    ______________________________________________

    Please keep in mind that the bout order for this card has not yet been determined. This one is simply for the sake of the thread. What do you guys think of UFC Fight Night 94 live from Hidalgo (where?), Texas. I like the looks of a lot of the Main Card fights, the top 3 should all be very exciting and end in some quality finishes. I'm excited to see if Poirier can continue his strong run at 155 and Uriah Hall vs. Derek Brunson should be very competitive with the winner getting a significant step up in competition. I give this card a 6/10 rating. What do you guys think?

    Decent fights on the card but nothing too special. Solid 6/10.

    Nice main event and co main. Truijllo/Evans should be fun but im excited for Belal Muhammad's fight aswell after the Jouban fight.

    7/10 because of the main and co-main events. Not bad for free TV though.

    The top 3 fights really interest me but the rest of the card is just decent, will watch like every other card of course.

    5.5/10.

    3/10. I'm using 1 as the worst UFC card, not the regional shit on my public access channel.

    Edit: but I do remember the name

    Has a few good matchups and should be fun.

    Really intrigued with Wade-Makhachev. Was so pissed of when Islam got KTFOed in his last fight.

    Main and Co Main are really good. Dunham-Trujillo should be good.

    5 maybe 6 outa 10, not terrible but far from great. Dunham is going to annihilate Trujillo.

    Doesn't have much depth like a lot of recent cards, but the big fights are great stylistic matchups. I'd go 7/10 maybe.

    You get MMA on your Public Access channels? All I ever get is some fat black lady talking about how good her kids are doing in school.

    Pretty average 4/10

    I like watching Dunham and Dustin fight so I am very interested in those two fights.

    I think Trujillo is gonna knock him out but he spaces when put on his back so I could definitely see Dunham winning it but I've never really been all that impressed with his TDs.

    I just think he is on another level than Trujillo, Trujillo is too one dimensional.

    Man I would totally watch that, the most exciting thing I've ever seen on Public Access was this guy who looked like a older slightly chubbier Tom Hanks making bird houses and smoking cigars.

    Will be action-packed, because the fights mostly feature dynamic fighters, often from both sides. The only stinker I can think of is Carneiro vs Robertson, because it will be mainly grinding and stalling from Carneiro.

    Depth wise I would have liked to see one more solid fight on the Main Card. I know Derrick Lewis has been lobbying for a quick turnaround the last couple of weeks. He would of been a nice addition to the trend of explosiveness at the top of this Main Card, lol.
