I think it may likely have something to do with the injuries as well, instead of having to put things together last minute they can simply drop a fight without leaving a hole.

I personally think they should stick with 5 on the main card for the most part. Sometimes 6 can drag out too much, especially when some go to decision.

What's going on with FOX anybody know. I remember the days when I had to wait half a year for a fight and man was it a spectacle. Now I get fairly solid feeder cards before the real main events.

I'm all for this. Toxic brings up a good point about cancellations having less of an impact this way. I do hope though that the expansion of number of fights doesn't just stuff more into the prelims. I'd like the main card to expand too so our PPV $ is better spent. Hopefully a 10% increase in number of fights doesn't translate into a 10% increase to the cost of PPV.

Considering most fights go to the judges, I can't wait to see even more fights now going to the judges. They need to tell their fighters to be more explosive or something because most PPV's are a snoozefest anymore.
