You can't have a stacked card every weeks so what the UFC has done is it's put one good fight per card. Last week it was Vitor vs Bisping. Why do you think the Bones card got cancelled last August? The only reason people were going to buy the ppv was cause of that one single fight, the rest of the card sucked. The UFC needs to go back to their previous way of doing things. Get rid of the FX/Fuel cards because they aren't worth it. Keep the FOX/PPV cards and keep that stacked. The addition of 125 lbs weight class also isn't helping anyone (neither is 135 or womens really).

It's obvious what the UFC is trying to do, they want to become like the NFL and become insanely popular but they're doing is becoming like the NBA/NHL, having too many shows.
Are you being serious right now? The addition of the flyweights isn't helping anyone? No offense meant here, but you give off a vibe of a casual fan who watches just for knockouts and barn burners. Now, do I think that the division is as great as it can be at the moment? No. But that's because of some silly decisions by our messiah Mr. White regarding talent in the division, not the presence of the division. I will not get into my feels about the woman's division because we would definitely butt heads over that.

Your comparison of the UFC looking to become the new NFL but instead becoming the NHL or NBA, and that you see that as a bad thing is laughable at best. The NBA is a very popular sport even if they 'over saturate the market.' I for one am glad for all these fights. A lot of the guys fighting on these 'not stacked' cards are underrated and have bills to pay as well. I like that the UFC gives them the opportunity to compete and I enjoy it all. If it's the UFC you have a problem with, fine, there are plenty of other quality MMA organizations out there you should check out.
