I thought ufc said that The higher weight class would always be the main event if there were two title fights. Phone Post 3.0

Why the hell is Faber-Barao the main event?

edit: I could definitely agree if it was the original unification bout, Aldo is getting screwed

Will be hell of a fight! Glad to see Makdessi fight again too, many interesting match ups in UFC 169. Hopefully Lineker makes weight this time

Probably cause faber had a big fan base and they probably already told Renan he was the main event Phone Post 3.0

I think Lineker is working with dolce now so he should be able to make weight Phone Post 3.0

Why does main event matter? They both 5 rounders anyway
Faber still the biggest draw here Phone Post 3.0

Jesus Christ, you people hate on anything if it isn't "Pride style"...

It's 2014, this is what's in. Simplicity, straight to the point to get casual fans knowledgable on what's gonna happen when they pay $55 on PPV.

Either that, or they can order a PPV and expect to see sperm swimming or a baby sucking a boobie for three hours...yep. Phone Post 3.0

As a few guys have said in this thread, pretty sure the UFC has stated that the heavier weightclass will always headline.

But yeah, from a business point makes sense, but a guy like Aldo should be promoted heavily to make him a bigger star instead of banking on Faber. No wonder Aldo doesn't sell very well when they do stuff like this instead of promoting one of the p4p best fighters in the world.

What a shitty way to treat Aldo. He's a fucking champion for Christ's sake!! At least give his bout half of the poster space! Fuck!
