Far from it. The recent events haven't been filled with big names, but they've still been entertaining. I've really enjoyed quite a few fights. The most notable ones over the past few months would probably be Machida vs Shogun, Swick vs Hardy, Bisping vs Kang, Pearson vs Riley, Franklin vs Belfort and Nogueira vs Couture. All very good fights.

November's highlight was Fedor vs Rogers. It overshadowed 105 and 106. UFC should come back with 107. MMA as whole was great this month. Dream and other MMA promotions have great fights worth watching too.

I'm with you. After the shogun/machida fight, it's put a bad taste in my mouth for the UFC.

WEC and strikeforce have been more on my radar in the past couple of months.

UFC's LW and HW division is pretty bad. TUF 10 is horrible.

I do like how they're letting us view a couple prelim fights.

I'm more in love with the UFC and MMA than I ever have been at the moment. I just want to see fights and this is how many people feel. The UFC could hold out and do 8-10 events a year instead of the 15 they did this year and the cards would be more stacked but I like what they are doing at the moment. I don't care if I'm watching Tito vs. Forrest or GSP vs. Penn, I love watching MMA. Obviously you get more excited for some cards over others but that doesn't mean you can't enjoy every single one.

I'd hate for MMA to go the way of boxing and have two or three good fights a year. I want to see a big show every month, and then the events in the UK and Germany, etc and the Fight Nights dotted around the year.

Favourite Fighters:

Dan Hardy
Paul Daley
Georges St-Pierre
Nick Diaz
Cain Velasquez
Frank Mir
Demian Maia

This is the truth right here. Very stacked and exciting card.

I think it comes down to the main event for a lot of people when deciding to buy/watch a UFC. Vera/Couture and Tito/Forrest plain and simple are NOT main-event worthy fights.

Can't wait for 107, card of the year imo.

I'm always a little disappointed by close decisions, but the bottom line is I love to watch MMA and I don't care if I think the card is great or not.

Also, I loved the Machida vs. Shogun fight. I was on the edge of my seat for the full 25 minutes. Going into that fight I thought Machida was going to KO Shogun in the first few rounds, but as the fight progressed you got the feeling that Shogun was getting closer and closer to the upset. Then the final bell went, Buffer stepped up to announce the winner, and Machida's hand was raised much to the surprise of everyone. The crowd couldn't believe it, Shogun was devestated. Drama at its best. I can't wait for the rematch.

I scored it 3-2 to Shogun but I can see why people would score it for Machida so it wasn't crazy judging, but that's for another topic. I thought it was a great fight.

Wasn't excited about UFC 106....turned out to be one of the best shows of the year.

You don't need big name fights to put on great shows, and UFC 106 is proof of this.

I admit I'm a little harsh on cards that look lackluster, but I don't judge the final product until the show is completed. I mean trust me, I enjoy star studded cards as much as the next guy, but if you didn't like UFC 106 because it didn't have big named guys (barring the main event that is) and no title fight then you're not a MMA fan.

You're just a cook...

Same with UFC 105, which I actually think was a better and more entertaining card than 106. There was 1 slightly dull fight on the whole 105 main card (Couture vs Vera), but even that wasn't unwatchably dull. I still enjoyed the fight. Fights like Pearson-Riley, Wilks-Brown, Bisping-Kang and Hardy-Swick were excellent. The prelim fights that were shown were good as well, especially Andre Winner's KO win. Loved that card after expecting it to suck.

I wouldn't call any of those fights excellent but they weren't boring that's for sure.

There was definitely a couple of excellent fights on 106.
