We're not judging cards on their entertainment value, but on their appeal for making picks. The Affliction card should be amazing to watch, but if you look at the picks, its not that intriguing because of all the underdogs. The IFL card might have been entertaining, but the match-ups were relative unknowns vs. relative unknowns, so making picks is guesswork at best.
CR has well-balanced fights that are up early enough where you can research the fighters and make educated picks.
I don't understand why you bring up affliction as it is in the secondary league.
the ifl may have had some "unknown v unknown" fights, but cage rage is almost all unknown v unknown so the logic doesnt follow, and even if cr has their card posted early i bet the majority of people dont do research on these unknown fighters, they look at the record and take a guess, just like they would have done with the unknown ifl fighters. but the ifl card had more known fighters than cr. i would have to say that big country, brad imes, horowich etc are more well known than buzz berry and ian freeman
