    Weak card, boring fights.

    Ofc, nobody can predict the excitement of a fight by looking at the names. But maybe, just maybe, the only two (somewhat) "high" profile fighters also made for the most exciting fight.

    Anyway, I was shocked by how empty that arena looked. They sold what, 7k tickets?? But no surprise, you cannot make a shit card and expect fans to actually travel there and buy tickets. To grow the sport and recruit new fans it might not matter if they have big names. But for the already-fans who watch their events, if you wanna make them come to the event you have to offer a bit more than two borderline top 10 guys as a main event, two guys who would normally just make the main card as a co main and the rest absolute no names (except Barnatt). The idea that the world outside America is so starved for live events that they would travel to any event no matter who is on, has just been proven wrong. Fans who actually follow the UFC won't travel anywhere and then pay for tickets for an event that you would not even watch on TV on a Saturday night.

    Barnatt is not a big name.

    I agree. The way that card was, maybe Bellator will be the better show on the night it versus the UFC

    Huh?

    Not much star power, I agree, but otherwise I thought it was fairly good. Only Strickland-Barnatt was close to boring.

    Agree with Barnett not being a big name, if he wasnt English i doubt i would care who he is.

    Dana used to shit on other orgs for watered down cards, strange how people become the thing they hate.

    Both cards sucked. That was a LOT of mediocre MMA with few exceptions.

    You're supposed to focus more on three letters and not the overpriced tickets, mostly mediocre replaceable fighters & shit pass internet stream you have to pay for.

    Where did this mindset come from that there are only ten good fighters per weight division?

    But a true UFC fan should have found a lot of the fights entertaining. Mousasi munoz fight I thought was the most anticipated. Miocic fight I was kind of shocked by considering Maldanado thought it was gonna be a war.

    yeahyeah, true MMA fans blah... why stating that they didn't sell shit. And I for one am not surprised because even if I was living close I would think twice about going to that event. To make the sport more well known it's ok. But to actually attract fans who care about the UFC/MMA...meh.

    It was okay. The Brasil card was the worst of recent memory.
