    The main event was confirmed to be Holm/Germ,are there any additions that can make this a decent card? I don't see it happening.Frankie will probably fight to a decision if he's added to the card and idk who's available that will make it a good fight.
    The only names on this card are coming off loses.Holm lost her last 2.
    Browne and his coach just got their asses kicked. Glovers tooth still hadn't landed.Poirier got ko'd in the first rd....
    This is amongst the worst numbered events ever, after the long wait NY had to hold mma events they should of made a solid card. Charging a minimum of $800 for 205 tix wasn't nice either.

    But seriously the cards don't matter to me anymore as I don't pay anything for MMA

    The card is currently dog-shit, and would do the worst PPV numbers for the UFC in the past few years likely. Freaking Derrick Lewis vs Travis Browne is set up to be the current co-main event. They could not even add an Edgar vs Lamas match, SMH.

    Exactly. For a Fox card it would be great, but few individuals are shelling out $60 for this card, when nearly all casual MMA fans have zero clue as to whom GDR is and is main-eventing a show.

    They need to add at least one of these fights to help save the show.

    Love Black Beast, but he has no place co-main eventing a PPV. He certainly deserves a spot on the main card though.

    That card is bad and UFC should feel bad. It's like they forgot they moved from Anaheim to New York and just kept the local Cali fighters on the card.

    They could have just kept 208 in January and let 209 stay in Brooklyn. Bet the card would be better. 2017 is looking like a bag of trash for the UFC.

    It could have done really well if it had a main card.It's in a prime spot for advertising being a week after the superbowl.we know they're not showing the Ronda highlight.
