Ufc 172

This is an amazing fight card that I will be ordering but anyone else a bit confused about the main card?

According to wikipedia, Saffedine vs Ellenberger will not be on the PPV...anyone else thinks this is a bit odd?

Not sure why people care about the the order of the PPV unless you don't don't have FS1 or FS2.

Yea, I saw that too on UFC 171 card. Thats insane! 2 top 10 WW's not on the main card. I actually thought their fight was gonna be the Co-Main event. I guess on the plus side, this is gonna be the most stacked televised prelims in some time.

Yeah, this makes absolutely no sense at all. This fight needs to be on the main card, that's all there is to it.

I agree with you if you're a customer that's going to order every card anyway. I'm not that customer anymore(used to order everyone).

I pick and choose which events I order now based on the strength of that main card, which is what costs the most money. I like the looks of the whole 172 but I'll have to decide if I'm going to order it - if they put the 5 best fights on there they'd get my money for sure. Small chance I just watch the prelims and read the results of the main PPV. I know I'm in the minority though. They probably don't risk that much by not putting the 5 strongest fights on there.
