    Am I the only one who thinks that UFC 202's main card value has just consistely diminished? (This is coming from a huge Conor fan) If you don't think so explain why.

    The PPV main card is scheduled as follows...

    Conor McGregor vs Nate Diaz II
    Anthony Johnson vs Glover Teixiera
    Donald Cerrone vs Rick Story
    Hyun Gyu Lim vs Mike Perry
    Tim Means vs Sabah Homasi

    The original bouts that were scheduled were Hyun Gyu Lim vs Sultan Aliev and Tim Means vs Sean Strickland which were fairly decent fights but both guys fell out and now they are replaced with Mike Perry and Sabah Homasi? For a PPV main card? That is just mind blowing to me.

    Conor McGregor vs Nate Diaz II
    Anthony Johnson vs Glover Teixiera
    Donald Cerrone vs Rick Story
    Cody Garbandt vs Takeya Mizugaki
    Neil Magny vs Lorenz Larkin

    Last 3 fights make up for it.
    Conor beats Nate and we will witness hundreds of sherdoggers turning into McGregor fans all of the sudden.

    Either AJ will brutally KO Glover or Glover will win eventually by being a warrior that he is and finding a way to sneak in that RNC

    And Cerrone... We all know what a beast he is

    It's nice. Of course, with Condit/Maia and without the injuries it would have been great.

    Still a really stacked card, I'm excited for it.

    Also some fights on the prelims I'm looking forward to. Magny vs Larkin, & Randa vs Casey.

    Lol if you think anyone that pays for PPVs is buying it cause of anything other than the main event.

    The main card is still good in the sense we still get to see HGL & Dirty Bird fight.

    Sure they're against newbs but you never know how well these guys fight until they throw down. Could very well be barn burners or one sided beat downs, so suspend your expectations let it play out.

    Also there are hella good fights on the card its just that someone has to headline the prelims and you gotta sacrifice a little for the "importance" of the undercard.

    All in all, a little deflating indeed.

    Garbrandt vs. Mizu is a mismatch, keep it off the main card. Rumble is fighting so I'm happy.

    Magny/Larkin, Randa/Casey, & Garbrandt/Mizugaki are all fights that I'm looking forward to but 2/3 of those should be on the main card.

    I'm still looking forward to it alot. Conor-Nate 2 should be exciting and Rumble and Cowboy are two of my favorite fighters.

    Condit - Maia was an interesting fight to me and made the main card a lot stronger. Who knows what happened to what they had in mind for Vancouver - it is what it is.

    Rumble/Glover is a bit more appealing for me, though Conor/Nate is absolutely a big selling point.
