    Decent enough undercard. The main event alone will sell the show.

    Wouldn't surprise me at all.

    Conor doesn't want anyone earning ppv points off him and if ever there was a fight selling a ppv it's this.

    Just sad to see the ufc continue to go the boxing route of a shite undercard.

    Best fight of the last 5 years, a match up between two top 5 hws and 2 of the Ufc s best prospects in Reyes and Omalley and it's a 6?

    Let me guess every ufc card in their entire history has been trash

    Like any other big boxing fight, rest of the card is average at best, is the main event what counts.

    9/10 at least

    I refuse to give a 10 to main cards with WMMA

    Worth $65... But take off the main event and looks like most this year anyway...

    I wouldn't mind it. Although I'm confident they get Kevin Lee vs. Anthony Pettis done and that gets put right under Lewis/Volkov and bumps Waterson/Herrig down to the prelims.

    I'm not saying it's a mega stacked carded but Khabib vs Conor makes it a 7.5/10 just by itself.

    1 GOAT fight, 4 decent-good fights, 0 bad fights. I don't see the problem.

    It'll be the one big fight, then the rest of it will look like a FN card. So the co-main will be a Fight Night main event (if even that good), and go down from there.

    Pretty sad. They need to cut out 3-4 of these FN events per year and put the good fights from them onto PPV cards.

    simple answer:

    mcgregor and his management doesnt want any other ppv fighters on that card. so they earn more money.

    Main card is pretty good but definitely not stacked like it could be, just my opinion. Some quality fights though, except Waterson vs Herrig... fight should be undercard lol

    If Conor wants no-names, this card should be nothing but up and comers, and prospects.

    Bit of a letdown tbh. I wish they'd put it on a stacked card.

    Does there have to be a chick fight on every PPV now?

    Totally kills the buzz of the night for me.

    That Aldrich vs whatshername fight was so bad...
