    It has to be way up there. The co main is Liz Carmouche FFS.

    I know the fights themselves may actually be good and we may have fireworks but on paper I tell you there is not a single fight on this card I would mind missing.

    The free events have been deteriorating in quality as of late, because of the increase in annual events. I remember the dull undercard that I had to endure before seeing Condit slaughter Kampmann. This event takes the cake though.

    Didnt they say that about fight for troops 1?

    ....and it ended up being the most bloody war filled event in a long time.

    If you think this is bad just stick around, the UFC does this all the time. Whoever has the most badass performance is gonna be the star of the card.

    ...Coleman/Couture is probably gonna win that considering it was a PPV.

    FFTT 3 is pretty bad though... Sapo/Kennedy is def the worst/most perplexing 5 round fight in the history of the UFC.

    Bobby Green vs James Krause

    These guys are legit prospects who will be multiple time bonus winners.

    These fighters have to fight sometime, be it an undercard or fb prelim. This is a free (and gateless) event, what do you expect?

    FYI there are plenty of stacked cards coming up, would you rather these fights watering them down?

    Most boring main event will always be the HW legends fight that had more talking then fighting.

    Would Machida have made it a "good card" by your standards?

    If so.... it's all his fault this FFTT sucks in your eyes.

    No not even close. I think the event that's just been was a lot worse on paper.

    There's some great fights on this card that I'm looking forward to.

    Don't be a 'Borcat'.

    IMO the card as a whole isn't bad but this main event is either there or up there as being quite possibly the worst main event ever.

    I'm looking forward to Mavidal/Khabilov and Burmudez/Siler. Other than that, yes, the card is quite bad.

    Funny thing is there's quality fighters like Camozzi, Larkin, and Edwards on the facebook prelims.
