Its not a confirmed fight - indeed given the fact that Aldo was unwell at UFC 129 it may not be a go-er for this event. In any case I'd be surprised to see the UFC send a championship fight out below a non-title fight. Particularly one of the new titles - they need to convince casual fans that its important.

Your the UFC , your marketing a big fight , and your main marketing point is a man who weigh's 145 lbs , in MMA terms the equivalent to a BW ?? yes ??

It doesnt fly as a main !!! , Cruz Faber just about gets there and Faber is very very popular to the middle of the range mma fan and just popular to the casual fan . If your talking Aldo vs Penn / Edgar / Maynard then you have a main !! Chad Mendez as good as the kid is , is unknown !!!

Then filter in Rashad Evans to that equation and all points to Rashad Davis (being somewhat of a phenom on a very good run of wins) getting the nod IMO .

Cue the barrage of Rashad is the pits posts

He's a main event fighter , and thats where the UFC rank him and therefore they have an obligation to find him main event slots , which they duely have , i have no complaints over it certainly

Do you even watch UFC?

What fight headlined UFC 61?
What fight headlined UFC 81?
What fight headlined UFC 97?
What fight headlined UFC 101?

All events where the co-main event was a bigger money matche than the event's title fight but the champion still went out last.
