Yeah the main card would have suffered for sure. The UFC did a very poor job of picking which fights should be on the main card. So yeah it would have hurt the PPV portion of the card way more then it should have. This card is full of WW. Hell even moving up the very exciting youngster Mein would have been just fine with me. I think he would be game vs Ellengerger.
