WOW!

Dana really hates the UK nowadays.....

I have a friend who has just paid £250 GBP for two tickets. I feel bad for him now and am glad i didn't get any.

The only thing that is guaranteed in the UFC is that no stars will fight in England.

A close second is GSP defending his belt in Canada.

Card so far:

Stefan Struve Vs Stipe Miocic

Yves Jabouin Vs Brad Pickett

Akira Corassani Vs Andy Ogle

Cyril Diabate Vs Can't remember his name

Dan Hardy will likely co-main this too. Against, i was thinking Mike Pyle maybe ?

I have no idea who to root for. These are 2 of my favourite HWs right now. The event is free so I'm not sure why you are complaining about this main event. Had this been a PPV then by all means, rip on it like this upcoming Brazil card.

Sick fight, I don't even mind this as a main card as long as it has a decent main card to back it up. I think i'll pick Struve in this one.

Good co main but not a main event

One of them will reach contender status

Agreed. I was questioning it at first when I heard the match up as a main event, but just saw here that it is a Fuel card, so I'm not that suprised or upset.

Yeah, what the hell is everyone complaining about? It seems like that's all MMA fans do these days. There's zilch wrong with this main event or this card. The USA has foreign fighters headline fights all the time here in the states and it's about time foreign countries got the same treatment. I realize the UFC isn't there as often, but get the hell over it. The NFL isn't there that often and they send whomever. Some cities/states would kill for any UFC event and people are bitching about getting one because it doesn't feature "their guys."

This is absolute a UFC on FUEL main event. Sanchez vs. Ellenberger, Gustafsson vs. Silva, Zombie vs. Poirer, and Munoz vs. Weidman have all been main events for FUEL cards and Miocic (undefeated HW) vs. Struve (always in or around the top) is hardly a crap main event.

BTW , this rant is aimed at the comments I've seen/heard all day from a variety of different places. It's not MMAPG specific.

I don't give Struve much of a chance, that might just be me. As far as the main event and the card go, I'd be a little upset if I was the guy that shelled out 400 bucks to go see it before this main event was announced (Mecca's friend) but the North American fans don't really have much to complain about. We get it free, the entire card. And honestly, I like the card. Out of the fights announced so far none of them seem like they'll be boring in the slightest.

Keep in mind there are still a lot of match ups to be announced.

like stated before I love this fight and it will show who is an up and coming heavyweight contender. I don't mind that this is the main event at all, as long as it is free I can't complain.

Has Miocic's sub defence been tested enough yet? I think he will outbox anyone not called JDS, but he seems a little light on experience, and Struves subs are tight.

I think this will be a good fight, but definitely not a good main event....

I don't like this match up - mainly because I think Struve can lose. Well, anyone can lose no matter how good he is but Struve REALLY stands a good chance of losing this fight to Stipe Miocic who is possibly a future contender.

Now I realize you never retuirn to a post after you make a comment so you will never read this, and thus never reply, and thus even making this post is futile...but I would love to get your opinion on how everyone else is fudging your avatar...do you even notice?

Yeah, they really hate the U.K. and this crappy main event is Exhibit A.
