    I don't see any fights that interest me besides from Swanson vs. Kawaljiri (Early prelims, wtf) and the main event even though its a promising prospect vs. an inconsistent prospect. Rest of the fights are between journeymen or people that i have never even heard of. Might not even watch the fights aside from main event (possibly)

    What do you sherbros think?

    Yeah, it is probably a "weak" lineup for even the most ardent fans. Casuals have probably not even heard of most of the participants.

    I think the mindset behind the domestic Fight Night events moving forward is to feature up and coming fighters who are not yet in the PPV or Fox pay grade.

    It also allows for some pretty modest ticket pricing to attend these events.

    Good business model, and is often mentioned, these cards are the ones that seem to deliver fireworks. Overall, the card still has some good match-making. I will be watching.

    A few mildly intriguing fights but for the most part infinitely skippable in terms of 'live' viewing on the night.

    I think they're just testing out their brand.

    Seeing how much a UFC FN card brings in the views without any big names.

    At least 1/2 of these should be decent enough.....

    Did you watch 200 & 201 ?? - Do you think those $60 PPV's were actual barnburners...? They blew chunks overall.

    Every card is the weakest card in awhile. Probably ever.
