This is only good for the sport, in my opinion.
Agreed and repped.

More fights = more chances for lesser ranked fighters to have a chance. No more than last year as far as PPV totals but more free fights are always good

Heres an idea. Dont watch the ones you consider a bit rubbish. Pretend they didnt even happen. Then it'll be just like old times with less events.
It's not like old times, though. Yes, I could not watch the lesser cards (and I don't usually). But that makes the pay-per-view cards worse. How sad is it that everyone (including me) is creaming themselves that Silva/Weidman and Rhonda/Tate are on the same pay-per-view? A few years ago, you would have things like Silva/Forrest and Penn/Florian on the same card without blinking. Or like Mir/Carwin (big fight then) with GSP/Hardy. So on and so forth.

UFC 111 I remember having a particularly crappier undercard. Carwin/Mir was miles ahead of Cormier/Nelson, not even close. But point being, there were more instances of super stacked cards, whereas now when two big fights are on the same show, it's like a "once a year" type event, when it used to happen a good amount of times during the year.

Yea, this argument usually pops up when people start saying it's too much. But personally, I liked it when I felt like I knew every guy on the roster and who they've fought, where each sat in each division etc. I used to be able to track all the new guys, know who hot prospect new signings were and track their rise. With so many events I do what you're suggesting, but I find it more difficult to follow fighters and really get into it. There's less anticipation and context, and much more just watching fights for the sake of watching fights.

I really do think to some extent, less is more. But less doesn't make more money and doesn't satisfy all the fans crying out for a show in every state, city and country. So I get it, businesses grow as long as the demand is there but with that comes dilution and and less focused, more widespread product.

My 2 pence.

Sometimes you just need to step back and look at it as a whole. Every year, the UFC provides me with at least 10 events that are pretty fecking great. Not only that, but each year, more and more of those events are free. A lot of those free cards have been entertaining to say the least.

Big names is nice and all. But put that to the side. Are you seeing good fights? Because from where im sitting, im seeing some great shit regularly.
