Brock isn't going to do a nonppv show because he would lose millions of dollars and the UFC isn't taking a profit loss like that either. They just have to put like two contender fights on the card with reasonably well known guys.

Espn has a rumour of Tito Vs Kos, under there insider info (Which Im not privy too)

Also there is a rumour gaining traction on Fitch fighting Rory, so that would squash Kos/Rory, since Kos is wanting a come-back fight at 185+

There is NOOOO way Lesnar and Overeem fight for FREE on fox. $90 million a year...

1 million buys at $65 is $65 million, thats almost more from one lesnar fight than the entire contract with Fox for a year. $90 million covers the advertising from TUF (26 episodes), 6 Fight Nights, and 4 numbered Ufc events.

Leben fights the week before in England against Munoz, Nov 5.

Maybe start making a list of guys free, that are possible.

Lil Nog Vs Franklin
Ortiz (Espn rumour Vs Kos)
Fitch (Wants Ufc 139 in S.J.)
Koscheck (See above)
Rory MacDonald (too unknown, and likely to fight in Toronto)
Stephan Bonnar (Most likely to fight)

If Forrest loses to Rua, I can see he and Bonnar headlining or as previously mentioned Davis/Machida

How in the hell would Tito make it to 185? Kos said he was going to do 1 fight at 185 and everyone assumed it would be so he could smack Bonnar around, who still would make a bad weight cut to do it.

Do you guys know this card is on the same date as Pacquiao V Marquez 3 which will be a very big seller given their respective national followings. I'll watch one live, record the other.
