matchups.

Dana White would never sign Tito Ortiz for another fight.

Guys Tito has fought with a cracked skull before. This time he is 100%. I don't think he has much to worry about.
