Sorry, "the vast majority of people don't care" about anything below WW. Look at the buyrates, they speak for themselves. They only let Aldo/Edgar main event a pay-per-view since the core online audience viewed it as a "dream fight", and they had Rashad and Overeem to try to carry the star power load.

Frankie vs. Bendo did worse than Rampage vs. Hammill for crying out loud. And the UFC would probably never going forward put a BW title fight in a main event slot, or whatever the division Mighty Mouse is in. And Aldo's buyrates generally kind of suck too.

5-round wars can be exciting but they sometimes lack when nobody's in danger of being finished. Hendo vs. Shogun was a perfect 5-round war.
