    Back at UFC 195, the first fight on the main card was Abel Trujilo (low tier fighter) vs a nobody who doesn't even have a wikipedia page.
    As much as I love Brian Ortega, at this point he's more of a undercard fighter, especially since he returned to the undercard after he beat Brandao.

    The same happened at UFC 201, Ryan Benoit is an unranked fighter who was fighting another unranked fighter.
    Why does Robbie Lawler fight cards have WEAK ass main cards? Didn't Dana say that if the main event of a card fell apart then the card would be fine? It doesn't seem to be correct when it comes to Robbie Lawler cards.

    Dana said that a loooong time ago.. I don't think he's made that claim for awhile now in the fox era

    He said that a while back, back when UFC 151 fell apart because of Jon Jones pulling out.

    It's possible they didn't view him as a potential star. Dunno why though, he's looking at consecutive fights of the year. For whatever reason they weren't investing in him. His best bet for a huge payday was probably on the undercard of a fighter they were investing in, like his slot on 189.

    UFC 195 was only great for Robbie vs Condit, but 201 was actually really bad.

    Yeah, that's what I meant, not the headliner.

    Don't worry, they have women filler events. Long ass sessions of patty cake with paid shills parroting how fantastic it is and how fundamentally sound WMMA has become. When it ends 200 air strikes and 15 minutes later, the bloodiest thing on them is their tampons.

    Nope, it just ended in 20 seconds which was the issue.

    201 was worse than watching a fat whale lay on an old man, a white guy who was invented by science and a Brazillian did unlicensed Rhinoplasty on a girl who already had fake tits.

    So guys getting starched is the issue, not the main card itself.

    I think you need to find a new sport.

    The fuck is wrong with you? Every fight on the card (except Brown vs Ellenberger) was total shit and boring. It was up to Robbie to bring it home but then his chin got cracked.
