    People still watch this garbage? Actually not that surprising considering the amount of rednecks who post here.

    This card is lackluster...as are many of the UFC cards now.

    IMO the way to keep the excitement up would be to stop having a PPV every month and go to a quarterly PPV with at least 2 Championship fights per card. The fight nights on FOX and the free stuff can still provide exciting contender fights, grudge matches etc.

    4 PPV's per year: Each PPV has

    2 Title Fights
    2 "Number one Contender Fights"
    1 "Grudge match" that has an aging star, or a "look the to future" type fight with a high profile prospect.

    A card like that might actually be worth 60 bucks.

    I'm (somewhat) interested...so I plan on trying to watch at least parts of it live.
    If I'm too busy I'll record it and watch it later on.

    It's not the best card(..for a PPV?!?)...but it's hardly the worst.
    There are some intriguing matchups.....so as usual..I hope to see at least a few good fights/surprises in the mix.

    .....and starting off...it looked as if it *could have* been something really good. (...with the 185s and 205s.)

    Who knows...maybe the semi-finals will bring some better fights/action.

    Anyone watching the prelim women fight? Fucking SUCKS.

    Even women at the highest level have technique that looks like the local ammy competitions full of tattooed idiots that cant fight for shit. They duck their heads on every single punch they throw, there is zero fucking technique when they engage only when they do that "shadow boxing" 3 feet from their opponent just for the sake of throwing the combo their corner calls out. They dont know what a whizzer is, they dont rotate their hips on strikes, etc. Its fucking pathetic they put it on tv.

    UFC gradually went to pure shit since Pride went under and they became a true monopoly. Everything is about money since they dont need to even put out a better product than their comp.

    Maybe. I used to really like the show. The fighters had more personality and the in-house shenanigans were entertaining...even the training session were informative. Now, with that smaller house and no yard, there's not much for the fighters to do so the show is just interviews cut in with some training followed by a boring fight.
