A 6-4 guy making his ufc debut vs a guy who is 0-4 in his last 4 fights is the co main event. This is what we get for $65 from the worlds biggest mma promotion. ( a fight that was on the fight pass prelims originally)

Do you even know who Lando Vannata is? He’s fucking awesome. Always brings it, is never in a boring fight and has a huge fan base. 

 

I agree the the rest of the card is just OK as far as name recognition and in relation to the divisional standings, but we should get some entertaining fights. I agree that $65 is steep, but the co- main isn’t where I have a gripe.

Yes I know who Lando is. Been watching him since his debut and had tony Ferguson on Queer Street. Nothing against Lando he’s an exciting fighter.

Put Cowboy in and let's make it a fight, fight. For real fight. Crack some eggs and legitimize the infamous "Do you want to be a fucking fighter!?" Question you posed over a decade ago on TUF. Quit playing. Let 'em bang, bro. Pay a fine to the commi$$ion leeching assets. Know what it is and never ask forgiveness. Do it. Do it now!

weakest ppv card of all time?


Has to be one of the top five weakest PPV's of all time without looking at them all, has to be.

It would be interesting to see a poll on the subject.

Next weekend's ESPN card is better than tonight's PPV. This stuff happened when UFC got on FOX too.

Dana clearly said in a recent interview when asked why they still do PPV and he basically said because people still buy it.

If people stopped buying PPV then UFC would move to a WWE model or do everything in a cable deal with ESPN/FOX etc... but people keep buying.

Yeah I'm throwing darts in the dark here. I don't know about Crute & 80% of the other fighters to make accurate predictions.
