OK, I may be alone on this, but I thought that top to bottom, this card was a horrible snoozefest. Browne vs Silva had the makings of a decent fight, but Browne blew his kneee and that was it.

So, how bad do you think it was, publicity-wise (and otherwise)?

I didn't even watch this card. Didn't watch the Struve one live either, d/l'd it like three days later.

I don't know if it's my interest waning or just the fact the cards aren't as interesting as they used to be.

I watched Jones vs Belfort live. But the only card in recent memory that had me going crazy like the old days was the all heavyweight card a while back which I thought was absolutely phenomenal.

Is there a bigger group of whiners than MMA fans?

Pretty bad when an entire card littered with stoppages gets shit on.

Pretty much any sport has a lot of whining.

So when a guy randomly jacks his knee and subsequently gets stopped that's a great fight in your opinion, because there was a stoppage, right?

It was quite a poor card IMO. even with the stoppages, most came in pretty uneventful fights.

The main card was a little short, that's all. Make sure to watch Nunes/Palaszwewski. I don't know who got FOTN but these two definitely deserve a bonus.
