    UFC 191

    PPV Main Card:
    Mighty Mouse vs. John Dodson II
    Andrei Arlovski vs. Frank Mir
    Rumble Johnson vs. Jimi Manuwa
    Ross Pearson vs. Paul Felder
    Paige VanZant vs. Alex Chambers

    FS1 Prelims:
    John Lineker vs. Francisco Rivera
    Jan Blachowicz vs. Corey Anderson
    Andre Fili vs. Clay Collard
    Joe Riggs vs. Ron Stallings

    Fight Pass Prelims:
    Nazareno Malegarie vs. Joaquim Silva
    Raquel Pennington vs. Opponent TBA

    Please note that this is not the official bout order of the card, but one I have made for the purpose of the thread. Now that all of the bouts for UFC 191 have been confirmed, what would you rate the card? Initially, I was very hard on this card, it came together last minute and for awhile it seemed UFC 192 was going to come together before this was going to, but I'm not mad at the card, it isn't as bad as most initially thought it was going to be, I'll definitely be buying it, I'm hoping Dodson can put MM away this time and I'm always down for a Rumble fight. Linker/Rivera is going to be a war as well. What do you guys think?

    Not a terrible card, but I just don't see much more than 250K-300K buys.

    MM vs Dodson couldn't fill the lobby of a hotel. AA vs Mir is a fight for the hardcore fans so will have some pull with the MMA crowd. Rumble will pull some viewers but a lot of overlap with the AA/Mir fans.

    PVZ might pull in some additional viewers.

    Blachowicz/Anderson is on the main card. Felder/Pearson will probably headline the prelims. It's a good card, I wouldn't say great, but good, I'm looking forward to a few of the matchups quite a bit

    I don't get why people aren't excited. Main card (as put together by Arkridge) is guaranteed to have action, no hugfests or gasfests. Also John Lineker vs Francisco Rivera is fireworks. Andre Fili vs Clay Collard is a nice one too. I guess Blachowicz vs Anderson may deliver if neither is tentative (after their respective losses).

    Good card. You don't have to appreciate only fights with ranked guys.

    Pearson vs. Felder will be super fun. Card looks okay... I think the fact that it's Dodson really helps my excitement.

    Always stoked to see MM fight. Dodson too. Good matchups. Just a fun card but not a card that I'm like counting the days toward or anything. I'll give it a 6.5/10

    How do you know that it is on the main card? It was already confirmed that Lineker/Rivera will headline the prelims.

    Agree.

    But why is Lineker fighting at 135? He was doing well and knocking on the door for a title shot at 125...

    I think itll do better then people will think.

    I will buy it for Mir vs Arlovski alone, a fight ive wanted and waited years to see.

    I'm gonna guess 550K itll be getting a push from momentum the UFC seems to be picking up and I'm sure they will promote this card quite well.

    I'm pretty sure it's confirmed also that Jan/Corey is on the main card, I knew Rivera/Lineker was announced to be on the prelims, I didn't know it was the headliner, if I had to guess though things will change, Felder/Pearson was obviously made at kind of the last minute for this card, so maybe the original plans were to have Rivera/Lineker headline.

    I think the card will look something like this:


    Main Card (PPV)
    Demetrious Johnson vs John Dodson
    Frank Mir vs Andrei Arlovski
    Anthony Johnson vs Jimi Manuwa
    Paige Van Zant vs Alex Chambers
    Jan Blachowicz vs Corey Anderson

    Preliminary Card (FOX Sports 1)
    Paul Felder vs Ross Pearson
    Francisco Rivera vs John Lineker
    Raquel Pennington vs
    Andre Fili vs Clay Collard

    Preliminary Card (Fight Pass)
    Joe Riggs vs Ron Stallings
    Nazareno Malegarie vs Joaquim Silva

    Though I certainly wouldn't be shocked if either the Pennington fight or Fili/Collard headlines the fight pass prelims

    It's about a 7 as a PPV. Would be an 8 if it were a free card.

    I am looking forward to this card more than the previous two,
    I am obviously in the minority however.

    It doesn't suck, but nor is it worth $60 to ME. Mir vs Arlovski = most anticipated bout in my view.

    I wonder if he wins is he going to pull a Gastelum and beg to be able to drop back down.

    It's a fun looking card on paper, but MM/Dodson won't draw many viewers at all. This PPV does not go past 200k buys.

    This is most definitely a PPV for the hardcore fans.

    Didn't Pearson just fight like two weeks ago? He's a busy guy.
