to assess home lame and event is

It could be calculated by equal the percentage of fighters on the card with legit Wikipedia pages, counting all fighter including prelims.

Tier 1 - 80%
Tier 2 - 60-80%
Tier 3 - 40-60%
Tier 4 - 20-40%
Tier 5 - 0-20%

for example if there are ten fights then you have 20 fighters. If 10 of them have Wikipedia pages then you get 50% so that would be tier 3.

Pay per views should be tier 1 but I would guess these days a lot are tier 2

The Macau card and the upcoming Halifax card are probably Tier 4 but happy to be proven wrong.

wiki pages creates by supercalo, OMA etc don't count. Phone Post 3.0

so you couldnt even be bothered to search 20 names for your own theory?

so Macau was 35% (7 of 20), so Tier 4.

Not the worst idea I have ever heard, even though it would have no real meaning of course.

Halifax is 14 of 22. so 64% That's a tier 2 card!!!!

The UFC would get wind of that shit and put some PR people on wikipedia pages pronto - I like the idea tho. I used Wikipedia to check who is fighting and when future cards are and if they don't even have a page and aren't getting any buzz as a prospect I know it could be lacking
