    Fight will probably be shit, who cares though. It's pretty much the lowest tier a prelim fight could be considering it's on a free TUF Brazil Finale card.

    Just wait until you see the guys from the show who are like 3-0, 4-0 and naturally 185/205 fighting at heavyweight.

    So what theses guys shouldn't get a chance to be in the UFC because people have never heard of them?

    People acting like this is the co-main event, its just a small pre-lims fights.

    People need to get a chance and start somewhere BUT we are seeing way more od these types of signings and fights. It's labeled UFC and comes at a high price. This global domination PIPE DREAM has ruined the product. FACT JACK

    How has it ruined the product? The only difference now is they're putting on free cards like this in Brazil, Europe, Asia, etc with local/regional fighters. No one is forcing you to watch these cards/fights and it has little to no effect on the big cards. Unless you don't like watching the big names fight for free.

    It has severely weakened the big cards. If you don't see that then I don't know what to tell you. Cards just aren't deep anymore, TONS of filler

    Cards can't be that deep anymore. They used to have 150 fighters that they'd split between 4 shows a year, now they're reaching 500 with 40 shows a year. They're going to need more fighters. The PPVs are still stacked, the main cards on most US Fight Nights and other major areas for UFC are usually pretty stacked. So what if they have some newcomers on the prelims? Usually those are the guys that outperform the veterans as far as excitement goes.

    PPVs aren't stacked. We see fights like OSP vs Jimmo on main cards all the time now. They expect people to pay for that? No wonder buys are in the shitter.

    You don't think someone who is 3-0 in the UFC belongs on the main card?

    In your great opinion, how many wins in a row should you have before you get a main card fight?
