UFC Fox Report Card- ESPN

4. Mistake: not airing Clay Guida versus Ben Henderson.
The decision was set in stone, and there was no way to change that on fight night, but you have to imagine that UFC and Fox executives are bummed that Guida's war with Henderson wasn't available to a nationwide television audience. One astute fan suggested a highlight package of undercard fights should have been included on the broadcast, and I certainly would have preferred that to listening to White lambaste Velasquez for his game plan.



That astute fan? Me on Twitter.

I would have liked to have seen a highlight reel of the undercard fights to fill time. It wouldn't have hurt one bit.

i have to admit that after listening to 30 minutes of build up i turned it over when the fight was over. Dana does alot really well but he doesnt need to be on that fox panel. They can get his take from another location. i watched on facebook and thought it was a good show even though the main event was a little fishy. cain was hit in the ear and went down. He it looked like all other shots were glancing blows that went off his shoulders or missed completely yet he rolled over and gave up. i may be way off but that was my first instinct when i saw the fight and i havnt thought that about any ufc fight since franklin vs shamrock

i think cain was done. however, i am kinda pissed it went the way it did. to much talk not enough fighting. the uneducated fan that knows nothing about the ufc will tune in for the violence not the chit chat, it human nature.
