Is it me or am I the only one pissed off that GONO/HARDY will not be show on the main card?
Yeah I know, we may get lucky and see it, but why is this not a main card fight and instead its on the prelims?
iNSTEAD We get to watch Chris Lytle vs. Paul Taylor
Shane Carwin vs. Neil Wain
my question is HOW in the world are these two fights ahead of HARDY/ GONO.

This isnt the first time that this has happened, every card there is a fight on it, that should be shown and it never happens.

Maybe this is just UFC's way of trying to get ppl to spend MORE money on buying it on their website! Which I have tried before, and had to wait 24 hrs before i could view it!

well the carwin fight makes sense IMO in that the HW division is pretty weak and carwin is one of the guys to look out for. They give him someone they expect him to beat in impressive fashion and put him on the main billing of a free event to get him some exposure and start building his name. It's like an investment, they're hoping that it will result in some highly marketable fights at HW down the road.

Also, Gono is a good fighter no doubt but the guy isn't necessarily the most exciting fighter for an audience made up mostly of casual viewers. It's especially true for a free TV card. These are the ones the average joe who doesn't pay for PPVs are most likely to watch, they don't want to risk decisions when they can have a guy like shane carwin who's going to give them an almost guaranteed first round stoppage. These free cards are designed to attract people who aren't already fans and guys like Carwin are the types of fighters who bring in new fans that aren't as knowledgeable and want to see quick finishes.

It's a smart move on their part.

Carwin fight makes since b/c it'll be over in 30 secs. Highlight reel w/ time for an extra fight.

aether was dead on, also i want to add that taylor and lytle will more than likely be a stand up war and thats good for drawing in the casual fan.

the gono fight was originaly on the main card ufc decided to take it off
i wanted to see the fight if it ends quick the ufc will show the fight
3hr 6 fights no title = probably watch 7 or 8 fights watch

carwin fight won't last a couple minutes will be first fight shown
but i wanted to see gono fight as well

me too...after all of that hype i was hoping to see it. hopefully if they show Hardy vs Gono due to it being FOTN i would appreciate it if the UFC played his entrance.

well I think because Carwin vs Neil could be a KO of the night.

And Lytle always puts on a good fight and paul taylor put's up one hell of a fight.

So I can see why.

I am going to check out sopcast to see if they play a fight we did not get a chance to see on spike/sportsnet . So if any of you are curious, im guess anywhere from midnight to 3 am, SOPCAST will play the event. So who knows, maybe get a fight, that we didnt get a chance to see.
