I'd love for them to do the Bill Cooper/Ryan Hall match that was supposed to happen at Meta 2, or a Jeff Glover/Caio Terra no-gi rubber match.

Regarding Rousey, I have a tough time thinking the biggest name on the card would be buried in a secret match, rather than prominently displayed on the marquee. That would be a terrible promotional decision. I'm assuming it will be two names big enough to satiate hardcore fans, but not big enough that they would have moved the needle much if announced beforehand. Phone Post 3.0

I think the secret match is there way of saying we have some people in mind, we will see who is healthy and in our price range when the event rolls around.

Twister Trent - Kenny v. Glover maybe?
This. Phone Post 3.0

I swear, if they take off their headsets and shed their suits (like Superman) to show a rashguard and nogi shorts, I'll be so indifferent to whether it's 'so cool' or 'so weak'

This is my guess as well, but similar to the post above, I think promoting Kenny Florian and his return to competition would be good for the event. So who knows

PittBJJ and I were kicking around the idea that it'll be Rener, with him expecting everyone will lose their shit when he walks out on the mat like as if it were 1990s WWF when a wrestler would make a big come back or something; except no one would care that much.

It has to be something interesting enough that it won't let everyone down, yet not important enough that they would have gotten more purchases if they would have announced it. Phone Post 3.0

Wallid vs. Royce would be pretty sweet.

Osiander vs. Rener just for the contrast in personalities.

Rousey just had surgery and with the paychecks she gets from the UFC I doubt she'd risk any injury for metamoris.

It will likely be someone metamoris has used before. Rumors of JT, Kenny and Glover have been circulating. It could also be Kevin Casey or a Gracie.

Ryan Hall was training with Kenny in LA for a bit. Maybe it was for Ryan's Mma or possibly Kenny's return to the mat? Either way with Sonen in possible trouble with the commission Metamoris may need a replacement headliner. Phone Post 3.0

if it was 2 big names, they wouldn't keep it a secret.

with the high expectations everyone has, people are bound to be disappointed. i'm just happy they are still putting on events.

There is no way it is a big name like Rousey. They still have tickets available, having Rousey headline the card they could have sold out the venue for probably triple what they charged.

I would highly doubt it's any current UFC fighters. It's not going to be Ed O'Neil or anyone like that either. Even Ryron or Rener would be enough of a draw that hiding them in a secret match wouldn't make much sense.

Florian and Glover makes the most sense, but I could see it being two world champion purple or brown belts as well.

It's likely someone at the Gracie academy or a frirnd that they want to give some publicity too at the audience's expense Phone Post 3.0
