    This card lacks major star power. Not PPV worthy.

    Top 4 fights would make a killer FOX card.

    It just seems to me like the UFC mailed it in with this card.
    The FS1 prelims are the worst I've ever seen for a PPV. And the PPV isn't worth $60. It will do under 150k which is sad

    This looks like a fox card from last year.

    I'd say yes.

    MM is a beast and is fun too watch. Baguatinov is a tough dude.

    Woodley vs Rory is very interesting and probably sets up the next contender.

    Plus the Return of AA.

    It's a 7 on paper.

    It's not a strong PPV, but it's better then what we got in Winnipeg this time last year. I'll probably talk myself into getting it last minute.

    No. It's decent for a Fox card but not PPV worthy. I'm sure some will come in here to say that it is PPV worthy because the fights "could" end up being great.

    Worst PPV in a loooong time. Not even due to the lack of star power but the lack of intriguing matchups. The Bellator PPV looks amaing compared to this one. I wont be dropping a dime.

    Yeah, not even Abu Schuabi can carry this card on his own. I'll still attend my local watering hole to watch Arlovski get shutdown and MightyMouse make me some more easy money :D

    Here's the main card from mighty mouse vs dodson

    Mighty mouse vs Dodson
    Glover vs Quinton Jackson
    Pettis vs Cerrone
    Koch vs lamas.

    Bader was also on the undercard .

    So why exactly is this next one a PPV?

    It's very weak at the top in terms of drawing power, even though it could be a very good fight. Having Arlovski vs Schaub 4th from top makes it kind of a deep card though. Not deep enough to make up for how weak the top is on paper though.

    I would buy just to see Johnson defend his title again, but the rest of the card is mediocre at best. Rory/Woodley is a poor excuse for a co-main event (another example of the UFC trying to shove sub-par WWs down fans' throats), and I couldn't care less about Schaub/Arlovski. The two LHW fights are decent, sensible matchups but don't have the most talented fighters.

    The undercard is pretty much entirely filler. Btw, Sarafian is fighting Kunimoto, not Kikuno. Too bad, I would actually rather watch Sarafian fight Kikuno, despite the size difference.

    It's a decent enough card but lacking of stars as some have said. Arlovski v Schaub might be fun though, pretty sure AA's glass jaw will be his undoing again.
