Main-Card

Urijah Faber vs. Scott Jorgensen
Kelvin Gastelum vs. Uriah Hall - "TUF 17" tournament final
Miesha Tate vs. Cat Zingano
Travis Browne vs. Gabriel Gonzaga
Robert "Bubba" McDaniel vs. Gilbert Smith

Pre-lims

Kevin Casey vs. Josh Samman
Luke Barnatt vs. Collin Hart
Dylan Andrews vs. Jimmy Quinlan
Clint Hester vs. Bristol Marunde

We got 2 guys on the main card (Bubba & Gilbert) who both got finished in their fights. Bubba got choked out by Kelvin and knocked out by Uriah, while Gilbert got knocked out by Luke. YET they're both on the main card??? What gives; why are two of the shows biggest losers on the main card over guys like Luke, Dylan and Josh?

Does Dana owe Jones any favors? Bubba matches up really well against Gilbert.

DanGold - I don't like him, but Josh definitely deserves to be on the main card.

They want a finish off the bat on the live card to keep the attention of the general public.

Hope they don't try to play it safe thus a boring fight in hopes of landing a job in the ufc. Dana should give them a pep talk about being a fighter and beating off the other guy.

This.

I honestly think Dana owes Jones something. They couldn't give Bubba the King again so they matched him up with someone similar. Gilbert and Casey are pretty much the same fighter; both don't have much in stand up but both are very good on the ground. Also similar builds.

It's likely that the loser of this fights are getting fired. They are given both those guys the chane to remain in the organization.


Obviously beeing in Jones's camp if working out great for Bubba

Yeah how is this logical?

Josh and Dylan deserve what is essentailly a concellation prize fight here on the main card.

 

What is the UFC seriously thinking Bubba has drawing power?

ANd How do they figure GILBERT of all people deserves a main card spot, didn't he try and lay his way to victory and got caught?

 

At least put another exciting fighter like Clint, who the fuck arranged this stupid lineup?

Usually hate these threads, but I have to agree with this one. I don't see how you couldn't to be honest. Neither of the semi finals losers are on the main card, but quarter final losers are. Phone Post

In the UFC's eyes:

TUF 17 quarter final losers > TUF 17 Semi final losers

Silly season. Dillon or Josh are obviously better choices for the main card. JBJ must've pulled some strings of something. Phone Post 3.0
