Will UFN events always have lame fights?

seems like all the excess weight fights on the UFN events, some fights are cool but most of them are wack, like who the hell wants to see shonie carter fight? he sucks! lol, kenny florian of the lightweight division (where the losers fight)will be on the main event fight on the next UFN event, thats pretty lame is you ask me...these up and coming fighters are ok, like i dont mind seeing rashad fight, he's a good fighter imo and has potential, so i dont mind seeing him fight even if it does go to a lame decision...

why cant dana put more high profile fights on spike tv? thats all im saying, why not put rampage and cro crops debut fights on spike tv? they did that for silva, i can see cro crops fight making it to PPV but rampage's? isnt eastman the guy who gets KO'd every time he steps in the octagon?...i jus think if the UFC put some more high profile fights on these UFN events, it will make up for their (for the most part) weak tv show (except for the first season and the 3rd) and bring in more fans

and come on now...heath has 11 damn losses, so what he's faced the best, he's lost alot, whats so damn great about him?

AA is the man, and Tim Sylvia is damn good too. Put them against HH's competition and they would probably have racked up 11 losses as well. Get the point?

My Top 5

(0. Fedor)
1. Cro Cop
2. GSP
3. Mauricio RuA
4. Quinton Jackson
5. BJ Penn

Dana might be a snake, but he's not stupid! Dana's going to put the good fights (all if possible) on PPV and make lots of cash. I think UFN's are there to draw a new fan base. People who don't know alot about MMA.

Fav Fighters: Arlovski, Filipovic, Franklin, Hughes, Fedor

Future UFC Heavyweight Championship Bout: Cro Cop vs. Arlovski

Shonie's a perfectly fine gatekeeper.

Did you just say the lightweight fighters are "losers"?

Why doesn't he put more high profile fights on TV? Because he runs a business, and putting all the good fights on free TV is stupid.

Heath Herring is a solid fighter, who only helps the HW division.

the three main fights and the Lister/Marquart fight are pretty damn good fights. none of them would be a main event on any ppv card but any of those four could be on the main card. so idk what your *****ing about man these should be good fights

There has been some pretty good fights on Spike T.V. before. Sure there are alot of boring ones mixed in,but like people say its free.

Also dont forget there going to be doing HBO events this year also(I think this year),so they gotta spread the talent around.

free shows arent that bad....................franklin,tito,sham,anderson ,lister,marquart,leben,swick, sanchez,karo,diaz,riggs weve seen on free shows...ntm bj and pulver fighting on one.why do people complain, its for watching good up and coming contenders, they cant put title fights on for free and there very very best fighters, they do look to make a profit.

its the equivalent at least to a free cage rage or rumble on the rock if not more drawing

Not only is it just not smart businesses wise to put too many of the top guys on free T.V. (hurts PPV sales) but they just don't get the kind of money from the free shows to pay the best guys. Did you see what the guys got last UFN? They don't make much at all, these shows are really just to bring in more fans.

And why do you say losers fight in the lightweight division? The losers don't fight there, the smaller guys fight there; guys like Sugar Ray Leonard fought (I know different sport but still relates) somewhere around 145-150 I believe, but I guess he is just a loser like the rest of them. Hell we should have no weight classes so everyone over under 190 would have to be incredible to hang with the rest of them.
