PostSubject: Chris Weidman vs. Luke Rockhold co-headlines UFC 194 in Las Vegas   Fri Aug 14, 2015 10:42 am

A middleweight title fight between champion Chris Weidman and challenger Luke Rockhold (14-2 MMA, 4-1 UFC) will co-headline UFC 194 in December.

UFC officials today announced the fight.

UFC 194 takes place Dec. 12 at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. The main card airs on pay-per-view following prelims on FOX Sports 1 and UFC Fight Pass.

As previously announced, longtime featherweight champion Jose Aldo (25-1 MMA, 7-0 UFC) meets recently crowned interim titleholder Conor McGregor (18-2 MMA, 6-0 UFC) in the headliner, and the event is expected to be one of the biggest in MMA history.

Weidman (13-0 MMA, 9-0 UFC), who recently clashed with his long-expected foe on Twitter, is ranked No. 1 in the NOS Energy Drink MMA middleweight rankings, and Rockhold is No. 2.

Weidman, who turned pro in 2009 after earning NCAA Division I All-American wrestling honors, looks for his fourth consecutive title defense after taking the belt from longtime champ Anderson Silva in 2013. The 31-year-old Serra-Longo Fight Team member has since posted title defenses over Silva, Lyoto Machida and Vitor Belfort.

Rockhold, a 30-year-old American Kickboxing Academy rep, earned his title shot on the strength of a four-fight winning streak. After a loss to Belfort in 2013, the former Strikeforce champion has defeated Costas Philippou, Tim Boestch, Michael Bisping and Machida. He earned three fight-night bonuses in the process.

It's looking like this is the big end of the year card. This is already an awesome line up, and hopefully they'll stack the the rest of the card and make it an all time great! The UFC needs that right now.

And now Yoel Romero vs Jacare Souza has been added!!

http://www.mmaweekly.com/jacare-souza-meets-yoel-romero-at-ufc-194-in-title-elimination-bout

So.....


Jose Aldo vs Connor Mcgregor

Chris Weidman vs Luke Rockold

Jacare Souza vs Yoel Romero

Metal War! Metal War!

Fuckin hell, they could throw a fight between two unranked women's BWs in the last main card spot and this would still be in the running for fight card of the year.

I mean hey, you know, please don't do that......I'm just saying, you could.

holy shit, do i want romero to get absolutely demolished by jacare. i hope he doesnt just knocks him out but makes him look stupid as he is and then chokes him out.
the other two fights i could go either way with slight edges to rockhold and aldo. i mean, just by mma math, rockhold dominated machida where weidman couldnt, though that machida with rockhold wasnt his old self. and mcgregor, i believe would lose to mendes on full camp, though aldo will not take him down, but aldo hits a lot harder than anyone mcgregor has faced
