Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Poll: Who Would You Like to See as the New Main Event of UFC 153?

(Seen here: One of the fighters who still has a chance of competing at UFC 153.)

Let’s face it: There is little more we can say to convey our disappointment in the disintegration of UFC 153. The card began solid enough (see above), then it got a little less awesome, then it got significantly more awesome, and now it is resting in a state of awesome limbo that it may never return from, which is not really awesome at all if you think about it.

With rumors flying that everything from Wanderlei Silva vs. Chael Sonnen to Rashad Evans vs. Anderson Silva at a catchweight is being eyed as the replacement main event for UFC 153, it got us thinking:

What fight would you, the fans, like to see as the new main event of UFC 153?

We’ve placed a few of the most likely options after the jump, but feel free to choose the “Other” option and give us your picks/reasoning in the comments section. The sky is the limit, but we must warn you, we’ve already asked Dana to consider Zimmer-Martinez II, and he gave us a resounding “maybe.”

@ Rex - I don't know about your silly baseball fight, but I'd like to see Zimmerman vs Martin II. Though I'm not sure either would be available for this event.

Stephan Bonnar vs Anderson Silva

Pussy vs Bitch 2 ... Say Goodnight: The Rematch

They should do a Ronda Rousey vs Frankie Edgar fight in an homage to the Billie Jean King vs Bobby Riggs match, if only to shut the dumb bitch up.

Jon Jones vs Halle Berry in a late night drag race.
Grandmas Nutmeg- September 12, 2012 at 4:32 pm
@RWilsonR - I'll gladly second that

@drewjitsu82 - It would take longer than 4 hours once Ben Askren, Jon Fitch, and Jake Shields got their shots.

back to back posting ftl :/

Machida vs Andy silva
The12ozCurls- September 12, 2012 at 6:09 pm
Never happening.
Both Black House dudes right?
Ricardo Guitardo- September 12, 2012 at 3:56 pm
How about jon jones vs 2 amature womens MMA fighters with a special "jones" rule if he starts getting his ass kicked he can quit the fight and it wont count as a loss?
KarmaAteMyCat- September 12, 2012 at 3:42 pm
@12ozCurls Franklin is fighting Cung Le soon.
The12ozCurls- September 12, 2012 at 3:55 pm
Move up the date then.

Put Aldo vs Koch after they both recover, give Chan Sung Jung the next title shot after it and stick Frankie back to getting some fights before a title shot.
Sonnen vs Machida is as stupid as Jones vs Belfort.
Sonnen vs W. Silva is a fight that should happen but not as a main event.
A. Silva vs Rashad at catchweight makes sense if Rashad wins and it then goes to the 185 title as a rematch later but if he loses then it ruins a title shot at 185.

Saying all that Rashad vs Silva would be good because it gets Silva to fight someone. No reason why he shouldn't be fighting a.s.a.p.

Where in the hell is the UFC's biggest company man and last minute replacement extraordinaire Rich Franklin. I am shocked that Ace has not been pegged to fight a fucking kodiak bear in the main event. Rich doesn't give 2 shits about short notice or his opponent. Sadly, PPV buy-rates for a Franklin fight are in serious decline thus dictating the UFC's decision.
For the record, the gambling enabler had the bear as a slight underdog at +125.
RwilsonR- September 12, 2012 at 2:29 pm
Honestly, the fight that is the most interesting would probably be Anderson vs Rashad. I'd like to see Chael vs Wanderlei, but Wand isn't the warrior he once was since Joan Rivers passed him the number of her plastic surgeon.

Oh FFS somebody has to save this card. I'll do it. Somebody contact Frankie's people and see if he can cut down to pixie-weight.
The12ozCurls- September 12, 2012 at 2:30 pm
Stealing my "Pixie" description of you, huh?
It is all yours only because it is fitting & I like you.
angry little feet- September 12, 2012 at 2:36 pm
haha hey it fits. who am I to argue?
The12ozCurls- September 12, 2012 at 2:52 pm
I would never argue with you.
Unless you deserved it ;)

Chael Sonnen vs Frankie Edgar for the official, "Fuck short notice, I'll take that fight" belt.
warmerica- September 12, 2012 at 2:18 pm
Give chael another crack at andy... Why not

Jon Jones versus everyone starting with Heavyweights and ending with a bantamweight kicking his ass 4 hours later
