Surprised no one has a problem with the thinning of the PPV cards. They are putting on so many, they have to thin out the talent rather thin now a days.
I guess since no one cares about what they get as long as its "UFC" branded, we will only see the cards get worse before they get better since the UFC can get away with whatever they want with their "cult" like fanbase.
I'm a huge fan that hasn't missed more than a handful of cards in the last 4-5 years. But I am not a "cult" fan, who will except anything the UFC tries to do. They have done a great job with the sport, it was gradually improving each year. I think it has topped out as far as what you get as a fan.
Think of it as going to Wal-Mart to buy an apple pie (UFC Now)
Going to a local bakery and buying a fresh made apple pie. (UFC then)
The company had a better product, now it is watered down like shopping at Wal-Mart for certain things. Wal-Mart like the UFC is so big that they can get away with selling less than great products.
