I liked the card because Diaz got his ass kicked, and Rory won. Not that I was expecting anything different though.
The main card had some big name fighters, but none of the fights were even close. I don't know what everyone's criteria is for "card of the year", but close to the top of my list is having a few very close, back-and-forth match ups.
You never see fight of the year go to a purely 1 sided beat down... I don't see why having a card chalk full of 1 sided decisions should qualify for card of the year.
