munoz vs weidman is main event for ufc on fuel july 11..

i imagine the winner of that will face the winner of bisping/boetsch, which would prly be a #1 contender fight

maybe lombard will face one of the losers. but like someone mentioned vs stann or okami wouldnt surprise me either

At the UFC 147 press conference in Brazil, Dana announced that Anderson vs. Sonnen was being moved to UFC 148 in Las Vegas and that Aldo could possibly be fighting at UFC 147, but the only possible fighter they could consider a top ranked Featherweight challenger for Aldo's UFC Featherweight Title is Hatsu Hioki, but Hioki's fighting Ricardo Lamas at UFC on FX 4, so the next possible fighter to challenge Aldo for the title is Eric Koch, so don't be surprised if it's Aldo vs. Koch for the UFC Featherweight Title headlining UFC 147 Brazil.

I only buy 2-3 PPVs per year but UFC 148 is definitely on my "to order" list. Card shaped out pretty nicely

Silva vs Sonnen (Middleweight title)
Cruz vs Faber (Bantamweight title)
Griffin vs Ortiz (Ortiz's retirement match)

Then on top of that...

Franklin vs Le
Bisping vs Boetsch
Kim vs Maia

agreed, lots of interesting fights on top of the two title fights
barao on the undercard too, if he wins, he should be up for a #1 contender fight or even a title shot against cruz/faber

Barao being on the undercard is a really strange. He should get the next shot at the UFC Bantamweight Title against the winner of Cruz vs. Faber. There's no one else besides him and McDonald deserving of a shot. But I'd give Barao the shot first and then to McDonald.

I really liked the fight on TUF live tonight. Check it out, it was pretty back and forth.

That was the best TUF Live episode the whole season.

Ronda Rousey coming in to train with the guys and tossing the guys around. I think Rousey could beat most of the TUF guys. Rousey coming to the TUF house was kinda crazy. Their reaction watching Jones vs. Evans with Rousey in the house was funny. Rousey asking Tickle for some nuts was funny also.

The build up to the fight focusing on Chris' past was neat. This episode focused on Chris' pasts and it really made him come across as a really likeable dude. Chris' really was the underdog and pulled through.

The fight was a ton of fun. Easily fight of the season.

TUF Brazil is going to have to put on a really good episode next with a good fight as that episode of TUF Live was really that good.

Yeah i definitely enjoyed that episode last night the most. The pranks are still pretty stupid and unnecessary IMO but it was cool seeing womens' MMA get some good publicity. Rhonda is gonna do more for the sport than any female in history as far as mainstream attention/business goes IMO.

And good fight to end the night. Agree it was the best episode of the season

UFC 149 will have Aldo defending the UFC Featherweight Title vs. Koch.

Beltran looks too skinny, happy for him he actually won though.

hmm yah i heard there was a possibility that they put aldo on ufc 147. just cuz he was a big hit last time, and i think ufc feels they almost have to since they couldnt get silva/sonnen in brazil.
*edit*: hmm but now i just read something on mmaweekly that aldo is likely to stay the main event in ufc 149

wow this Brazil card might turn out to be the biggest flop in UFC history. Went from one of the biggest events they've ever had to one that might get the lowest buyrate of the year.

Between that and the heavyweight one getting ruined, Dana's gotta be pissed
