    A rare Sun eve UFC

    The superstar in the making Conor McGregor is the main attraction

    [​IMG]

    Main Card (Fox Sports 1)
    Featherweight
    Conor McGregor vs. Dennis Siver
    Lightweight
    Donald Cerrone vs. Benson Henderson
    Middleweight
    Uriah Hall vs. Ron Stallings
    Lightweight
    Norman Parke vs. Gleison Tibau

    Both the top fights are interesting
    Conor should take this easy, but how easy
    Cerrone just fought & Benson is always tough

    Man Cerrone is a gamer. He'd fight every week if Dana would let him.

    totally
    Meltzer said, he is known for spending like crazy though & needs it

    Just goes to show that most fighters could fight 3x a year, IF they cared to

    Cerrone is 10x in 24 months

    Henderson has beaten Cerrone twice already but Cerrone is improving so rapidly that he is like a new fighter at this point. I am VERY impressed with that guy. I am rooting for McGregor and think he will win but he would be foolish to look past Siver.

    If Siver wins, Dana & Fertitta's jump off a cliff
    Aldo is in Boston so they can do the staredown after

    The UFC has 500 fighters on their roster. Way watered down.

    That's too many. How is anyone supposed to make a name. I'm a fringe fan at best but I knew Chuck Lidell/Tito Ortiz/Urijah Faber/Ken Shamrock. Now the only guys I know are pro wrestlers like cm punk/brock lesnar/bobby lashley etc.

    The Pats play in Foxboro which is 22 miles from Boston but for a Pats game it might as well be 220 miles away.
    Going to a Pats game is the worst most non fun thing ever. I wouldnt go if I was given tickets.

    They have 10 weight classes (8m, 2f)
    They could easily just have 300 fighters tops
    But the bottom 270 they give medical insurance to as well as give them an opp on UFC cards
    They usually do 12-13 fights per card & really only need to do 7-8
    The bottom tier pay is 8k to fight & 8k to win
    That is 8-16x more than the indies give
    It pisses me off when I hear people complain about the fighter pay
    UFC is taking care of fighters that they don't need to
