This was a very weak event. OTOH, I feel really comfortable missing future events and just going out and having fun.
The UFC, post-merger is looking pretty dull. Same thing happened to WWE after they absorbed WCW and ECW.
What did the merger have to do with the PPV event?
of course its easy to say it should b free in hindsight (now that u found it lackluster) but some of the best PPVs have come from cards with little star power like tonights Never really understood how ppl could come to the conclusion the fans would benefit from it when most of the fighters outside of the HWs would just be journeymen in the ufc..Lookin at everyones favourite stud that hadnt lost since heavens knows when.Comes to ufc and practically loses to kampman then gets beat by a one eyed greaser..
Strikeforce and the UFC haven't merged, and Jake Shields was in the UFC months before Strikeforce was purchased. Also, not a single Strikeforce fighter has fought in the UFC since the buyout.
And the bolded statement doesn't any sense.
