UFC Rio: what’s your perfect card?

On the UFC website there’s a list of fighters for fans to choose from for for the August 27 UFC show in Rio de Janeiro.

But what would be fans’ dream card? Those perfect matchups that would please even the most demanding fight connaisseur, that would make UFC history and bring the crowd in the HSBC Arena to fever pitch?

GRACIEMAG.com drafted a possible “dream card” for UFC Rio, and even if you’re not Brazilian, as a good Jiu-Jitsu fan you’ll want to make your opinion known.

Coming up, UFC 129, in Toronto, counts ten Canadians on its card. So one can go all out in the number of local fighters to include. We just tried to be reasonable when it comes to budget and fighter salaries – no one could really believe, for instance, that the UFC would put together a half-dozen title fights on one night.

Check out our card and add your own: what would your perfect UFC card for August be? Then copy @danawhite on Twitter and hope the UFC head honcho likes your suggestions.

Remember, this is just the card we’d like to see – seeing as no fights have yet been confirmed for UFC Rio.

    Let’s not worry about the card…how about a dream UFC setting?

    * No gloves (I know, safety)
    * No time limits (train for survival)
    * No weight classes (true challenge)
    * No silly WWE version of champ meets challenger in the octagon (fight)
    * If Royce fights, wear a gi (ahhh, jiu jits)

    Yes, Brazil should be a great place to flashback to what the UFC was originally created for…The Ultimate Fighting Champion!
