It's been a bit quiet(er) recently without a UFC or Bellator show appearing on every weekend, but that doesn't mean lots hasn't happened. In fact, something interesting has: UFC 194 is slowly turning into something of a super card. Obviously this assumes all of the pieces of the puzzle stay in place - a big 'if' - but there is some praise due for trying to put Jose Aldo vs. Conor McGregor, Chris Weidman vs. Luke Rockhold and Yoel Romero vs. Jacare Souza. I also suspect they're not done adding to this card. This is a departure from the 2012 strategy of building cards, but a welcome one just the same.

There's also a UFC event this weekend, albeit on Sunday, not Saturday. Max Hollaway returns to action against Charles Oliveira at UFC Fight Night 74. Also, Maryna Moroz takes on Valerie Latourneau for strawweight supremacy. As for the rest of the card, there's nothing particularly notable about it.
