why all these excuses for the UFC?Faber smoked them when you consider how many more commercials were run for this UFC event, a full hour preview show which I believe Faber vs Pulver or Brown never hadFaber > The UFC, pay that little man

Not sure everyone knew it was on. Too many events close together causes confusion.

this is probably about what they expected. Not awful, not great.It beat the shit out of the recent WEC on VS. So clearly, the UFC did pull a lot more than VS. has been getting.But it didn't beat the two biggest Faber WEC numbers. Could be because Faber has seen so much exposure on that channel.
