Well, that was the wrong card to watch with a potential new fan.

    THAT was my fathers introduction to the UFC.

    My fault, I guess but holy crap, that crappy card was craptastic!

    He did say that he would give it a second chance next Saturday but he would rather watch old boxing matches.

    lol

    Huh? Yeah on paper a shitty card but ended being some great fights aside from the wmma fight. If u thought that was terrible (for a no name card) ur not a fan or need a new sport to watch.

    If you have fight pass might have been better to show him a selection of fights you know are good.

    I also didn't think that card was really that bad. Some good finishes.

    6 KO's, 1 TKO, 1 Submission.

    Are you blind?
    That card was amazing.

    Pantoja vs Seery was great
    Teymur vs Henry, easy Fight of the Night
    Bofano vs Ward, one of the most bizarre and brutal Knockouts we've seen recently.
    Felder knocking out Stevie Ray with brutal Yoel Romero elbows.

    I repeat myself, are you blind?
    Does anyone have the .gif of Bofano vs Ward? The hip-kinda-toss KO?

    Tha main card wasn't that good, and I'm assuming that's what he watched.
    Three great finishes, three really ass fights.

    I didn't watch the WMMA fights, so I really thought the card was amazing apart from that HW bullshit, but that's just the usual HW bullshit.

    You couldn't have waited 12 days until UFC 214?

    To introduce your dad to MMA with a Fight Night card in Scotland is some Jon Jones level decision making...

    The undercard was fantastic.
    Main card, the finishes were really good but the Heavyweight fight was boring, the WMMA fight was boring, and Marshman vs Ryan James looked like a glorified school yard fight.

    And if you're watching it live, kind of a let down. Stevie Ray/Felder was a holy shit moment, then kind of a letdown fight. Same with Rountree/Bear Jew, next fight kinda took the wind out of my sails.

    Ended on a high note, but really quickly.

    Biggest mma card of the year in 2 weeks, so you choose a Sunday fight card and one headlined by a guy on a 3 fight skid? Just wait until the ppv buddeh

    I totally agree with your post.

    Wanna hear something funny?
    Ryan Janes was the BIGGEST favorite on the card. +485 odds

    lol

    Wtf are you talking about?

    It didn't have any big names outside of Gunni, but as far as quality fights it was damn good. 8 finishes is stellar imo.

    If you want to introduce a new fan show them Edgar/Maynard 2 & 3 and Rory vs Lawler 2.

    Cmon, the heavyweight and WMMA fights were downright embarrassing.

    The main event sucked too.

    Roundtree is a punk.

    These fighters shouldn't be in the UFC.

    You introduced your dad to MMA on a European showcase card?

    Come on.

    Jones vs DC
    Woodley vs Maia
    Ruthless vs Cowboy.

    Enough said. Should have waited for Saturday.

    The fights were pretty good.

    Maybe your da is too old school?

    You dont too many chances with the oldies, they already dont like it without even watching it.

    Sunday European card with the weakest co-main on earth and a bunch of "who the fook is that guy" filling the rest

    uh, no. he was the heavy underdog, with odds up to 5.00. if you bet on him, you could potentially make 5 times more
