Could a UFC PPV get much bigger than this........?

Im sure this would get record PPV's both in the US and UK

Put on a card, realistically not just anyone you want but something dana might be content with


Chuck vs Wandy - the fight everyones wanted to see for years..........

Silva vs Hendo - would be Silva's biggest challenge and Hendo is a beast (unless franklin wins then him vs hendo)

Cro Cop vs AA - 2 ko artists vs each other, 2 of the most watched and favoured fighters

Bisping vs Griffin - UK's biggest star vs one of USA's biggest draws


Ok this is a likely one to do. We can easily make this better by putting in the likes of st. pierre, page, hendo etc. but they're headliners and dana's never going to put that many main headliners in 1 event, and it makes sense not to (business wise).


You could replace chuck vs wandy with Randy vs Fedor and it might be even better but there's no way dana would have them 4 on the same card and I would prefer to see chuck vs wandy more (just slightly) because the fedor vs randy match will be more methodical and chuck vs wandy just sounds crazy, both like to bang with wild punches.....

Add Huerta vs. Karo to draw another demographic and fill the Main Card and you have one hell of an amazing PPV!!

Wait (EDIT), Huerta vs Mach Sakurai! Now that would be awesome!



Gonzaga vs dos Santos - UFC on VS
Vera vs Jones - UFC on VS
Bibs vs Hansen - Dream 13
GSP vs Hardy - UFC 112
Gomi vs Florian - UFN 21
Nelson vs Struve - UFN 21

Oh but a man can dream... The only problem with this card is Chuck/Wandy sells a PPV alone so its doubtful you would see that many name guys on the same bill.

Huerta is but Mach fought at 163 in Pride so I think he should drop to LW in UFC but who knows, he may end up in WW.

For a die hard MMA fan that is a great card, but it would never happen for one simple reason. There is only 1 or 2 names up there that the casual American fan would know anything about. And sadly, one of them is the least talented of them all!

UFC PPV sales keep growing card by card, last fight we where slammed with calls and I would not be surprised if DIRECTV starts making UFC fights "key event days" after the last one.

That would be a nice card, I might have to call in sick if it where to ever happen.

One problem, although knowledgeable people knwot his the average UFC fan probably knows Rampage from 1 fight and Forrest from TUF.

Would never happen, nor would I particualy want it to happen. Think about it, if they have a card like this, those fighters wont be able to fight for at least 3 UFC events. Then we wouldn't be able to watch the 'big names' for at least a few months. I'd rather have a steady stream of really good cards than have a mind-blowing card followed by 3 mediocre cards.
