    __________________________________________________________

    With 13 official fights, it seems UFC Fight Night 120 in Norfolk, VA is complete. Please keep in mind that the bout order for this card is not set and the one above is simply for the sake of the thread. With that being said, what do you guys think of this card? One of the better Fight Night's we've had for awhile in my opinion. A real banger of a card for the hardcore fans. Pettis vs. Poirier is an awesome Main Event. Brown vs. Sanchez is a weird matchup but its bound to be a barn burner. Dodson vs. Moraes is an awesome fight as well. It's a damn good card if you ask me, the Main Card and Prelims as well have fights that I'm interested in seeing. Norfolk is getting a damn good event. If I had to rate this card, I'd give it an 8.5/10. What do you guys think?

    For a fight night card it's 8.5/10. Many JBG matches on this card.

    I don't like cage level tickets. Looking through a fence is pretty shitty. When I go to events I opt for tickets raised just above the cage. You're still incredibly close, close enough to greatly enhance the experience, but you're looking into the cage instead of through it. Trust me.

    This is PPV level by current standards, I mean I've actually heard of at least 4 of the fighters!

    I really hope Dodson doesn't employ the strategy he's been using lately of just circling his opponent landing just enough to edge out rounds. I want the aggressive Dodson we saw when he first got into the UFC post TUF.

    For a modern day FN card, I have tongue this a 10 out of 10.

    Overall I'll give it 7.5, compared to a 10 out of out 10 like UFC 205

    13-17 rows up is ideal in my experience.

    Sadly, I also think he will do the same
    Moraes should use MM's strategy to UD him, guy has all the tolos to do it

    I firmly believe FS1 cards should be rated on a completely different scale than PPVs. They're never going to be the same quality.

    The usual scale is: PPV -- FOX -- FS1 -- Fight Pass

    He should definitely use those powerful leg kicks to try and slow Dodson down

    5/10, few matches that interest me but nothing I'd go out of my way to watch.
