UFC don't give a fuck anymore... they've built their brand, on ESPN/abc, I'm sure there will be stacked card here and there but will probably see shit like this quite often

The rare 'stacked' cards we get these days have no more thought put into them than the trash we get on the rest of the cards.

If they were actually thinking about these things, they wouldn't have such lopsided differences in the quality of some cards - they would try to balance them better.

It's just that sometimes a bunch of decent fights get thrown together at the same time purely by chance. And then the flipside is that none of these decent fighters are available, so the next card is full of bums.

I wouldn't say bums, but they do tend have have fighters on the lower end of thier pay scale filling out cards.

Look at Nate Vs chimaev card...

'Bum' isn't necessarily an indictment on their skills but rather an accurate description of their socioeconomic status considering what U Fight Cheap pays them.
