Oh the UFC has jumped the shark! IT'S ALL DOWN HILL FROM HERE! MMA is done the fights suck all the time now it just sucks....it sucks.

Come on man...it's MMA, and as a great man once said "these things happen in MMA." There have been a couple bad cards so what.

Probably this event. I was pretty uninterested in most of it, but part of that has to do with playing a game on the side while watching it, so my opinion = grain of salt.

I actually didnt mind the fights tonight. Carmont vs souza was boring, but thats what happens when an alligator gets your back. It slowly takes the life out of you. I just feel like i was watching a nature video on youtube where u never get to see the animal finish the kill after the initial scramble and you are left in limbo. Machida vs mousasi was very technical. Machida is a damn ninja.


Jose Aldo vs Ricardo Lamas on the other hand was such a let down. So much hype for that fight and it was weak.

Overeem held down an over the hill TRT abuser in Mir and bored the hell out of me.

Faber promised he was going to rise to the occasion this time in a title fight, but he crumpled like a house of cards.

Needless to say Ufc 169 got my vote due to the biggest hype and weakest show.

Wait until next week before you make this poll. 170 could be a serious contender, and it's like 70 bucks.

I think I'm going to do a new one of these after every terrible UFC. I think it would be very interesting to see both which UFC is the worst of the year at the end of the year and how the votes change and evolve over the course of the year.

170 is bound to suck hard and then dana will blame everyone but rousey for dogcrap ppv buys, the worst event by far was 169 but this would be second. At least the signapore can card had some finishes and some good scraps

The original Fight Nights were usually so good and free now we get subpar PPV cards like 170 right after they raise the price.

Back then the UFC didnt hire every padded record or mediocre fighter ever and instead the entertaining ones who stick around for more than a few fights, also there wasnt as many unneeded weight classes like bantamweight and flyweight

I used to buy all the ppvs. Now i rarely get the ppvs unless im doing it with a group. The price of ppvs, frequency of free events, quality of free events and availability of internet streaming have all been influential factors in my boycott of ppvs that cost 60 facking dollars for a card that isn't guaranteed to be entertaining.

Maybe im not a true fan..but i think i'm just being rational.
