Awesome. I'm glad it's free. I can't be ordering every fight. I ain't made of money. Now, that it's free I doubt the main event will be a superstar matchup.

I was just saying on another board that if it is free we probably have Hendo to thank for it. Had Bisping won it's almost certain the main event would've been Bisping-Silva for the title and then it probably would've been PPV. At this point I'd say we could still see Bisping headlining, maybe even Dan Hardy.
(And probably circle this date for the debuts of TUF 9 winners Ross Pearson & James Wilks)

I guarantee you UFC 105 will have a poor main event, just like all the other recent UK UFC's.

Great, the UFC screws the UK again, and there's no doubt in my mind that the tickets will be just as expensive as they were for events like UFC 100

Not having great fighters is annoying, but when the price for the tickets is just as high as regular UFC event's then it just takes the piss.

Im still optomistic about there being a decent main event for this card. I mean Hendo vs Ramapage was free.

I really hope some quality American based fighters can endure the plane journey over and make this a decent card.

If this event was going to have a good Main Event they would have announced it already, they do this with the majority of UK events, wait for the fans to buy the tickets and then tell them who's fighting

According to Junkie, these fighters are "tentatively slotted" for 105, and they shouldn't be surprises: Bisping, Ross Pearson, James Wilks, Dan Hardy. Opponents TBA.
