Most of these answers seem to be based on fanfare, and I agree... however if you're asking about the biggest fight. I think there are two, and they both only happen in the event of two specific victories.

When/if Overeem beats Bigfoot, he won't be fighting JDS in my opinion, they'll shoot him straigh at Cain, as they should. That will then be the biggest fight.

Now, as a die hard fan like all of you. It's amazing to me how many people still haven't witnessed Pettis's wall kick to Henderson from the awesome WEC days. Point being, the UFC marketing machine is awesome and powerful enough to push the living crap out of Pettis/Henderson II, espeically with Henderson no doubt gaining a lot of fame with his performance on FOX. Of course that can only happen if Pettis gets the best of Cerrone.

Those are the two fights I could see doing big Pay Per View numbers over the next six months.

I'm pretty sure a ton of people have seen the kick, the actual fight might be a different story but that kick was on ESPN a bunch in 2011 and even got played on my local news after the fight happened which has never ever covered MMA.

ALDO vs EDGAR!!!!!

I am also pumped for Fitch VS Maia, Dodson VS Mighty Mouse , Bisping VS Belfort, Dan VS Machida and Reem VS Big Foot.

EDIT - is Dan still fighting Machida or is he still injured and its Gustaf/Machida? Hard to keep track lately!

Dan vs Machida is the co-main on the Rousey card, in March I think?

Fuking Carlos Condit ruined the biggest fight of the year by beating Diaz lol.

I'm looking forward to Nick's the most personally, but outside of those 3 champs? Aldo/Egdar, Cain Vs Overeem/Cormier, Rousey Vs Cyborg. Think that's it. They might not get huge draws or whatever but to me anyways, those are the biggest. There are smaller ones like Fitch/Maia which I think are better, but those are the major ones, and 2/3 is going to happen so UFC = awesome...AS USUAL!

Right now Anthony Pettis vs Donald cerrone comes to mind. I don't think that far ahead and I know that fight is happening. All my hopeful fights involve the three guys you named.

Others off the top of my head.
JDS v Cain III
Benson v Pettis II
Aldo v Barao
Rory v Condit
