    You have two great co-main events, Mardqart/Doerkson looks decent... every other fight is crap. On the off chance there's a fighter I've even heard of, he's fighting a total unknown.

    That would be fine and well for an Ultimate Fight Night, but if I'm going to pay for a UFC, I want more than 3 decent fights, wtf?

    Well, I always torrent events even though I pay for them anyhow. It just seems like weak matchmaking on the ufc's part.

    They forced it too much trying to work the entire USA vs. Canada angle. They're probably banking on the fact that even though many of these Canadian fighters won't be known by the average American viewer, that they'll still tune in simply because of the spectacle of the idea.

    it seems the more popular they get the shittier the cards are going to be.

    they don't have to "hit grandslams" anymore with their pay per views. everyone will pay to see one fight, so why throw more than two great matches together when you can stretch it out.

    I'm paying $350 to see these fights... and I'm pretty pissed about Diego and Florian. I'm still pretty pumped about Penn/GSP and Franklin/Loiseau.

    Hopefully I'll make some money at the poker tables to offset the sting in my ass.

    i thought that it was a great card till ken-flo and sanchez got pulled...

    some people complain about the unknown fighters, but most of those people dont watch anything but ufc

    i htink the card is still very good

    and gsp/penn my vote for fight of the year, unless they pull a coleman/shogun on us
