    They are pulling in more numbers than the actual main event.nobody wanted to see the DC Stipe rematch other than the people that say Stipe got eye poked and Stipe acting like a baby losing which ultimately got him the fight.the fight is likely going to be another quick 1st round ko or a domination by dc. Meanwhile Pettis vs Diaz is likely to be fotn even foty.

    Diaz/Pettis is the more intriguing fight, but a non-title fight will never main event over a title fight.

    A 3 round non title fight, between a guy who is 1-0 at welterweight and a guy who hasn't fought in 3 years, should take priority over a Heavyweight title fight?

    And Stipe did get eyepoked, like 3 times, including mere seconds before DC clocked him on the same side of the face he just poked him.

    It's not rocket science, but even Sherdog posting is too hard for some of you.

    You have a title fight with arguably the best UFC HW of all time vs another who's one of the best HWs ever skills wise. This is a huge fight so no Pettis/Diaz is not the main event.

    Over a rematch of the two most storied heavyweights in UFC history... But I guess you can make a claim, small one, being over Yoel vs Costa.

    I have a hunch, just a small one don't ask me why but that TS is a Diaz fan.

    Nate is obviously carrying the card

    "Main event" countdown can't even get half the views

    I'm more interested in nate/pettis but they shouldn't headline that card.. they should headline a fight night to give the fans the 5 rounds that fight deserves..

    Potentially great fight..

    True, but that wasn't by original design. Conor was supposed to fight RDA for the LW belt as the originally scheduled main event and RDA got injured.

    Doesn't matter, we've seen fights demoted when their opponents changed. Conor will always be main event over any title fights.

    Paulo Costa vs. Yoel Romero is the real main event of UFC 241.

    Gotta agree...

    Ufc as much of a sports entertainment as wwe n main event should be the most anticipated fight.

    In this case it’s Pettis vs Nate

    Yes, "when their opponents changed" key words. That is not the scenario at hand, thus Diaz vs Pettis would never main event over a title fight. Conor is an instagram model now and not relevant to the conversation at hand. However, the fact that you acknowledge that other fights have been demoted is backing up the fact that non-title fights do not main over title fights with the exception of Conor.

    I really don't care, eyepokes happen. But to have video evidence of it, and have someone say it didn't happen, is fake news.

    Did it change the fight? No one knows. But DC did poke Stipe's eyes multiple times and received multiple warnings.

    So?

    Ufc 200 was originally suppose to be Conor vs Diaz 2.

    Then it got changed to Cormier vs jones 2 n then

    The main event became Nunes vs Tate with Cormier vs Anderson Silva being a mid card fight.

    I'm sure if Just Bieber vs CM Punk was on the card, it's countdown would greatly exceed and other fight. Would that make it more of a main event then a HW title fight? Remember, this isn't AGT or any other talent contest that's based on votes.
