Every patron who purchased a card, all fighters expecting to fight, sponsors, PPV, casino venue, loss of income by UFC, etc...etc. All because of one individual. Please refer back to the articles I posted. Any debates now.
Actually I can debate this. As mentioned on the phone call, in the past the UFC has promoted other fights on the card to main event status, they have literally created a fight where both guys agree to show up in a few days, they have even moved fights up cards to make events happen.

What this really shows is that DW STILL can't learn his lesson and make sure that a card doesn't depend on a single fight. You figure the failures of Elite XC and Affliction would have helped that learning curve out some.
