I am tired of the UFC having no big names for the pay-per-views, and we are stuck watching fights that go nowhere with no action! They should put big names in the pay-per-views. That way we get our money's worth. Isn't that why we have fight night, so that we do not have to pay to see the little known fighters fight. big names vs big names

The last few cards and the upcoming ones are all deep. When have you seen a pay per view with 8 big name fights? WIth all the Pride guys coming over theres nothing to complain about.

If you have a problem with the cards the UFC puts out, don't watch. I think for the most part the UFC does a good job of putting on an event. There is the odd fight I don't agree with, but I'm not going to hate on them because they don't do every little thing I want. And if you think the fights are boring then your not a true MMA fan anyway. It pisses me off when the crowd starts booing after a good technical fight. If all you want to see is knock-outs every two seconds, then watch a highlight tape, becuase knock-outs are good because they are spontainious, and take you by suprise. Not all fights are pure excitment, but there is almost always something to apreciate. So like I said if your not happy with the UFC, go watch some vollyball, or whatever your into.

Srry man thought you were trolling, but IMO the Cards are good right now and the biggest names are on them for the most part. And if they put all the biggest names on the same card they couldnt have a payperview every month.

This guy has a great point and you're all laughing at him... You honestly can't see what the UFC is currently doing? Their cards are shit... sure they have big names on them, but they're usually facing nobodies, and only order to further market them to new fans. Don't get me wrong I'll watch every event, but you can't seriously compare any of these recent cards to any one held in the 30, 40, 50 and maybe even 60 series... The UFC used to have fantastic cards, that pitted great fighters against great fighters... but now it's all about getting the names out there, putting them up against relative nobodies as stepping stones and continuously placing unworthy TUF fighters on major cards only for the sake of bringing in new fans.

I disagree completely i feel that the cards coming up some of the best in UFC history, take a look at UFC 74 Couture/ Gonzaga two top fighters against eachother, GSP/ KOS two top WW fighters not fighting for title against each other, Babalu/Heath two evenly matched opponets, Areulio/Guida evenly matched same with Stevenson/ Pelligrino, of cousre th HUerta fight inst because theyre building him up for the mexican audience nut thats it.
