UFC 166 most stacked card ever?

I know I'm jumping ahead a couple months but has there ever been a card as stacked as UFC 166 ? I mean look at it.

Cain Velasquez (c) vs. Junior dos Santos [a]

Heavyweight Daniel Cormier vs. Roy Nelson

Lightweight Gilbert Melendez vs. Diego Sanchez

Heavyweight Gabriel Gonzaga vs. Shawn Jordan

Middleweight Luke Rockhold vs. Tim Boetsch

Welterweight Nate Marquardt vs. Hector Lombard

Lightweight George Sotiropoulos vs. KJ Noons

Lightweight Tony Ferguson vs. Mike Rio

Welterweight TJ Waldburger vs. Adlan Amagov

Bantamweight George Roop vs. Francisco Rivera

Featherweight Matt Grice vs. Jeremy Larsen

Featherweight Charles Oliveira vs. Estevan Payan

AND if THAT wasn't enough John Dodson was just added his last fight was a flywight title fight.

some of the preliminary fights could be on PPV.

UFC 166 is going to be INCREDIBLE

UFC 100 was more stacked, but ya, this is a pretty good one.

I'm confused why they're stacking this card when 167 is the 20 year anniversary show that they apparently wanted to make a big deal, and so far the only fight announced for that card is GSP/Hendricks. What gives?

The card would be better if Melendez fought someone closer to his skill and talent.

That's one of the better cards in years and I have a hard time thinking of a Pride Shockwave card that it even comes close too. The UFC is criminally watered down...

Yeah, at 100 Hendo / Bisping wasn't even the co-main, Belcher / Akitama opened the PPV and Coleman / Bonnar and Kim Dong-hyun and Jon Jones were on the undercard.

Hopefully this card stays intact ... we'll see ...

The thing that makes 100 so cool is the amount of undercard guys who have gone on to bigger things. Jones and Kim as mentioned, but Jim Miller and TJ Grant as well. But it's easy to look back on cards and find these stars on undercards though, they had to start somewhere .

I looked back at the Fight Night Seattle card I was at a couple years back, and it's funny to see where everyone is at. Anthony Johnson and Amir Sadollah won the co-main and third fight on the card, and both haven't done much since . Lower on the card? Korean Zombie, Johnny Hendricks, and Michael McDonald have all either fought for a belt or will within a couple months.

I'm interested in seeing what montange(i think that's his name) does against such a beast in his first fight. Dodson is fun to watch, will the prospect live up to the hype?

Pronounced Mont-a-hue, I believe. And while I think it will be a fun fight, I think Dodson will be able to win quite handily.

Ya, it's a tough entrance to the big time. I would like to see Dodson get another crack at mighty mouse, as much as I dislike him. The first one was fun as hell & dodson could definitely take it.

If the UFC would stop oversaturating the market with PPVs and shows, every PPV card could look this good.

It's going to be damn near impossible to top UFC 100. You had the two PPV kings on the same card, Lesnar and GSP.

Not to mention Hendo vs Bisping. One of the most memorable moments I've ever seen in MMA. I thought Bisping was dead.
