If these "extra cards" truly had nothing but nobodies on them and had no impact on the "good cards", that would be fine. But that's not how it works.

(And I and others have explained this over and over. Probably 10 times, just from me alone.)
August 23-Bisping vs Le
September 6th-Invicta
September 13th-Arlovski vs Bigfoot
September 20th-Hunt vs Nelson.

Thats four cards in a month kid and the Japan card is amazing. They dont have to purchase just for the one show.

The amount of broke ass sherdoggers living in their parents basement is laughable.

the rest of the card is solid as well. sajewski is an undefeated prospect. doane/iuri are both great fighters.

I mean fuck, Sherdog never stops bitching about how the UFC hates grapplers, so the UFC makes a card with two of the best grapplers on the fucking planet, and people bitch the card is watered down. Get fucking real.

Is it a star studded card? No. Is it a bad card? Maybe if you know nothing about MMA.

Ive found that the "no name" cards end up being the better cards. Guys are getting the spotlight and trying to make a name for themselves. A lot of the big names are aging and losing, sadly.
