This is honesly gonna be the worst PPV the UFC put on in a long time. The only fights on the main card I want to watch is Figurado vs Perez and Moreno vs Royval, Male Flyweight alway put on great fight  and im their biggest fan, But none of those fight have the big fight fell,but it still hard for me to pay 65 dollars for when the other 3 fight don't tickle my pickle as Jones will say.

 I don't give a **** about Valintina fighting her 3rd most derseving title chalenger who sucks that is just a lamb for the slaughter. I like my fights someone competive, and not horrible mismatchs, just to kept it brief.  And I don't care about watching Lawler and Shogun fight in 2020,Because when fighter are called Legends , They no longer good fighter and people think about their prime when they actully put on great fighter. 

Prelims are actully good fight to be honiest, But the PPV portion of the card is the worst in Years to be honist, When was the last card that suck like this one? 2-3 year ago

The way I look at it man the UFC shot themselves in the foot again, so I say **** em they should own up for their mistakes and eat the losses. They're a multi-billion dollar corporation, apparently, and they have Dana White running **** - from what I'm told he's an amazing promoter. lol


anyways everyone is very well aware of the context surrounding these dates and PPV cards, Poirier, McGregor, Chimaev, Ferguson, Chandler, and the list goes on, have all asked for fights around these dates. We all wanna see these boys fight. The problem? UFC isn't playing ball and paying the fighters when they're at the negotiation table, so things all fall apart due to their greed. We all know the UFC has good profits and the fighters take home like...16%??? They can pay everyone their asking price for the show money AND PPV points, and everyone will be good. But they choose to be greedy and now they can't stack their cards. Like **** they aren't even willing to give them a lifeboat, or even a rubber ducky, while they're on this sinking ship. I feel bad for the fighters, but **** the UFC they know what they did.

Disagree that this is a ****** card. It's low on star power but heavy on quality fight potential. The duck is right in that it's absolutely not worth whatever the price of the PPV is. Probably is the least-justified of all time.

The sad thing is that  UFC don't even need to make good fight anymore because with ESPN deal for the free event, And the UFC revenue  for the lower UFC PPV are about 6 million Dollar because they shills that will buy every event(I'm pretty close to that to be honist). Honistly the PPV could be better with a few adustment because the Prelim are fire,

Nice to see ufc have an exciting new champion in figueiredo yet they still continue to put no effort into the division then blame to fighters for the lack of notice it gets. They can find. Better opponent for him than Perez. Bring horiguchi back

Yo, Mike Perry vs. Tim Means is the rumor for the Lawler replacement. That's a pretty dope fight, and I kind of don't wanna see Lawler get slept. So I'm okay with this.

@Tioken

I dont think Perry would be able to sleep Lawler...he'd just win a decision. Perry hasnt put anyone away in a hot minute....but Tim Means can be put away as much as I like the dirty bird. He was on the card of the first MMA event I ever watched.

Wow this ****  main card just got ****ter, The one fight I want to see Aldo vs Vera is off the card,  im not paying for this terrible card and if anyone buy this u are a shill to the UFC. And slightly ******, This is the Main Card
Figurado vs Perez
Valintina vs Maia
Shogun vs Craig
Moreno vs Rovyal
Chook vs Calvilo 


And the UFC could just no be retared with their match making and slight reordeing to make the main card better. 
Figurado vs Moreno
Valintina vs Calvilo
Perry Vs Means
Buckly vs Wright
Perez vs Rovyal


Tell me that ain't better and you maybe pay to see it at a bar instead of putting your head in the sand. The UFC should pay me to order UFC card,

Moreno vs Royval is the fight im by far most excited for of the non title fights (actually more than shevchenko) and its placement on the main card is downright ********

@Twjake Agree Rovyal vs Moreno is probley the best fight on the card maybe behide the main event of figurado vs Perez. But im suprise anyone actully give 2 **** about Valintina fighting her 5th or 6th  most derseving chalinger imo. It honesly piss me off how they didn't give it to Calvilio who a decent fighter who good enough to beat the bum Jessica Eye and gave it to Maia, Who not that great, She got dominated by Chookagian for **** sakes and I don't give 2 **** about her win of Calderwood, People only care about Calderwood because they horny off her voice, Calderwood ain't great and and she 5-5 in the UFC for a reason. I hate Valintina Shevshinko fight because I hate watching fight where the opponent has no chance in hell because I don't get shock or I think what could happen, I't just no **** that happen you fought a scrub. Val could be blind, dumb and armless and still kick Chook, Eye and Maia ass, And I hate it even more because they finaly have Women who could beat Valintina if Valintina has a off night in Cynthia and Andrade, But they want to give Valintina another ******** win, And in my honiest oppion she ducking Cynthia and Andrade because she scared of them and is ducking them because Valintina know she doesn't do well fighting anyone who passion in life isnt  watching they kids soccar games,
