How is the UFC planning to get their overseas fans to pay for flights and tickets if they give them only horrible cards? I understand to create interest in the sport from former non-fans and casuals in new markets it doesn't matter who fights. But for those who already follow the UFC and watch the big events a card with a main event that would normally not even be the co main but at best the third fight on an American card (Gus-Manuwa, Munoz-Mousasi, Conor-Miller, Maia-Shields etc) and then a lot of guys who aren't even ranked is notz really hot shit. They say they wanna build regional stars and that's all good. But how can Gunnar Nelson or Luke Barnatt become regional stars if they never fight ranked opponents? The point is, as a fan you know they aren't getting close to a title shot, their fight are meaningless rankingwise. And yes, ofc fans pay because of the meaning of fights for the rankings.
