Pettis/Aldo will sell in Brazil, but will get 200-300 (max) PPV's, they need help! Koscheck vs Maia is nice and all but isn't co-main material, it's #3 or an awesome lead-in on a PPV
You are right in your thinking. Makes more sense for them to keep him on PPV. http://www.mmajunkie.com/news/2013/0...ierre-and-soon
According to that article Dana didn't rule out the possibility, although that was a week or 2 ago. He says he wants that card to be big for the 1st one on that channel.
Chael vs. Wandy is a fun fight, but not relevant and not the splash I was hoping for. I do know Dana sort of wants GSP to take a fight outside of Canada.
