The Ship Be Sinking

Mouth Almighty

Uh Oh

It’s the big one.

If it does end up as Hughes, now you’ve got him in a strong fight, Tito’s big return, and BROCK! in a title fight against a great contender who’s playing the game well to add heat to the match. This is an easy million buys show with that lineup, given the big man’s individual drawing power as well as the history of multiple main event shows outdrawing what any one of those fights would be expected to draw on their own. On the one hand the injury sucks for Almeida, but he probably would have been a substantial dog to Fitch and this potentially gives him a chance to get his 170-campaign off on a better foot in the future. This may end up as a win all around.

  1. Even better, is a rematch against Alves. Alves is a different fighter from when they met the first time. MMAJunkie is reporting that Alves will step in.

  2. Just saw that- not as big for business of course, but yeah, probably a much better and more interesting fight. Alves has changed a lot, probably still isn’t at his peak (though getting close) and he’s demonstrated the ability to improve markedly in his career. I’m excited for this one.
