The rumors have been around for weeks now. Probably going to happen as it's a big money fight that practically sells itself. The only hangup could be whether it's at 185 or a catchweight both can agree on.

Nick could easily make 185 with no problem. Gonna be a fight to see, but I think Anderson rebounds on this one.

No questions about him making 185 given he normally fights at 170. He fought Shamrock at a catchweight of 179, Scott Smith at 180 and only agreed to fight Mayhem at a cw of 181 (Mayhem orig. proposed 183) though that fight never happened.
matt brown missed weight (172.5) and has an hour to make weight

Update

Brown was given two hours to cut an additional 1.5 pounds to avoid losing 20 percent of his purse to Lawler, and planned on cutting the additional weight. But he was told by the California State Athletic Commission he would not be allowed to cut any more.

That led to a discussion between UFC President Dana White and the CSAC, in which White argued that Brown shouldn't be subject to a 20 percent fine if he was willing to cut the weight, but wasn't allowed to by the commission. Ten percent was to go to Lawler, and another 10 percent to the CSAC. White won out.
