Based off of the influx of wec guys and the deal with versus were going to begin seeing bigger fight night cards with bigger names, venues, and bonuses.

Yeah the UFC has grown leaps and bounds in the past 7 years. This was the most successful fight night ever and IMO it will only get better for future fight night events. Gone were the days when fight nights only had 2000 attendee's.
