After watching 84's fights with such an awesome card and now looking at UFC 85's card I can't help but feel dissapointed.

I think they should start having 1 title fight every event. The Hughes vs Alves fight should not be the main fight.

I know this is far off but I just got done looking it over and felt the need to vent my frustration...

far from a weak card

in comparison to 84, its certainly a weak card

but not every card will be immense in terms of names, its still pretty good

i'm really looking forward to Hughes, Bisping and Werdum's fights.

A weak card ? Definately not

You've got the best WW of all time as headliner, with both fighters being top 10 WWs.

Bisping Vs Day should be a war. Fight of the night potential all over it.

Davis Vs Swick could shape up to be FIGHT OF THE YEAR!!!!!!!!!

Marquadt is a top MW and great to watch.

Kampman/Rivera and Taylor/Liaudin will be anything but boring. Guaranteed!

Plus there's probably gonna be a massive KO in the hardonk fight.

I think it's a great card and can't wait to see it.

i didnt think 81 would be that good it turned out to be damn good, this is the case for this card

Yes some good fights, but what fight would you really say, yeah I'll pay $44.95 for that fight!!!

Because we know that they want to move to the boxing style, one main fight format!!!

I have been saying for a while now that there have been some less interesting cards than others.

But UFC fans, not MMA fans, will always fork out for the UFC card because its a UFC card. Personally I look at the card and decide whether or not I will buy it!!!

Agreed. Might not have big names all around, but I believe that the fights themselves will be solid.
Definately buying this card for sure. Im not only exciting for the main card, but I think the undercard fights will be fantastic as well. I hope we get too see the Paul Taylor or Antonio Hardonk fights.

A lot of the guys on this card are close to title shots. That makes it more interesting for me. The lack of a title fight is a serious turnoff to me as well. I think this will be a dailymotion sorta UFC. The cards without title fights are the only ones I haven't ordered in over 3 years.

Well you can't really blame the UFC for the lack of real main events for this card. They tried with chuck and shogun, then they tried with chuck and rashad, and then rashad and irvin, leben and bisping, and it goes on and on. None of it worked out, so give them a break! Im still very happy with the card even with the injury bug going around.
