So many awesome fights to choose from.

Cifers vs Agapova and Avila vs Mazany might contend for Fight of the Year.

Good to see Cifers vs Agapova was bumped to the top of the prelims. Deserves a spotlight.

Also pretty pumped for Jordan Espinosa vs Mark De La Rosa. My favorite fights are between two generic Spanish-sounding names that kind of rhyme, which makes me completely unsure if I have actually heard of one, both or neither of the names before, and it means that my brain is tricked into thinking that a random Mexican guy will fight himself. That's how you stack a card.

I think Mark De La Rosa is the guy married to the girl from tuf. They were the first married couple actively competing in the ufc. His name is more recognizable to me than his face.

*edit: anyway you know sometimes these crappy cards on paper end up being the best

Ray Borg is out. Signs point to his child being sick. That's rough considering the issues his son had a while back.

Schaub has a lifetime pass from me for what he did for Borg. I don't give a fuck what he says or does, the fact that he broke down on JRE and paid for Borgs sons medical bills, in my mind will forever erase whatever retarded shit he says.

Brendan is a complete douche but he's a douche with a good heart.

So who else woke up this morning and thought: “Finally! Today’s the day! The wait is over! Eye vs Cavillo! Main event!”

Anyone else?

Can anyone actually think of a worse card in history? I know there have been some shockers, but with that main event and the most high profile male fight being Marvin Vettori vs Karl Roberson, surely this is the worst card ever, right?

Can’t argue with that on paper, but at a time where the UFC is the only promotion providing us with sports, I’m not going to complain. It is a free card and despite lack of name power, there are some good matchups. I’m going glass half full on this one!

It's not just about being a hate-filled piece of shit, although I very much am that, it's about maintaining a historical reference point to judge things against. Fans always talk about the best cards ever, so it's good to keep in mind the absolute worst cards as well. That way anything between them can also be judged accordingly.

Because the next time you see a shit card, you can go 'well, at least it's not Calvillo vs Eye' and you might actually enjoy it more. That's where the glass half full comes in.

You are a visionary. A miserable fuck, but a visionary 🤣

Really strange matchmaking. I thought the Fight Nights were to bring in casual fans. Not only does this card lack any names, it also seems like it’s going to be really decision heavy.
