One thing I wish the UFC would do more...

We all agree there is some level of oversaturation in the UFC's event structure at the moment, and it can be a little exhausting, but one there is one thing I really liked about this events layout. Besides the main/co-main being great fights, having three LW matches on the main card makes it more exciting in my opinion, and I think it helps casuals form a better picture of the division and creates more hypotheticals. The UFC does do this a fair amount when it it comes to putting contenders and champs in a division on the same card, for instance, but I think they should be trying to do it even more with the smaller cards. A divisional top-10 vs. top-10 fight, a couple close matchups in the top 25 of that division, and a prospect match or two on the prelims, that sounds like a good card compared to random divisions at the same rankings.

Dear World, I'm not laughing with you.

Every now and then the UFC stacks cards full of fighters from the same division.

I don't have access to Zuffa's financial statements to know how much they're making/losing on each event but I wish they can do the following:

Free cards like tonight's


The main card of PPVs should feature fighters all on win streaks. If you win on the free cards and put together a good streak, then you should be featured on the main card of a PPV.

Personally, I'm sick and tired of seeing the likes of Dan Henderson (especially before his last fight) put on co-main events of PPV cards.
