UFC 70: Terrible Commercial Ad

why would you hype bisping vs sinosic? any semi ufc fan would be turned off by that. Andrei Arlovski is on this card and apparently he's a huge crowd favorite. some article said AA got the biggest ovation at ufc 66. whatever that means. and he's fighting someone that is actually good and not 0-34876 in the ufc. i know werdum is winless in the ufc too but he actually has credibility.

Its because hes from England and UFC70 is in England? Its the same reason Huerta vs Garcia were in the secondary fights yesterday(both or one of them is from texas). Its also the same reason Pride kept putting japaneese fighters up against killing machines.

There is always going to be a fight with a guy from the local region, i thought every1 saw this one obvious

Bring back knees strikes on grounded opponents.. Give me good arguments for not having them for crying out loud.

im sure everyone in england has known about bisping fighting at ufc 70 for a while. the other forein folk might take a look at sinosic's record or possibly already know about him and say **** this im saving my money. i guess it doesnt need much hype in america since its free.

I do agree, Sinosic is a guy who just looks like a good fighter and sucks. Plus he has a sweet name. But they gotta plug it cuz it's England, Bis, and first time there.

Arlovski vs Werdum is gonna be a great fight. I had a topic about it, but it disapeared!

Top5 Fav. Fighters
1-Wanderlei Silva
2-Shogun Rua

I agree it is a pretty bad commercial. They should hype it more as a free PPV. Then everyone will tune in to watch it.

Support Mixed Martial Arts, not Ultimate Fighting

Sinosic doesnt suck...
They have to hype the Bisping fight, its the way the media works. Just because you know something is happening, it doesnt mean its gonna sell.
The Arlovski-Werdum fight will not make the English dudes and dudettes wanna watch the UFC event any more they already do.

Sinosic isn't a bad fighter...look at fighters records and look at who they fight then look at Sinosic's...Tito ortiz, Forrest Griffin, Jeremy Horn, Evan Tanner, Renato Sobral and good fighters like them.

Bisping will win in stand up but Sinosic is a BJJ black belt and an expert on the ground and hes the type of guy who can take a beating and if he does take Bisping to the ground he can win.

??? I'm lost, what you mean first time there? Bisping has been there is whole life and has fought in England, and the UFC has been in England before. UFC 38: Brawl at the Hall - 7/13/2002, Royal Albert Hall, London, England. So I'm lost.
