UFC 79: NEMESIS (ta daaaaaaaah)

The card has of cource been discussed on several other threads (the only official match for now is Serra vs Hughes) so i shan't be discussing it with you since it's not exactly news. (EDIT: source: http://www.ufc.com/index.cfm?fa=news.detail&gid=8275)

But "Nemesis" what the goddam hell? Just when you thought they had used all possible sub titles to their events they come up with this. I thought even the UFC management wouldn't sink below the "Nemesis" level. Nemesis is so overused it's.... i dunno. But it's overused anyway.

Should we laugh or cry?

I think that with this card, the name is meaningless considering that this event will need no help selling ppv.

Clearly, you should be writing the UFC subtitles.

i dont think its rediculous enough. some of the less popular promos like Ring of Fire or Cage Rage have had pretty rediculous subs. I think the UFC should embrace it and run with it!

consider the following:
UFC 78:
MAN UP

BEAT YO A**

GET S*** ON

GIMME THAT! (title fight events only, haha)

feel free to contribute...
haha.

Who cares about the name guys...they gotta call it something.

Honestly I couldnt even tell you half the names of the events this year, just cuz im not in it for all the marketing, im in it to watch 2 guys step in a cage and test there skills against eachother.
