I think it's worth the PPV price, but maybe the UFC can avoid a PPV failure (meaning financially) and give the event to FOX? If that will generate them more revenue?

No. They can't.


I've seen better regional cards than this event...and typically better action if all you care to see is aggressive fighters with no defense scoring finishes...

Thank you for the educated and detailed response.

Still looking forward to this card, it's still on paper a decent card, and we all HAVE seen worse from the UFC.

It's one of the worst for sure. There isn't a single fight of any relevance to any division title, and no particularly compelling matchups either.

I sure won't be paying for this one, I probably won't even bother watching a stream later, I have no interest in it.

Well I could've gone on about why they can't do such things, but I didn't feel like it...if that's not good enough for you, do some research. Problem solved.


Funny thing, going back to my whole regional circuit thing, take Wanderlei, Werdum and Rich off and this card is virtually undistinguable from a high profile Jungle Fight card.

Hell, this card looks like Walid Ismael and Dana White put together a last minute co-promotion....only on PPV of course.

Main card
UFC 24
Jens Pulver vs. David Velasquez
Bob Cook vs. Tiki Ghosn
Dave Menne vs. Fabiano Iha
Lance Gibson vs. Jermaine Andre
Tedd Williams vs. Steve Judson

Even with Randleman in Judson's place it's a horrible card.

Yeah, based on the card I'll not bother buying this PPV. Looking forward to UFC 148 much more at this point.
