    I just wanted to get your opinions on the return of Fight Night cards on Fox Sports 1. Share your opinion on the strength of the cards, individual fights, and how quickly they're being pumped out. Personally, it's surprising how stacked all these cards remain to be regardless of how often they're being schedule. If anything, it shows how deep the UFC roster is. Some people may not find these cards have enough "star power" but they're amazing MMA events for free TV and on a Wednesday night when you have nothing else to do for that matter. Here they are for the people who haven't had a look yet. What do you guys think?

    So am I. Was pissed when I saw Rony Jason vs. Jeremy Stephens was cancelled though. I was looking forward to that one the most. If Rony won, he could have made a case for a top 10 fight. Although I wanna see him and Brandao battle it out for a crack at top 10.

    Is Brandao gonna be ready for this card? I heard he hurt his hand during his last fight. If not Brandao, Yahya would kind of make sense too.

    edit : I like the 3 cards, maybe FN 30 a little more than the others. Fight for the troop 3 misses a co main event though, the main event being cancelled for some reason within a few weeks of the event would kill the card completely imo.

    He said he thought it was broken, but no medical news came back so I'm assuming it wasn't too bad. But yeah, Brandao vs. Yahya would be good too. All 3 of them are contending for top 10 status.

    Haha. Can you tell I'm a Brandao fan? I mean, he might be? I'm pretty sure they just opted to drop the bout all together though.

    gotta go maia vs shields (for both silvas thiago and eric plus palhares vs pierce is cool)
    then the fight for the troops looks good machidas debut at mw is cool plus masvidal is fun to watch
    bisping vs munoz last dont care about the main event but guillard vs pearson should be a barn burner

    I love the depth of the Troops card. So for that reason id probably go 31>30>29

    Not all that interested in any Jake Shields fights at this point.

    id like to see another fight added to both the UK and Brazil card. I know the Brazil card is 3 weeks away but if they squeezed a BW or FLW fight in there id be happy.

    Kinda sucks the UK card is gonna end up on FS2, i hate watching fights with no HD.

    UFN 30 is what I'm looking forward to.

    All 3 are very stellar cards top-bottom considering they're free.

    I'm looking forward to seeing the bout order on 31 and 32. See what makes main card and what doesn't.

    Totally agree with you TS...excellent thread by the way. These cards are well put together and for us MMA fans, it doesn't get any better than watching all this go down on free TV.

    Yes, I just saw Stephens was also injured on mmajunkie. But Pierce will get to school Paul Harris on the maincard now so its all good.

    Appreciate it. Having so many cards so often is really cool. Great time to be an MMA fan.
