UFC 53 - Arlovski vs Eilers - 2005
UFC 89 - Bisping vs Leben - 2008
UFC 95 - Sanchez vs Stevenson - 2009
UFC 105 - Couture vs Vera - 2009
UFC 109 - Couture vs Coleman - 2010
Just a few examples, plenty more to go on
Lol, you tried to make a point but UFC 89,95, and 105 were all free!
And UFC 109 had Chael vs. Marquardt (Chael's next fight was against Silva), Thiago vs. Swick, and Maia vs. Miller (Maia's next fight was for the mw belt as well), along with a fun main event for wrestling and older mma fans, not to mention Randy nuthuggers, for which there were many.
UFC 53 was in 2005, and nobody has ever said that was a great card. The difference is that the UFC has since swallowed Pride, Strikeforce, and the WEC.
