    Personally i think this is a great card (although i dont see it getting many buys due to barao's draw). I wish njokuani was higher up the prelim list and i think they should replace varner vs krause with either ferguson vs kikuno or holdsworth vs camus. The top 4 main event fights however will be great, and although it isnt the strongest card the ufc has had, it is still a very good card tbh. I dont think it will get good buys, but i think most should definitely watch it. (mizugaki vs rivera will probably we a war just like lawler and ellenburger would be).

    I don't get why fans want the fights and fighters they like on the prelims to be seen by less people by moving them to the main card.

    it's pretty thin after the 1st 3 fights.
    maybe move the Njokuani up to the 5 spot?

    It does not look like a PPV card to be honest.

    But you have the Floyd Mayweather of MMA Renan Barao on it!

    only difference being the fact almost nobody knows who barao is, which is a shame

    The prelims are a little thin aside from the 3 TUF winner's and Iaquinta (who are all fighting different opponents), but I love the main card.

    All 5 main card fights look to be awesome fights.

    Outside of the Main event, and sometimes the co-main event, the rest of the card placement is largely irrelevant...other than MORE people will see you if you fight on the prelims

    Its a TUF reunion card with 9 fighters associated with it on the card.

    I've been looking forward to this card more than I was 172, I know I'm in the minority with that one.
