As a whole? I dont think it should be PPV..What are ur thoughts? Its not that it doesnt have star power, which it kind of doesnt, but i dont see many of the match ups as relevant fights towards title contenders, other than Bader/Nog and MAYBE Dunham/Sherk

Im on the other side of the fence.

You got Guillard v. Stephens which has all sorts of exciting there.
Chris Lytle v. Matt Serra - a good rematch that should also be a war.
Cro-cop v. Mir - If mir gets kicked in the head ill **** my pants in excitement.
Mark Hunt! I dont care who he's fighting, i want to watch him fight.
Oh and Lil Nog v. Bader and Dunham v. Sherk

This card has nothing but fights that i do want to watch, many cards with title shots have filler fights that aren't compelling. This card is going to hold my interest with every fight.

I'm with Pookie. Star power and title implications aren't why I watch MMA.

so yall dont mind throwing down $50 for exciting fights? isnt that the same concept as a fight night.. im just saying that i dont think many of the fights are going to be relevant, although they will be exciting and i will still watch them, still cant help but think this should be a free event as opposed to a $50 PPV that would have a top contender match up at least...

That's exactly why I pay $50. Not because Joe Blow From Kokomo *may* get a title shot with a win. I honestly couldn't care less about the title picture.

I had no idea the progress he was making leading up to the fight, but I'm excited after seeing this photo.

Picture

Edit: Forgot to add my two cents about the actual point of the thread.

As posted above by Pookie, the list of exciting fights are exactly what draw me to MMA. I don't care about titles when ordering/watching a card. I just want to see some good competitive, high-level MMA.

And the fact that Mark Hunt is on this card is enough in and of itself to make me watch this.

Then why did you? Start picking fights and getting them right and then you might have something worth gloating about.

Before the event I was excited. In retrospect it ended up being a downer. I really hope they analyze the judging system and make some changes.
