    I don't get it, why would they put together such a bad card when you have Khabib vs Conor as the main event?

    Seriously, I expected them to put together some crazy card leading to the main event but they don't even have a decent co-main. This is disappointing.

    UFC 230 is way more stacked. I mean they have the following on the main card,

    Ronaldo Souza vs. David Branch
    Yoel Romero vs. Paulo Costa
    Dustin Poirier vs. Nate Diaz
    Derek Brunson vs. Israel Adesanya
    Lyman Good vs. Sultan Aliev

    Why didn't they schedule some of those fights on UFC 229 instead? They are just a month apart.

    What do you guys think about the card?

    Conor will probably still sell the card better than 230. He has enough star power on his own.

    They are ruining what is possibly the biggest fight in UFC history with a UFC on Fox caliber card.

    Conor would sell a million with JJ Aldrich as co main, why waste good fights on a Conor card when you can just put them on the next one and stack that one and have 2 good PPV's.

    Didn’t Conor say awhile back that he doesn’t want any other fighter getting ppv points as long as he’s on the card?

    Maybe that’s why they’re putting a card together like this. Nobody else on it, so far, can claim any rights to ppv points.

    Wow he is right according to the UFC.com. That is an extremely underwhelming card so far.

    I wouldn't even care if that was the main card or not. I just want Khabib vs Conor to happen..

    Didn't Conor specifically negotiate that he doesn't want to share ppv points with other fighters? Thus we won't ever get another blockbuster card with him on it ever again.

    Volkov vs Lewis has been added, probably at least one more big fight will materialize. It would be a serious missed opportunity to not use a card with a guaranteed million+ buys to try to promote some talent.

    The only fight that matters is mac kabob. The rest is just window dressing.

    It doesn't matter who else is on the card anymore when Conor is headlining.

    Because Conor Khabib will sell the card on their own, they don't want to give anyone else ppv points, the other reason is its at MSG, thats why its so stacked.

    They’re going to keep 229 pretty light. UFC knows that Conor can sell it himself and doesn’t require a stacked card to sell.

    However, I do expect a couple decent match ups to be announced shortly
