Who is actually buying 147?

This has to be one of the worst cards from top to bottom, I know that there have been a lot of injuries, but I think this is where the UFC should come in, and see that their product isn't up to their usual standard, and offer something for the fans. This isn't worth what you pay for the PPV.

I know some people may like the Franklin/Wanderlei fight, and I do as well, but this is the type of main event thats on a fight night, not main eventing a PPV. I know that Franklin replaced Belfort, still doesn't make it any easier to actually put up money for this. Which I won't be doing.

I'm interested in the main event and only the main event because is got changed to Franklin. If it had been Vitor I wouldn't even care because the main event would be a thirty second blitzing. So I might watch the main event some time, but I won't be ordering and I won't be watching very intently.

I'm buying it.

TUF Brazil is whatever if the fights are good, great, if they suck, oh well.

Wanderlei/Rich 2 can't possibly be boring.
Russow has needed a step up in competition for sometime now, he's finally getting it and Werdum looked great in his last fight.
And Alcantara/Dias is a very relevant fight at 145 lbs.

That and I'm an actual fan of the sport of MMA, not names.

I'm a fan of MMA, but that doesn't mean I will take a lesser quality product and enjoy it as much. I'm also a hockey fan, does that mean I will go watch peewee hockey just to get my hockey fix in the off-season? no. I enjoy quality fighters, doesn't matter what name they have. I enjoy all types of fighters, and don't complain about Fitch or anyone else, that is a fan of MMA.

I ordered it just now. Those of you bemoaning this card perplex me. A bunch of young, hungry prospects fighting for a spot in the top organization headlined by two future Hall of Fame inductees rematching what was a fight of the night performance doesn't sound that good?

I stream almost every card and am with this one also but that is not because this is a bad card, I am completely with you on not seeing what everyones problem is with it, im more excited to see these fights more so then i ave been in a while, Rich franklin and wandy alone is ppv worthy IMO.

Honestly though I have stopped caring if it is big name fighters or title fighters or contenders, for it seams like allot of te best fights are on prelims ect..

Plus i think the belts are a little of a joke at the moment in most the weight classes but that is just IMO and off topic,

but yeah i love watching guys fight that have something to prove almost more so then those that have already proven themself and or have to much to lose so they play safe ect... In the min event we get the best of both worlds for we have two guys with nothing left to prove to anyone and still they are gunna come out and go 100% until one of their hands our raised, very rare qualities now a days in fighters
