    With 13 official fights, it seems UFC Fight Night 123 from Fresno, CA seems to be complete. Please keep in mind that the bout order for the card has not yet been determined, the one above is simply for the sake of the thread. With that being said, what do you guys think of this card? Not one of the best domestic FN cards. Especially in December, a month the UFC usually stacks from card to card, even for smaller events. I do love the Main Event, that should be awesome. We've also got a last minute matchup between Moraes and Sterling that I really like, much better than the original matchup. Jason Knight is always exciting and we've got some good prospects in Anders and Giles that should have good showings. If I had to rate this card out of 10, I'd give it either a 4/10 or a 5/10. Not the best for a FN card but it is what it is. What do you guys think?

    Wouldn't stay up to watch it (UK) but I'll stream maybe 3/4 of the fights the next day.

    6/10

    For a fight night card, it's acceptable.

    They need Erick SIlva and Artem Lobov to save this card.

    6/10 because the fights look to be entertaining on paper.

    I was going to go but honestly don't feel this card is worth it for ticket price, hotel, etc.

    I watched every UFC card ever (no joke, I don't miss even shit cards) and I have no clue who are half of the guys on the main card.

    Gabriel Benitez
    Luke Sanders
    Eryk Anders
    Markus Perez
    Trevin Giles
    Antonio Braga Neto


    <FookIsThatGuy>

    Who da fook are these guys??

    And you can bet the house Moraes vs Sterling is going to a boring decision.

    Knight vs Moggly is a weird matchup
    Davis vs Carmouche main eventing the prelims is weak too, and I actually like WMMA

    3 names you should watch. Very promising prospects, all 3 of them.

    Nobodies fight the hardest they say, so I‘m ready to give it a 5/10.

    December 16, UFC on Fox. That’s a card for the JBG.
