    It should have been on the main card. Lentz looked fantastic. Great fight.

    Because the UFC tiers its card, 3 different cards in one, they want a prelim Fight Pass main event, fights that fans are interested in on the tv prelims then the main card.

    This isnt anything new.

    Well, they should stop. I have no interest in watching Soa Palelei fight ever. Don't put him on the main card so I'm forced to watch Eddie Wineland in shitty SD on Fox Deportes. Wineland isn't even the 'main event' of the prelims either.

    They really don't need a "main event" for Fight Pass prelims.

    I didnt say you have to like or agree with it but he asked why, that is the reason.

    Same with PPV or any other card, same with Bellator putting MVP on the PPV but Kongo and Volkov/Ivanov or Pitbull/Held was gonna be on the prelims.

    The top few fights sell the card, PPV, Fox card, main card. They want you to buy FIght Pass, they want you to watch prelims on SPike, FS1 or FS2.

    If they just put the 6 best fights on the main card fans can not buy FP and maybe skip the prelims.

    So they mix it up, they give you 3 or 4 main fights on the main card, put one on Fight Pass, one or two on prelims.

    Its been discussed a million times why is this fighter not on the PPV main card but this fight is.

    Probably to entice people into getting Fight Pass.
