Are short main events bad for MMA?

It seems the only people who think UFC 71 was a failure are the sort of mainstream national sports media columnists who never want to take a moment to learn something out of their wheelhouse, and wish mixed martial arts would simply go away.

It is understandable for newer fans to want longer main events since those are the only fighters they know but MMA is too diverse and unpredictable of a combat sport. All that should matter is if you are entertained and though sometimes main events don't even get to the third round, they're entertaining nonetheless.
