Would 255 been a better PPV if Cody was still the main event??

    Back when No Love first got the title shot I remember a lot of Shebros whining about how he didn’t deserve it.... blah, blah, blah.

    After all that the number one contender ends up getting the title shot.

    So I gotta ask? Is this really what you wanted? Wouldn’t it have better for everyone if Cody was still the main event?

    It would have been far more metrosexual, that's for sure.

    Yes. Why? I would have loved to see him get knocked out.

    I am very embarrassed to admit that I don't remember any Alex Perez fight.

    I've watched every card (ironically up until this weekend) for the past I don't know how many years.

    I'm sure I've seen him fight, but I dont think I'd be able to pick him out of a line up

    Cody Garbrandt is a much bigger name with a lot more impressive scalps on his resume. I think a win over Garbrandt would do more to build up Figuereido than a win over the more unknown Perez. Obviously not the purists approach, but I see case for Garbrandt in that spot.

    Win or lose, Cody is always in a fight that delivers violence.

    I don't know what's going on but obviously having someone like Garbrandt in the main event instead of someone whose name I know but no idea who he is makes more sense.

    #1 contender is Brandon Moreno.
    Perez is all the way back at 3rd, only got picked because of DWCS.

    BUT yes Cody was the best opponent available.

    Always funny how people assume Figueiredo would have definitely finished Cody.

    Of course, I can't imagine anyone actually paying for what we got.

    Cody is more popular and his fights always offer insane damage and action and his trash talk is terrible but entertaining. Perez is tough, but there's no comparison which one I was more hyped for.
