Main card is pretty garbage honestly. Couldn't care less about Holm/Pennington as co-main, neither are winning a belt. Oleinik vs Greene? Gadelha vs Grasso is lukewarm at best...neither will win a belt. Pettis vs. Ferreira should be fun but a pretty shit card overall.

 

This is a Conor showcase card on par with fight night filler fights. Weak.

Most of what you say is true but I'm still excited to see this fight. For years in boxing all that drew people out to watch was the main event. Think of it that way.

Prelims are decent and could be it's own Fight Night, but I agree with you. Overall card isn't so good for a PPV. Would make for a really good Fight Night at best.

I really wish Dana would do an all women's card to FINALLY realise that not many people give a shit about their fights.

It would be the lowest PPV in modern history, and yet two fights in this main card are WMMA bouts. I really don't get it...

Most lame card in a long while. (Though I'm super hyped for the main bout).

I get that they think Conor's name will sell any card, but this is the type of fight that brings in the casuals (my main crew all tell me they have friends who want to join), so it's too bad
they have to wade through a limp card up to the main bout. It sells the UFC much more if a number of the fights have importance and hype.

They are going to sell because of conor. UFC probably doesn't want to waste good fights on a card that's going to sell pps anyway.

The thing is, most of Conor's previous cards have been pretty stacked, the one exception maybe being the first Diaz card. I don't know what they were thinking with this one.

I agree, but ufc probably feels they can still sell ppvs with just conors name. We're about to find out. If it doesn't sell well, they can probably use that against conor in future negotiations.

Don't forget this is the card they decided to bump the price up too.

They realized how shitty it was, so they decided to raise the price to counter the loss in buys.

Holm vs Pennington as co-main is comical

They're cheap card fillers. Most don't get paid much more than the UFC minimum and casual fans get off on it. A lot dig Wmma because they don't know how to identify skilled fighters. They just appreciate girls acting aggressive because they're stupid and it's not a traditional female role. 

 

Same reason guys guys act like hard 6's are supermodels because they fight. 

I hate how little some fighters get paid, but for fucks sake, why not give the main card opportunity and all exposure that comes with it to some hungry, up and coming fighter. And make them the 'cheap card fillers'. 

WMMA just shits on events like this, and I know some people disagree but I honestly can't get invested in sub amateur MMA. Especially when there is so much talent around the world. It isn't the fault of the fighters of course, and I respect every one of them, but the UFC dropped the ball on this. 

Nunes is a one in a million, or maybe that's how far WMMA will progress in the near future, but until that time keep them off the main card!

I just wish the two women fights were at the beginning so i could just begin to watch the main card one hour late.

Way better than 248. WMMA Has no business on any PPV mixed in with men's fights

Didn't Holm just fight and get KOd last UFC? 

I vaguely recall Holm v Pennington 1 being a complete snooze fest.
