What a shit card. Did they pull everyone off of the streets for a free meal? Who the fuck are these people?
absolute garbage card . i am not even going to waste my time watching this trash. i have literally watched almost everything for the last 20 years but these last few months of lame ass ufc cards have completely lost my interest

Isn't this the type of card that not just justifies, but should have an early start time mandate?

they seriously had better cards when they were stuck on FoxSports2 back in the day . the ufc went mainstream then oversaturated itself so bad there is almost nothing left. it is watered the fuck down and full of no names and nobodies.who is the biggest star right now? who is there that could sell a million ppvs? i doubt they have anybody who could sell 500k ppvs anymore .they have like 40-50 good fighters and 700 cannon fodders. they can put together a decent ppv still but these free cards are beyond underwhelming . the old formula they used forever was a good main and co main followed by 3 up and coming fights that moved guys up the rankings . the prelims always had a solid "main event" and a few good fights with known gatekeepers vs new guys .maybe the curtain jerker and the next fight were no names but that was it . now we have the ghost of rose main eventing with a justin taffa co main followed by the rest of the card where i can recognize 3 names. this is PFL level bad

They are getting paid a flat rate for the job nowadays
So this is what we get

It literally doesn't matter how great the card quality is, they have built in plausible deniability because they have to run out 26 guys almost every week

watered down would be an understatement IMO

I agree, but it's often the weakest cards on paper that have the best fights
