    That was the set up for the official UFC 259: Live Weigh-in Show. It's like they are just making fun of themselves.

    On paper this is one of the best cards I've seen in years.

    If all goes well it has potential to be a great card.

    It could go the opposite way though, impossible to gauge these type of things.

    Yes on paper it looks great. But who knows how these fights will turn out. I don't know if this card will live up to the hype, I just hope it comes close to it though.

    It is a good card, no more.
    Problem is that UFC gives so many shitty cards that this one looks great in comparison

    The sad part is this is a typical UFC card back in the day they just smacked titles on there. I like having an event every week but back in the day when there was one PPV every other month those cards were good top to bottom. They also didn't have any shit fighters because they didn't have the events for it. I'm not a good person with knowing which UFC number was what so I typed in UFC 50 and top to bottom MMA fans know who everyone is. They also kept being good close to modern day.

    It's a phenomenal card on paper. It's like 2 decent cards put together.

    This.

    I mean, except main event and maybe co-main, last few PPV cards were weak even for Fight night cards.

    On paper yeah this card is very stacked. Mind you it could turn out to be a dud to watch, but the caliber of fights on this card is fantastic.

    Only in the modern day of massively watered down cards is this anything to be thrilled about. Good card, not great. 3 title fights, but honestly not the most exciting 3. The rest of the card is average at best.

    Low low low standards.

    As far as one of the best in UFC history, that is pretty funny.

    That's a terrible example dude. Patrick Cote main evented that card on his UFC debut, sure we know him now but people didn't know him then.

    A bit of stretch. It's a top 3 stacked card in last the few years.

    It's a very solid card, but lets not get out of hand here.
