So you are saying Reem, Bader, Mousasi and Maia each add substancially more value to cards than "Aldo, KZ, Cub, Edgar, Mendes, Conor, Poirier and Bermudez"

Hahhaha, no.

Duffman hasn't fought since UFC 155! What a joke!

Why is the each part important?

I wasn't comparing those gusy to all the others, it was a one for one comparison.\

This is pathetic and is part of the reason I am not a Heavyweight fan at all. Ronda has defended her best 3 times this year and these guys can't even get 2 fights in before the end of August.

This could also be part of why so many UFC cards are weak. They have a whole weight class not participating.

Thoughts on this?
this is the reason heaps of casual fans are losing interest.

I blame Silva and medical suspensions ... Bet there are top 10 HWs wanting to fight over 3 times a year and can't
