    thats a good ppv, why are you confused by the order? i see no issues except replacing the (anderson vs jan) fight with felder vs pearson or lineker vs rivera

    Riggs fighter should be higher, despite the fact he's on the verge of getting cut

    Felder vs Pearson is a potential action packed fight reserved for kicking off a PPV or headlining the prelims

    You reserve a fight like that for the headlining spot of the prelims to entice people into buying the PPV

    What in the blue hell is Corey Anderson vs. Jan Blachowicz doing on the main card over Lineker/Cisco?

    Is it because he's a tuf winner? Corey got destroyed in his last fight and Jan had a bad performance to, then they get a promotion to the main card of a PPV?

    Yeah, I'm confused as to why Anderson/Blackowitz is higher than PVZ's fight.

    Take out Corey Anderson and put in Cisco/Lineker and I might consider buying it.


    But just on principle, I'm not buying this shit now.

    That's not a bad main card. Except for the actual main event, I may actually watch it.:)

    PVZ has "proven" that she can have action packed fights.

    You want to start the show with a bang. Anderson/Blackowitz haven't "proven" that yet.

    Great card, on paper at least. Let's hope it delivers.

    Starting the main card off with a squash match.

    As long as Paige gets a healthy amount of top control time everything will be OK in the world.

    Lol no. That would make no sense from a business perspective. Riggs is on the verge and PVZ is a popular prospect they are trying to make into a star. There's no way they bury her on the fight pass prelims. If anything they should have put her as the prelims headliner to draw more eyes. I don't expect a MM card to do that well.

    they always headline the prelims with a good fight that is usually better than what starts the ppv.

    At least PVZ is a good prospect a lot of people like to watch. More main card worthy than a Beastin 25/8 tbh

    So that means tune in 30 minutes after the PPV have started.

    Paige is 5-1 with one meaningful win. Its delusional to call that a squash match.
