    Understandable. ESPN does not want to waster airtime on Haermansson, who will likely get slaughtered.

    That sounds like a promotion more than a demotion

    No more PPVs on cable. Removing fight nights from cable

    We paid attention to how shitty Game of Thrones ratings were being able to watch it on your couch with a remote. No way in hell we're going to make it that simple. Please submit $5 to get the rest of our opinion and a WMMA commercial.

    I understand why two grapplers who haven’t even been champs before wouldn’t be what you’d want to spend air time on

    I'm not shocked but it's really no one's fault. I mean the original fight was Yoel Romero vs. Paulo Costa. Now we have Jacare vs. Hermansson, which is loads better than Jacare vs. Camozzi 3.

    Y’all have no clue who Jack Hermansson is do you?
     
  11. That’s not the problem. The point is ESPN doesn’t and has shown no effort to care

    That's pretty dumb to drop a card down because of one guy. When did Romero become a ratings superstar?

    Really doesn't matter much to me as they both air on TSN here.

    War Jack My Boy!!!!!

    I don't blame them. Jacare/Hermansson is not a ESPN caliber main event, especially that timeslot on a saturday night. will likely air nba playoffs instead

    how do you go from Cain/Ngannou & Gaethje/Barboza to Jacare/Hermansson, and then back to Woodley/Lawler. Obviously one of those events doesn't belong

    Two guys.

    Both of the main event fighters are gone. UFC is lucky they didn’t just take it out behind the barn and put the whole card out of it’s misery.

    There are so many fighters and not everyone is a name even if one half a major bout is. I was wondering how ESPN would eventually handle a card like this and there it is. It will be interesting to see future cards based on main/co-main. Wonder how much of it has to do with insane number crunching like what UFC does with fighter's social media.

    Wat two guys? Jacare is still on the card. They literally moved it because of Yoel and that is crazy

    Romero has always gotten a lot of advantages from the UFC and their confederates. Maybe it has something to do with that.

    I’m taking this as a positive sign about the flexibility of the ESPN deal. My hope is that a PPV like UFC 234 would more easily be converted into a regular ESPN+ show on short notice.
