Why do we care about the undercard? As far as I am concerned, we don't get to watch it anyway.

Honestly for a PPV it's very weak. Florian vs Stevenson is fun but the co main event? Neither guy is exactly exicting this fight isn't going to be Griffin vs Sherk.

Maia vs Quarry is ok but it's not great.

Gonzaga vs Hendricks is a fight that shouldn't be on the main card IMO it should be a undercard that makes the PPV broadcast if it's quick.

And Mccroy vs Hazlett is pretty interesting but it has no impact on the WW divison at all.

I don't really care what they show on the prelims cause we don't normally see em anyways. As far as the topic goes, I don't think its weak at all. Might not have the big names, but some good matchups. Brown vs Thomas should be a good fight even though I don't really understand all the hype around Brown?? Riley is making a return and he is normally an exciting fighter. Robinson vs Bocek could be fight of the night in my opinion, I predict another ground war out of these two. Anjos vs Stephens isn't a bad fight either. Hazelett vs McCrory was on the undercard and this fight is awesome, if Robinson and Bocek don't take FOTN this one will

I think the under card is pretty weak on this. I was excited to see Amir fight again, but that isn't going to happen any more. I am stoked to see any Ken Flo fight though, but that is about it for me.

I'm a little surprised at how many people are so excited to see Hazzelet. None of his fights have been that exciting to me. Who knows though, maybe he has gotten a lot better. NOthing from his previous fights have been enough to get me amped for him though. We'll see how he does.

You never know though, sometimes the weaker card fights end up being the better ones.

I meant the main card besides the main event.

I think it's pretty weak. The Florian fight is the only one I'm interested in. Don't get me wrong, the other fights should be fun.. but the lack of big names and the fact that hardly any of these fights will change anything in their respected division makes this card pretty weak.

Ehh I think its pretty shitty. Kenflo vs Joe Daddy is a cool fight but that is it. Gonzaga is fighting a tomato can. Why not have him fight someone that can challenge him. Whats wrong with a matchup with Cain?? I just dont see the point in him fighting Hendricks. It just seems the UFC is afraid to put more than 2-3 good fights on one card unless its New Years or the SB. I dont get it. The UFC has so many great fighters. They should be able to stack the main card with juicy fights.

That's true, but I don't think most undercards had as many big names as that one did.

I'm very excited for the Quarry/Maia fight and KenFlo/Stevenson fight. The rest...eh.
