That could be awesome depending on who they have on the card... I'm hoping for a Mark Hunt vs Pat Barry fight!

So what's the over/under on the amount of times the card is changed?

Scheduled fights are meaningless unless we're a week or 2 before the event.

Almost all cards have some fights changed due to injuries, it's just the nature of the beast. It's rare to have a card completely ravaged (like Calgary did!) so you should still have a pretty good idea what the card is going to look like well in advance.

Main event announced: Renan Barao defends interim bantamweight belt against Eddie Wineland.

The card now looks like this:

Renan Barao vs Eddie Wineland
Dan Henderson vs Rashad Evans (pending Hendo getting medical clearance)
Antonio Rogerio Nogueira vs Mauricio “Shogun” Rua
Jake Shields vs Tyrone Woodley
Soa Palelei vs Stipe Miocic

Krzyzstof Soszynski & Roland Delorme are also expected to fight on the card with another 5 or so more fights still to come.

Tickets will probably be priced roughly the same as everywhere else: from about $70 to $500. They go on sale to the public April 12th with pre-sales starting on the 10th (UFC fight club members) & the 11th (UFC newsletter subscribers).

They won't be appointing officials for a while so I have no idea if I'll get the call for this one.

Anybody know if Jets season ticket holders get to get in on presale?

Not that I am one, but I'll have to kiss some butt if it works the same as for bomber season ticket holders and the Taylor Swift tix.
Curahee!

That's actually a pretty good line up. Really excited for the 2 & 3 fights.
I'm not much of a fan of the ultra midget divisions. the 125 & 135's are just too small. Some pretty big names on this card.
So sick of the idiots that run our beloved team into the ground again and again.

The card is filling out nicely, it would be nice to see one of the Pettis bros again or maybe the return of Josh Barnett against Frank Mir.....

I told Duke Roufus that since Sergio Pettis made his pro debut in Winnipeg, it would be fitting for him to make his UFC debut here too! He's got a fight in a couple weeks to get through 1st though.

Barnett is most likely going to Bellator (unfortunately for the fans).

Due to the likely high demand for this event, I'm assuming only P1 season ticket holders will be given dibs on tickets, as they pay the $500/per year seat license which includes pre-sale to every event at MTS Centre.

I don't think this will be like other events at MTS Centre where every season ticket holder or Wait List member gets a pre-sale code before the general onsale date. ex. NBA exhibition game, or other concerts you can tell would not sell out to begin with
