Possible UFC Main Events For 2007

After Randy Couture’s amazing win last Saturday night over Tim Sylvia, UFC is in a position to have a year that is even stronger than last year’s amazing run. Nobody in MMA journalism thought they could possibly top the run of amazing main events they had last year, but Couture’s win along with Chuck Liddell moving to the heavyweight division after his fight with Rampage Jackson puts them in a position where they’ve got even more big-money matchups than ever.

A short listing of possible fights:

  • Randy Couture vs. Mirko Cro Cop
  • Chuck Liddell vs. Rampage Jackson
  • Anderson Silva vs. Rich Franklin
  • Matt Hughes vs. Georges St. Pierre
  • Matt Hughes vs. Diego Sanchez
  • Georges St. Pierre vs. Diego Sanchez
  • Tito Ortiz vs. Forrest Griffin
  • Andrei Arlovski vs. Mirko Cro Cop
  • And finally — the big one: Chuck Liddell vs. Mirko Cro Cop

    I strongly suspect they’ll hold off the Liddell/Cro Cop fight until the December 30 PPV, since that’s the biggest show of the year and that is the biggest fight UFC can make right now. If Cro Cop beats Gonzaga in May and then beats Couture for the Heavyweight belt, moving Chuck Liddell up to face him would create a match that would probably challenge for the largest buyrate of all time.

    Judging from my own personal metrics (blog stats), I would say that UFC 70 is much more highly anticipated than anyone realizes. Perhaps most of the hits are coming from eager Brits ready to see UFC live in their home country, but I’m getting an unusually large amount of people looking for UFC 70 news. In other metrics news, I’m also the #1 search result on Google for “ufc 68 results”, so I’m getting a lot of readers looking for that.

    1. Tom says:

      I do not think Chuck can be beaten right now unless he gets caught or fights Fedor from Pride. It is going to be great year of fights thats for sure.

      My Thoughts

      1. shout out to Rich Franklin Six words “That guy won’t beat you twice!” great fighter you had a bad day your better than him.

      2. Back off Tim Sylvia that guy gets a bad rap for no reason from the fans! He lost his belt he should be given some respect for his accomplishments to this point 25-2 and oh by the way he lost it to a legend!

      3. Rand Couture “You the Man!” Couture vs Lidell IV anyone Bueller??

      4. GSP vs Matt Serra Dana you need to start giving away some new sh$# other than title shots thats a weak Main Event for PPV

      5. Liddell Rampage New guy same ending

      6. Lidell at Heavyweight hmmmm Lidell Fedor now that’s a toss up.

      Best Show I have seen was in Columbus YOU GUYS ROCK!
