    This was a main card fight, although some are suggesting this wasn't the strongest card of the year in the first place.

    Real question is, how has Alvey not been cut yet ?

    Nobody is more vocal than Sam Alvey about fighters not deserving better pay so they have to keep that brain dead mouthpiece around.

    This was one of the few fights I was looking forward to seeing this Saturday. Sam is always entertaining

    Big Sam Alvey fan! Def disappointing but at least it’s not Sam pulling out so hopefully he gets another shot in the ufc.

    I think they're treating his fight with Da Un Jung as a three fight winning streak.

    To be fair, the draw was BS.

    I'll never understand why fighters wait until fight week to figure out any potential visa issues they might have.

    This card is still way better than Bellator though, bro. Anything UFC is automatically better than Bellator just cause it’s UFC, bro. I’ll be watching this over Bellator on Saturday cause UFC is the top promotion and nobody else has good fighters, bro.

    I've actually got first hand experience of this.

    My best, most reasonable guess is fighters generally aren't too wealthy, so don't want to risk spending money on a fight that might not take place.

    Potentially down to the sheer insecurity of their position as self-employed athletes, effectively.

    I'll never understand how an international sports promotion that believes itself to be "neck and neck with soccer" doesn't mediate these processes to both assist their athletes and better facilitate a smooth operation.

    Amateur hour as usual at the UFC.

    Imagine Manchester United signing a foreign star, but then telling them they need to take (and fund) 20 different 'pre-season' medicals and sort their own visas.

    It looks like Shamil Abdurakhimov and Chris Daukaus is off as well, predictable loss with that one.
