Re: UFC Discussion
And, just for fun, here's some random fantasy bookings:
Heavyweight - Brock Lesnar (if he beats Frank Mir convincingly) vs. Andre Arlovski
Supposedly Arlovski has one fight left on his deal with the UFC and then he's off to fight Emilianenko. If Lesnar looks like the real thing, then feed him the former champ.
Light Heavyweight - Rashad Evans vs. Chuck Liddell
Winner gets a title crack at the Rampage-Forrest victor.
Middleweight - Mike Bisping vs. Martin Kampmann
This division needs a great fight and these two could provide it.
Welterweight - Josh Koscheck vs. Matt Hughes
As close as you can get to a true professional wrestling match.
Lightweight - B.J. Penn vs. Floyd Mayweather
Mark Cuban says Mayweather would try MMA for a mega payday, well Penn's just the guy to give it to him. Boxer vs. jiu jitsu freakazoid with the unofficial title of "best fighter in the world" up for grabs. Cuban would surely want to own the action on the fight, but he's got no opponents for Mayweather in that weight class. The UFC owns the lightweight division. If Mayweather isn't just goofing around, and he probably is, then this is the fight and the UFC is the only body that can stage it properly (venue, promotion, legitimacy of sanctioning body). In fact, this could be the bout that puts MMA inside Madison Square Garden, cracking it open to an even wider audience. Cuban's promotion can try to make money on the ensuing windfall in the sport.
