    Opening fight is Gleison Tibau. Boring decision, as expected.

    If any new fans are still somehow sticking around to give this new "UFC sport" a chance, they talk for even more time than fight. Next fight should be ready to go after a long, boring, decision. No tossing it back to the studio for filler-time. Almost a whole hour into the main card, and we've had 1 boring fight, boring talking, & boring commercials.

    I agree.

    Really should have had Larkin/Howard as the opener.

    I was thinking the same thing. That was awful. I know it's part of the game but if nothing happening on fence, separate them and try to get some action going. Terrible fight. Was so happy when it was over.

    Crap Joe Silva is the reason. He is the worst

    Totally agree. Baffling to me. Not like you couldn't have seen a boring fight coming there.

    Tibau was a replacement, Parke/Masvidal was the original fight and it wouldn't have been that bad.

    Really hoping Cerrone Henderson redeems this card. I dont think I've ever been so uninterested watching an mma card. This is insane

    The main card hasn't been off to a very good start, that's for sure.

    Probably get 45 minutes of filler-time talking until the Cowboy fight now.

    howard/larkin was so obvious as an opener. larkin has great tdd + hes a flashy striker.

    McGregor is the star, no one cares about Parke it Tibau anyway.

    Yeah so far the main card has been prey underwhelming. It's okay though, we've got Bendo and Cowboy coming up next. There is literally no way that fight could suck. And then his goatness.

    Tibau & Parke are boring decision fighters.

    Calm down man it's not race it's a fight. I like the guys in the studio for fighter they all sound polished and clean very impressed by Cormier even though though I dogged him all the way up to the showdown he sounded and looked well.

    He still had a choice as to what led the telecast.

    Do you understand the concept of people changing the channel?
