kickasspoolparty -  I'm kinda confused here. Why is everyone pissed at dfw and the ufc? It's not like Dana went in to Gus's training and socked him in the eye and opened up the cut, is it? They did the best they could with 6 days notice. It's not like they can get some big name in that short of a period of time. It is what it is and the show must go on. It's a let down but to place all the blame on the ufc is uncalled for in my opinion. Phone Post

They should have put out a better card, that's why. They learned nothing from UFC 151 that's why people are pissed, still the same bullshit
The cards not that bad for being free on Fuel. If you had to shell out $55 for, yeah, complain.. It's one of those cards that usually has sleeper match ups on it. Not one person on this forum can say it sucked until after the nights over. If you do, to me, that's pretty lame. I'm a fight fan and I get to watch these fights for free, I'm okay with that. So I'm of the opinion you guys are being pretty childish about the whole thing. If anything be pissed at Gus for getting cut the week of. Phone Post

I don't care if it's fuel or whatever it's still a weak card, the fact that none of the other fights could headline a FUEL card shows it's too weak, they should have easily been able to bump another fight up and keep the ball rolling instead they had to go look for scraps to salvage the card.

If somebody pulls out and it potentially kills the card, it's too weak. Doesn't matter if it's ppv or fx. They always prided themselves on not being boxing but these cards that revolve around one fight need to go
So you're telling me you wouldn't watch the fights if Pearson vs Couture got bumped to main event status? I know I would. I've been following both of them for a while. It will be interesting to see if Couture can get past Pearson and if he doesn't the hype around him and his name are gone. As well, I get a kick out of watching Mitrione, he's fun to watch even if he looks like shit on occasion. I don't know maybe I'm just a fan of fights, I don't need names or number one contender bouts to be content with a free night of fights. Phone Post

Latifa is coming off a win over a guy who had just submitted James Irvin in the first round. This is better than removing mousasi from the card. Who doesn't like an unknown stepping up and fighting a top guy on short notice to save an event? It's the shit this sport was built on

I would watch, I think there are good fights on the card, but it could have and should have been stronger. When someone pulls out and people start panicking trying to salvage the cards then something is wrong IMO, the ball should keep rolling that's what they always prided themselves.

There are great fighters and solid fights on the card but there was never a real co-main event that was my issue, they built the card around one fight and that's the problem I have with it, it's not the lack of names that's really my main gripe with it, I can name every person on the roster and most likely have seen them fight at least once anyway

Right. They are good cards being "free" . They aren't totally free though. How many of us upgraded just to get fuel? I know I did.


I'm not mad at ufc. But....now they have an unknown headlining the show. No lhw's for backup? Its a mess.
I understand were you're coming from about upgrading your cable for Fuel but it is a long term investment for a ton of future UFC programming. One night got screwed up because of someone's training regiment. I'm still going to put this on Gus. He should've been more careful. Phone Post

Oh yeah a lot is on gus. He made a huge mistake.

I don't disagree at all and when I look at the TUF finale and the next UFC on Fox, your point makes even more sense to me. That being said we have three nights of free fights coming up so I'm still not that bummed really. Trust me, I wanted to see Gus and Mousasi fight just as much as anyone else, at least we still have Mousasi. Maybe in the future the UFC will balance some of these cards better. Phone Post

I really don't care.

I mean, sad Gus is out, but I am watching for free on TV and didn't pay for tickets.

On t'other hand, the people of Sweden got robbed....hard.

Get in line, Stockholm, Calgary is owed next.

Yeah this sucks for Swedish fans who are attending.

Tickets for this event are more expensive then the FOX Henderson vs Melendez card. They should have at least been given better co-main event fall back onto if everything went tits up. Phone Post 3.0

HeHitsMeBecauseHeLovesMe -  Wow, I cannot even believe he is selling this turd to Sweden. I'll watch on tv, only because it's free. I hope there is a shit load of backlash over this. I honestly feel like the ufc deserves this. They talked so much shit about boxing and how each card is just one fight that anybody cares about, with an undergrad full of nothing. And now they are consistently putting on cards with the EXACT same model. Look where he is now. Putting a card on with not even one fight that people give a ship about. I have a lot of respect for Dana and the ufc, but this is karma for giving us 1 fight per card in the first place. Phone Post

To blame this on Dana and the UFC is ridiculous. You know how hard it is to find a legitimate replacement, for a card in Sweden, on 6 days notice?

It's a FREE card, you ungrateful dunce. The card may be crap to fairweather fans like you, but I'm pumped for a killer night of fights.

If you were a ticket holder, I'd understand. But it's pointless to bitch like a weenie over some gift-wrapped MMA.

Fuck you. Dana constantly bashes boxing for doing this exact same thing. The problem is not the replacement, you fucking idiot. What don't you get about that? The problem is that they built such a garbage card around that one fight, that now when something happens to that fight, you're left with this for a main event. Two guys making their ufc debut, one of them NOBODY has ever heard of. The problem is that the next best fight on this card is Ross Pearson vs Ryan Couture, which obviously isn't main event(or co-main) worthy. A co-main event is supposed to be a fight that is capable of being main event, if necessary. Phone Post

Sort of, the Fuel and FX cards are just kind of extra stuff imo. It's the Fox and ppv that really "matter." The ppv since then have all been pretty good and they've started stacking the Fox prelims, probably to have replacements in case fights fall apart Phone Post
Exactly!!! ^^ Phone Post
Yup, some seriously entitled mofos in hrr. It's a free card on a small network. There's a major lack of perspective going on.

Why be so critical? Sit down and either enjoy the fight, or not. Nobody is forcing anybody to watch any of it. Phone Post 3.0
