I reckon most of these fights will be very explosive.
Its no better than most Fight NIght cards, in fact I think some FN cards are better

Next verses card

Nate Marquardt vs Anthony Johnson
Cheick Kongo vs Pat Barry
Martin Kampmann vs John Howard
Matt Mitrione vs Christian Morecraft
Tyson Griffin vs Manvel Gamburyan

UFC 130

Quinton Jackson vs. Matt Hamill
Frank Mir vs Roy Nelson
Thiago Alves vs Rick Story
Stefan Struve vs Travis Browne
Brian Stann vs Jorge Santiago

Main event wise, am not really looking forward to ether main event, I think they both suck.
UFC130 vs Versus Card = Draw

2x HW battles on each card, of the 4 fights my fav is Kongo vs Barry which is on the free card, and I think Mitrione vs Morecraft is on the same level as Struve vs Browne if not just a little bit more edge to it, but quality of fights wise its very close.
UFC130 vs Versus Card = Draw

Alves on one, Kampmann on the other, ok I like the Alves fight more but again very similar quality in terms of relevance and entertainment.
UFC130 vs Versus Card = UFC130 + 1 out of 5

Safe to say the Stann fight is of more relevance than the Griffin fight, but again both have potential to be good fight, does give UFC 130 the edge I guess but does it give it enough edge to dish out and pay to watch it, not for me it wouldn't, and besides the fact I like the HW battles more on the Versus event makes these 2 cards a very close match.
UFC130 vs Versus Card = UFC130 + 2 out of 5

From the potential of a card winning by 25 points (the 2 HW battles are rated together worth 10 points), UFC 130 wins buy +3, I would expect +10 to be giving up cash to watch this over a free card.

A lot of the time the cards that don't look that good on paper end up with a bunch of amazing fights. I'm not going to buy it but it's worth a couple drinks at the local bar.

Hell, we get to see Miguel Torres in the UFC, who doesnt want to see that!

I preferred it when we saw Miguel Torres was on free WEC events personally, hell him been on a UFC card does not make the fight any better to watch. since the merge the only difference is you now get the privilege of paying to watch Miguel Torres an all the the Bantamweight and Featherweight fights instead of more fights from the upper divisions, I hope you enjoy the upgrade

On a side Note, I thought the WEC/UFC merge was a bad thing from the moment I heard the new, and I will say right now since the merge no good has come from it what so ever, this has caused nothing at all but negative effect on the promotion as the quality is dropping.

Depth in all other divisions has fallen except for the LW division, the large majority of fighters in the UFC are seeing less action, the UFC is not hosting more shows to support the extra divisions so we have lost out on events from not having the events the WEC was hosting. This Merge is the worse thing the UFC has ever done, and as the depth continues to fall I think its only getting worse, cards like show that the UFC is a becoming more a second rate promotion.

Stefan Struve vs. Travis Browne
Brian Stann vs. Jorge Santiago

Miguel Torres vs. Demetrious Johnson
Kendall Grove vs. Tim Boetsch

The main event may not be the greatest but to me this looks like a solid card with the potential for a lot of good fights. Some of the best cards I've seen in recent memory did not have a lot of "star billing".

yeah i mean i cant believe that these FWs and BWs are now going to get paid well and have enough money for great training camps so they can fight at their potential

this sucks, they dont deserve more recognition or money

you call urself a fan and yet cant support these FWs and BWs that you love? you can always just download the ppv, hell you can download it in HD for free

Idk I may end up buying, or going to a bar to watch at the very least. What the card lacks in big names and title fights it makes up for with potential wars. All the PPV fights are evenly matched fights that should be fast paced, with the possible exception of Rampage v Hammill.

Another factor is that we haven't been able watch any Zuffa fights in a month. Thank God for Bellator.

Well that has not been the case has it, tell that to Mark Hominick $5000 for his title fight with Aldo, the WEC had a fan base, TV contract and income, it sold tickets, it was specialized in supporting the lower weights, the fighters had sponsorships, so what you are saying is complete BullSh1t, they are all payed by the same pot anyway, the fact Zuffa choice to screw them like they screw most UFC fighters anyway is sad but they are no better off now than before.

In fact most of them will be worse off because they will get dropped all together, because without there own specialist promotion they wont get as mush air time to suport as big divisions, or relevant spaces on UFC cards which wont help there sponsorships.

What may help one or two big stars like Aldo, Cruz, Fabar will hurt the masses, and besides Zuffa could of chose to keep the WEC and just treat its stars better money wise anyway without the need to merge to the UFC, so what you are saying just does not support the facts of what is actually happening.

As for calling myself a fan and not supporting these divisions, I believe these divisions where getting far better support as the WEC been a specialist promotion dedicated to supporting them, than they will ever get in the UFC.

A for or final comment about downloading I subscribe to ESPN which is the only way to get UFC where I live.

Oh and I missed your point about the camps, and you claiming they will get better camps, they all where out of the same camps anyway, the UFC and WEC fighters where training out of the same camps long before the merge as do SF and even Bellator fighters, in fact I bet these camps have lots of other guys doing regional shows, so it will have fcuk all effect on where they train or how much.

Nah, I won't be buying it but that's not a huge surprise. I wasn't super stoked in the first place (despite there being some decent fights) and then the main event dropping off really killed it for me. I might swing by a bar and watch it 'cause I hate missing events entirely but it's up in the air.
