I just noticed that besides this solid main event, they didn't put zero nor one but TWO women bouts on the main card? 2 out of 5?

Are WMMA really a draw? I can't stand 95% of them. The talent level is so low. What other major sport forcefeeds this to its fans?

It's a good thing this thread has been made as nothing like this has ever been discussed.

Oh yeah. Every thread here is all time original.

I'm talking about THIS card dumdum. There's not been many main cards with two women bouts, and IIRC belts were on the line when it happened. Now it's just fillers while they have a gigantic roster.

The answers are 1. No they are not a draw unless they are called Rousey, Carano or Nunes. And 2. No other sport force feeds this to it's fans - simply because the majority of fans don't want it.

Conor is fighting.

 

That means in their eyes its "instantly stacked"  

 

Now slap some women on the main so they feel they are getting their proper shine and BOOM......you just killed 2 birds w one stone. 

Fans are happy to see conor. 

Women get main carded.

Your faggotry has been discussed at length by everyone you know, doesn't mean it isn't true and shouldn't be talked about.

This has to be the worse PPV main card in a long time. They didn't even try.

I'll be streaming this card instead of paying for it. 2 WMMA fights on a main card is an instant nope from me.

This makes sense. Card sells regardless of the undercard.
And, no one else on the card will make 6 figures on the night.

putting boring WMMA fights on the main card is actually a reverse psychology strategy to make the main event more exciting in comparison.

 

It's like that old trick that girls use. They get two uglier friends to go out with them so they look really hot by comparison.

Only good thing about WMMA is betting the fights go the distance, hits more often than not.

The card is a pile of shit outside of Conor vs Cowboy and Pettis vs Ferreira.

I am a UFC and Dana nut hugger but WMMA on UFC PPV at all is a fucking abomination.
 

It is so shit even the UG egalitarian hipster fags are sick of WMMA. It needs to go to its own league ASAP

Well, I think Grasso's the only one who shouldn't be on the main card. Consider this:

- Holm: Has finished 1 of her last 7 opponents.

- Pennington: Has finished 1 of her last 7 opponents.

- Gadelha: Has finished 1 of her last 7 opponents.

- Grasso: Has finished 0 of her last 7 opponents.

.

As you can see, she's not a finisher like the other gals. Talk about harshing the buzz surrounding the best card of 2020 so far!

Don't watch. Pretty simple solution. Or you can cry on the internet forum about it like a bunch of menstruating women.

2 chick fights for no belts too. Zzzzzzzzz....

I agree with the guy who posted before that is betting them to go the distance, that's the move

Yes, but consider this:

Current prop odds for those two barnburners yield the following returns on investment:

- If you bet "fight goes to decision" for the Holm fight, a $100 bet will win you only $21.

- If you bet "fight goes to decision" for the Gadelha fight, a $100 bet will win you only $38.

Not much of a profit, especially when you realize there might be a fluke ending and one of these chicks actually finishes her opponent.

It's smart business.  They keep their overhead down by putting on nobodies that they pay next to nothing. McGregor will make money anytime he fights.  So this way they maximized their profit for this show.  Why add more cost when in reality it won't make much of a difference.  You think people are paying to see Cerrone?  What was the highest pay per view last year without McGregor?  They can stack a card from top to bottom.  Mcgregor beats them every time all by himself.
