    TUF Japan winner who fought to a draw with Hirota. Who takes this one? I liked Ishihara on the Road to Japan show kind of like a Japanese Conor and he knows how to win on points too. Erosa was a decisionator on TUF and I was happy Lobov KO'd him like a clown. Ishihara's hair looks like a 90's Arsenio Hall

    This card has no supporting fights. An outstanding main event, decent co-main, and nothing else.

    2 title fights and you're still whining? If you don't know the names on the card that's your problem.

    UFC 190 sold more PPVs than UFC 189.

    When you have a marquee headliner, you don't need a good supporting cast. It's better to use the supporting cast where it's needed - a card with a weaker main event that would actually see a significant bump with a legit supporting cast. When you have a top level headliner, you're already more or less saturating the hardcore PPV buying fanbase. What's the point of adding extra good fights.

    I agree I just thought it would look more like 189 or 194.

    Conor vs. RDA: hardcore crowd check.
    Holm vs. Tate: casual crowd check.

    It would be stupid to add a strong cast to this. The PPV is guaranteed million plus. Adding a good cast would be wasted efforts with minimal benefits. Much better to save them somewhere else where they're more needed.

    I really hope they add 1/2 more fringe contender fights.

    I agree with this and your first post to an extent but we don't want it to start being like boxing where the only intriguing fight is the headliner.
