    Pretty sure I heard Anik say this when they were talking about this card, during the last card. Can anyone confirm if this is true?

    Do you think with more and more fighters complaining about sitting out to long, this will become the new normal?

    Not a fan of this. Cards should have LESS fights not more.

    I'm sure i don't speak for everyone, but It's hard to stay in front of a TV for close to 4-6 hours.

    If a fight card had 4 prelim fights and 4-5 main card fights I'd actually bother to watch every fight. maybe if they didn't have SO MUCH filler between each fight it'd be alright especially for the fight pass prelim stuff.

    14 fights doesn't really excite me when the card looks like that. That's 6.5 hours of average content. Of course this just happens to be the card I'm attending lol.

    Your point is completely valid but I honestly would stay in front of TV for 10 hours straight to watch UFC fights live

    That being said,UFC doesn't serve to hardcores so you are correct

    The London event was also supposed to have 14 as well, but Manuwa vs. Krylov got cancelled.

    There's just not much implication on the line. If John Lineker wins there's an outside shot you put him in a title eliminator (maybe vs. Almedia?). But other then that I feel like this is a card to help some semi-interesting talent rebound from a loss.

    Love it.

    Don't mind more fights on these cards. I have no problem watching UFC for 6-7 hours straight.

    Ufc getting smarter about tv time. Alot of the time there is a round 1 finish. You have to wait for the next fight for about 20-30 mins. If there is more fights on the card, Instead of waiting after quick-finish, it will be on to the next fight without 20-30 min wait

    That's not true. There's the same amount of televised fights as always, just more on fightpass.

    Garcia/Strickland is a freakin awesome fights as well. Same with the Krause/Campbell fight. No way either of those fights won't deliver in my opinion. The Sarafian/Bamgbose fight should be pretty action packed as well. The Camozzi/Riggs fight could either be a total scrap, or a complete snooze fest. I'll bet this turns out to be an awesome card with a bunch of finishes. Lots of action fights

    Respect to riggs... Dudes old
    school. But I only enjoy a handful
    of his fights. Camozzi doesn't do
    it for me and neither does garcia...
    garcia wrestle fucked swick....
    hopefully Strickland can stop
    the takedown and force his hand.

    Sarafian is entertaining, for sure.
    Just don't know that other dude.

    Should be an above average card.
    Certainly isn't on the
    marquardt/okami
    or te huna/ marquardt level

    Some of those random cards
    produce the best quality fights
    though, for sure. I remember
    some Brazilian card last year,
    I think in goiana was sick.
    tons of subs.

    Same with that random hendo/
    Boetsch card. So I get what
    you're saying. But no real stand
    out finishers imo... more skill
    & scrap than dangerous finishers.
    But no doubt, I'll be watching

    Best 14-fight card ever: BUSHIDO 9 !!!! Maybe one bad fight (Minowa-Baroni 2)


    UFN 82 is nothing special, but it's got fun matchups and literally every fight has my interest on some level.
