The 11-bout lineup is set for this month’s “UFC 172: Jones vs. Teixeira” event, and it includes a late addition to the card.

If Fili-Holloway is good enough to kick off a PPV, it's good enough to cap off the FS1 prelims. No way in FUCK that fight deserves to be on PPV more than Benavidez-Elliot.

Decent card overall. PPV may be worth a buy.... Emphasis on the "may".

Surprised castillo vs brennamen is a fight pass fight
Shocked carmozzi vs craig didn't get added to this
Glad they signed Chris Beal from the tuf

Good to see they signed Beal. He's an exciting guy to watch.

I agree about joey b being on the main card instead, especially since this is filis 2nd ufc fight. That leaves me scratching my head.
I do think it is a rather healthy ppv though, Better than most of the numbered events this year up to 175.

I see most of these fights being pretty entertaining. I wouldn't be surprised to see every fight on the main card finished. Benavidez/Elliot seems like a perfect ppv opener but I guess they feel like it's going to be a fight that'll get people excited about the main card. I also think they're putting stock into Fili after seeing his debut.
