    Deiveson x Perez. Very good fight. High level.
    Not by any means a main event of a PPV though. Maybe a Co- Main but that might be a stretch as well.

    Shevchenko x Maia - Although I hate WMMA , Bullet is a phenomenal fighter and she's one of the few women I enjoy watching fight. That said, Valentina facing Maia is not worthy of a Co Main spot and maybe not even a third fight (from the top) spot. Dissapointing.

    Perry x Means. Fun scrap. These guys are gonna throw down and it will be violent.. However, this isn't worthy of being so high on the card. I could see this this fight being an opener to a main card .

    Chookagian x Cavillo - Worthless trash. This isn't worthy of being on a main card in UFC Idaho. Garbage.

    Shogun x Craig - I'm happy for Shogun to still be getting wins and a little recognition this far into his career but this isn't worthy of being on the main card either.

    There you have it folks. The card is alright. I won't call it worthless garbage but it's a 5.6 - 6 / 10
    Not one fight on here is worthy of the slot it's been put in.

    1 fight is very good.
    2 fights are decent
    1 is ok
    1 is worthless trash.

    Holy shit, Katlyn Chookagian is already back for another fight? Just last month, she got finished by Jessica Andrade via body blows. That's a fast turnaround.

    The prelims are better than the main card. Not kidding.

    Honestly the line between PPVs and Fight Night/ESPN cards is pretty blurry these days. Once in a while you get a UFC *** PPV that's completely stacked and worth the $$$ but those are few in between.

    The difference in quality between paid PPVs and free cards is not as drastic as it was about a decade ago. A lot of paid and free cards are pretty much on par these days with a rare exception here and there.

    It's a mediocre Fight Night card.

    The PPV itself would be a lot better with Moreno vs Royval instead of Means vs Perry. Although I can understand wanting to showcase Moreno vs Royval on TV and hide Perry behind a paywall.

    Figueiredo vs Garbrandt and Shevchenko vs Calderwood would have been much more interesting. Hell, I would have preferred Figueiredo vs Moreno and Royval vs Perez when CoGar dropped out. Even Shevchenko vs Calvillo would be an upgrade.

    Sure it's worth it but I'm an addict and don't much fuss or care.

    Absolutely not. There is maybe 3-5 PPVs a year at max that is worth their horrendous price.

    It's really bad but it still beats Conor v Cowboy, Holm v Pennington 2, Oleynik v Greene, Kelleher v Osbourne and Pettis v CDF

    no. neither is ufc 256 coming up after it.

    imo only ufc ppvs that have been worth it looking at the whole card from top to bottom have been.
    - ufc 249 gaethje vs tony
    - ufc 251 usman vs masvidal
    - ufc 253 izzy vs costa (this was actually only worth it to see izzy emasculate costa after the fight and sherdog get really butthurt about it)
    - ufc 245 khabib vs gaethje
