Better be a prelim fight, Alves/Brown is a hell of a lot more competitive. And Alcantara is likely Faber's easiest fight since he lost the belt to Mike Brown.

I think it will make the main card just because of Faber.

We're talking about Urijah Faber, the mans beaten Wineland, Assuncao, Mizugaki, Jorgenson, Bowles and Menijivar and he's facing a guy who's lost to Hacren Dias. Faber's cleaning out the BW top ten so the UFC gives him a non-top ten guy on the biggest show of the year.

Which is why it sucks, you have eight men, 7 main eventers, title contenders, and possible huge draws and a frankly nobody is in the mix.

ETA now if it's a six fight card and they have Lauzon/Johnson and Alves/Brown it wouldn't be a big deal to me. Frankly if you are going to set up mismatches on the under-card the point would be to get 8/10 fights on this card.
