Tim Boetsch on the main card is even worse. He should be 0-5.

This is one of the worst things UFC does, they are bad at making the lineups.

It makes sense when its on FS1 as a PPV or Fox prelim, they want a bigger fight as main event of prelims but on FS2 whats the point?

I get they want incentive for you to watch prelims on FS2, if the 6 best fights are on FS1 why even watch the prelims on FS2 but when a fight is between two top guys fighting for a title shot shouldnt it be on the main card so more people see it?

TO me McMann/Murphey and Formiga/Fun Size shoudl be on the main card.

Not a lot of people have FS2 and it's a shame Jussier and Fun Size are on the prelims. Not only is it an important fight in the division, but stylistically it's one of the best fights on the card.

Bit harsh putting Mcmann on FS2 to..
Exactly, it makes sense for prelims on FS1 leading into a Fox or PPV card but on FS2 whats the point? This is a div that isnt that popular and this is a fight that should determine the next contender and now 200k people tops will see it.

Honestly, I remember not being excited to see Makovsky fight in Bellator for free, so I'm not going to complain. It is what it is.

A little more than one week to go and they have sold about 1/2 of the tickets. They will be giving away tickets and never come to Bangor, ME again.

In November 2013, in Portland, 120 miles from Bangor, they had about 3,000 for a local boxing show. Roberto Duran signed autographs.

New England fights, a regional MMA promotion, has had 2,500-3,000 for shows in Lewiston, Maine, about 100 miles from Bangor.

In the 1990,s over 6,000 attended a boxing show featuring Lewiston native Joey Gamache, who was briefly a WBA champion.

A variety of musical acts are drawing 10,000 +/- for concerts on the waterfront near the Cross Center in Bangor.
