The question wasn't whether or not it was PPV worthy though, it was is it the worst PPV ever, that's impossible to know considering it hasn't happened yet.

I don't know anything about TUF Brazil but I hear it's had some good fights, Werdum/Russow could be good and if Wand/Ace 2 is anything like the first fight it'll be an amazing fight.

The Dias/Alcantara fight also intrigues me and could be a big deal for the Featherweight division.

With 7-8 spectacular events in a row, why do we always feel it necessary to get on the UFC's nuts when the odd stinker comes along? Putting on as many PPVs and shows as they do, it's bound to happen once in a while. And it seems we're always so damn eager to jump on and rip apart the sport and brand we all claim to love.

If it isn't PPV worthy, then it's simple: don't order it on PPV. Stream it for free. Go and see it in a bar with friends for free. Just please quit with all of the whining. Some of you act as though you're entitled to non-stop names and stacked cards. You act as though the UFC 'owes' you, because you're fans of the sport. What you fail to realize is that the UFC is a business. It makes you an offer by providing you with events and PPVs to purchase. In the end, the choice is yours whether or not you accept that offer and fork over your cash.

If it's not PPV worthy, fine. Don't buy it. No one is putting a gun to your head. There are plenty of past and future shows that will make up for one perceived 'flop'. Short sightedness plagues this generation.

Probably the biggest disgrace I've seen.

Even more shocking considering the UFC is on the decline as far as buys and ratings goes...probably due to aformentioend awful cards like Mir-Cro Cop and this is the type of garbage that will continue the downward spiral at 60 bucks a pop.

2012 has been an awful year for MMA in general, with all the steroids nonsense, lackluster cards, and lack of championship fighters being healthy....it's a down year for sure...probably one of the worst since I started watching MMA.

UFC 146 might be one of the best cards until the winter and even that card wasn't particularly great once Overeem went out and the main event became a predictable bore.

Surely you can only call it the worst PPV ever if the fights suck?!!

People should stop jumping the gun, calm down, and wait for the fights to actually happen!

This card isnt worth PPV price. But I disagree that Werdum isn't relevant. Hes the #3 HW IMO and a Cain/Werdum fight would be incredible.
