What fight is most realistic to happen if UFC goes to new York?.
 
If all goes well and the UFC heads to New York later this year what fight do you think will headline the card?.

Ime hoping we will see Jones vs Silva, I think the UFC will throw alot of money at the event to make it special.

If not then I think it will probably be Cain vs Jds III, with maybe Ronda as the co-main.

Im not sure exactly who fights but I bet they put together a card to rival UFC 100.

If GSP/Silva was ever gonna happen, i'd say it'd be on an NYC card.

I wouldn't hold my breath for any superfights... the fighters in question aren't suddenly gonna change their stance outta nowhere just because the venue changed.

Most likely it's just going to be headlined with a HW champ fight as you said, like Cain vs the Super Samoan / JDS 3.

Cain Velasquez vs Daniel Cormier HW title
Frankie Edgar vs Dominic Cruz BW Title
Jon Jones vs Frank Mir

Chris Weidman vs. Anderson Silva II... after Chris grants Anderson a rematch.

Jones -Silva 15 million. Winner-take-all.

That said .....Zuffa is a Vegas-based promotion, and so far, they haven't even agreed to do an event in Jerry-World (Cowboys Stadium, Dallas). How big do they WANT New York to be? Madison Square Garden? The Meadowlands (Giants-Jets Stadium)? Yankee Stadium? You could put championship fights in the prelims, if this is the card to end all cards.

How about main event

Jones -Silva
Cain vs Bigfoot (Except after that much blood, NY might ban the UFC again)
GSP vs Hendricks
Ronda vs Meisha Tate (Tonya Harding waiting to happen. Beaucoup PPV)
Cruz-Edgar (0pen the main event with the local kid)

That's if the plan is for THIS event to move the UFC to the third biggest world sport behind football (soccer) and basketball, and #4 US. (Add baseball, american football, drop soccer).

I don;t happen to think that would work, and after they're debut on Fox, I think Zuffa knows better, but IF that's the plan ....

NOTE: I put GSP on that card, but I don't really want anything going to decision. A Hendricks KO would be historic, and that's what I'm aiming for. No put 'em against the wall dirty boxing types. I like that style, but this is to put on a show.

I'm sure they'd throw ridiculous amounts of money to the both of them and would go for the best card ever.

It would definitely involve JBJ though.
