Although the main and co main alone are good enough me to consider buying it. I mean yeah the rest of the card is garbage, but really compared to most of the crap that's been served up as main event this year, at least it's an exciting one. I loves me some gsp and condit is a tough tough dude.
To each their own. I never am thinking this before a GSP fight.

On a side note: it is annoying when people say "what do you want just a bunch of names? Best fights are sometimes the least known fighters!"

Well no kidding. You can't tell how good the fights will be before the card starts. Why get excited about a "stacked" card then because it "could" be a bunch of crappy fights. Name value and relevant fights are all you have to base it on before the event starts. The World Series of Fighting had a few good fights tonight...but that was free. Mark Hominick is irrelevant and should be on a small show...yet he is on the main card of a 60 dollar PPV? Tom Lawler? Nick Ring? Sure they could all be good scraps. But they are irrelevant. I could go down to the local bar at 2AM and watch a decent scrap between drunk idiots...doesn't mean it is PPV worthy.

I realize Carmont is a decent prospect. I really like Costas and am a fan of his. But their opponents are below average UFC fighters. Between Hominick and Garza they are on a 5 fight losing streak...and that makes PPV????

Never understood the people that defend every single card. As if it is not ok to say a card is bad. As if Dana has us brainwashed that well. It is MMA....I will watch. But I won't sit and act like it is a good looking card.

alright then, so why don't you stream that one, this way you won't reward zuffa with your money, stating your disagreement, and you'll still get to watch the fights

weak cards on paper, more often than not, turned out to be great cards afterall

the mid tier guys don't have much chance to fight on PPV main event, so they want to shine, they need it to improve their status and pay, they're hungrier, they want it more than your average main carder.

I for one like those "weak" cards because you go in there with little expectations and usually the card ends up exceeding those little expectations and you end up being happy about the card all together.

The card may appear weak, but any fight has potential to turn out exciting. I'd reserve criticism until the event is over.

Doesnt the UFC learn?

It was only 2 month's ago that the UFC had to scrap a ppv event because a injury ruined the main event and the rest of the card sucked without it. So why only 2 months later have the UFC gone and done it again?.

Dnt get me wrong ime looking forward to seeing Gsp back in action, and seeing the welterweight devision start moving forward again, but what the f*** Dana?. Hendricks-kempman ain't a bad co- event but if something happens or would of happened the card would of stood weak again (maybe scrapped). Why does the UFC do this, will they ever learn.

I'm not sure what you're asking? To not have good main / co-main events? They can't stack every single card with big names at the rate they have shows now a days.

....and it's "would HAVE", "would of" makes no grammatical sense what so ever. Sorry, pet peeve.

Don't really have the time to look into it but i'd assume most of the matches were already signed before the collapse of 151.

How is this any different than that other thread dissing the UFC 154 card?

I call for a merge. No, seriously. Exact same thread. Exact same rant.
