Tomato Can - The card is still more than 3 weeks out, can't they get a replacement? Mike Pierce deserves a rematch with Koscheck, and Woodley, Dong Hyun Kim, and Gunnar Nelson don't have fights scheduled either, not to mention BJ Penn and Brian Ebersole whose statuses are kind of unknown.

IMO, it has more to do with getting a visa to Brasil than finding an opponent.


This.  Ariel already tweeted that, no top WW available, hard to get a work visa in Brazil.

Remember they just lost Siyar and had to replace him with Bobby V.

What top WW are healthy, not booked and willing to fight a top WW like Maia in three weeks? 

Erick Silva? Phone Post 3.0

Think thats a bit much dont you?  he lost to Fitch, I dont see the need to rush him into a fight vs a top 5 WW when he isnt ready just cause you need a replacement.

Plus thats not a big fight for Maia.   Unless you want to kill Silva off for good as a prospect in the div.

Well they can offer him the fight and he can take it or he won't. Just throwing out a possible opponent that would fit the criteria. I'd like to see it anyway.... Phone Post 3.0

As a Maia fan I'm kinda relieved. To me it seemed like an all risk no reward type situation for Maia, from the get-go.

Give him a legit contender.

Woodley was on MMAjunkie radio saying he wanted a top 10 guy but they were all booked and was waiting for someone to get injured!!! I like the short-notice match up if they put it together.

Lineker is gonna unleash something violent on him and finish him within a round.

Jose Aldo vs. Chan Sung Jung

This card is pretty much hot garbage but that's only the case due to injuries.

Agreed. Koscheck is a risky fight for Demian and has no reward except putting him over with casual fans who don't know any better and have a bad impression from the Weidman fight.

I'd like to see him fight Saffiedine. Either of them beating each other gives them all the credibility they need to get a crack at GSP.

If Maia ever loses, I'd like to see him avenge his loss to Marquardt at WW.

Wow thats a joke of a PPV card.

UFC really doesnt give a fuck about its fans just trying to milk this thing for every cent possible.

I get Golovkin pretty much for free with my HBO subcription and people are paying 60 dollars for this trash?

Should move Lawler to that card or Maia to the Fox card.

Convenient injury for Koscheck too.

A fight that he would either lose or look terrible winning in his opponents home country
