The Big Card for December?? Who??

I Hope one fight is of course GSP & penn - I'll take GSP as he is so frigging sstrong & impossible to get a takedowsn on & Is so good at getting a fighter going one way & Boom he throws them the other & on their back, He did so with Hughes in their last fight & I was amazed at how easy he took Hughes down....

Would LOVE to see Fedor - couture but That's dreaming

I'd Love to see Henderson - bisbing!!!!!

Maybe a Cro Cop return???

The Return of Rampage against jardine

And then Sherk - huerta

2 of the Fights are HIGHLY Unlikely fedor-couture & Cro Cop - ??

The others would be a good card with Other nice fill ins to be decided....

Either way - I Think Dana needs a BIG December Card HEH Call it Wallop-Palooza

The 2007 NY Giants.

Making The So called experts eat shit for years to come....

If I'm not mistaken the latest rumors for the December card is GSP VS BJ and Rampage VS Wand.

Right kick, Hospital.
Left kick, Cemetery.
-Mirko Cro Cop.

Rampage/Wand was actually rumored for Nvember.

Lets see:
Main event
GSP vs. BJ Penn for WW Title
(P) Liddell vs. Griffin for LHW Title
Nog vs. Mir for HW title
Shogun vs. ???(rumor has it as being Coleman)
(P)Arona has been speculated of being in negotiations with the UFC as well
(P)Crocop return if Fedor doesnt accept the offer made by DREAM to fight him at NYE event

Note: While two rumored matches of Rampage facing off against one of two former Chute Boxe fighters in Wandy and Shogun for this card, recent rumors have suggested Wandy vs Rampage fight will actually take place at UFC 91 in November

You think Liddell can fight in September and in December? That's pretty intense man.

Yes but the Layoff for Forrest will already run pretty long and Chuck has been in the business for long enough to adapt to nearly a four month turnover. Plus when has Chuck really been known to alter his gameplan for an upcoming fight. If you look at it its always sprawl and brawl nothing else, all he has to do is study Griffins tendencies and that wont take too long at all.

Agree but it's not just a matter of game plan. Just the healing, recovery, physical preparation etc takes weeks or months. But hopefully we'll get to see the WW and LHW title shots for December. I think Wanderlei is more likely to get the title shot if Forrest was to fight in December and especially if Rashad wins lol. What do you think?

You know how fighters say they never look past their opponents and that anything can happen? Well in the case of Chuck's next fight thats pretty much just PC bullshit. Everyone knows hes getting the shot after he wins and that Machida has to fight once more after beating T. Silva (Yaya i know what ur thinkin "how unfair" but all you guys just need to face the facts for what they are). As for recovery time the fight is likely to be an intensified sparring match but with Liddell actually KO'ing intead of pretending to. Aside from the cut i can see Chuck considering the time from when Forrest won to December as extended preparation for a title fight.

Neways me completely writing off Rashad aside a four month turnaraound for Chuck is doable and the past two years the UFC has made it a point to have him on the NYE card. BTW the bold part who do you suggest would fight Forrest in December if not Chuck? Surely u didn't mean Wandy?

Don't worry guys, it will end up being Chuck vs Forrest in TUF first.
