    1 MAYBE two fights I want to see on this card….Bendo vs Pettis for sure and Koch vs Poirier. The only other interesting fight headlines Fox Sports 1. Mir vs Barnet would have been cool 6-8-10 years ago but i will be damned if I pay to see these past their prime roid freaks give each other some man love in the cage.

      I don’t know how you could say that unless you aren’t really a fight fan. There are plenty of exciting fights on this card. If you are going to post something like this how can you neglect even mentioning Mendes vs Guida. Vera vs Rothwell should also be a really fun fight even though they are both kind of at low points in their career. Varner vs Tibau are both two tough guys that should put on a good fight as well. I guess some people are fight fans and others are just fighter fans.

        I know you are trying really hard to sound like you’re totally a hardcore fan as many here do and all, but you neglect to think that most of the PPV card are guys I have been watching for years when they were in their prime. I am not going pay to watch a card full of washed up guys in the twilights of their careers.

        I didn’t mention Varner vs Tiebau because it is on free TV. Vera vs Rothwell does NOTHING for me as these guys are just not that good to watch anymore and is nothing more than a filler fight likely to satisfy their contracts so they can be released….they are too old and battle worn…nor does Guida vs Mendes because Guida hasn’t fought like Guida used to before Greg Jackson. Mendes is awesome to watch but I am not going to pay to watch Guida dance around 110 mph to earn another Jackson MMA decision win. He’s gotten boring to watch as have most Jackson MMA guys. I am a “fight” fan, not “sports” fan and have been watching since the first UFC.

          Seems like you’re focusing more on the cost aspect now as opposed to your previous post where you only pointed out that you would not pay to see the 2 roid freaks. You opened with your statement of there only being one or two fights that you want to see, not that you would pay to see. I don’t like paying for PPV either as I imagine most don’t unless they are having people over and making a night out of it. Go to a sports bar and watch for free if you’re worried about spending money though. Nobody likes greg jackson except team greg jackson but that fight should still be a good fight. I guess we’ll see.

          • Gary Fredericks

            AH! I see where I messed up and made my comments misleading in my original post. My bad. I meant to say I am not willing to pay for a UFC PPV with only one, maybe two fights that I want to see. I didn’t mean to say SOLELY because of the Mir-Barnet fight, instead meaning specifically the PPV portion entirely. Varner is on free TV so that’s why I excluded it. I am sure it could be a good card, as many seemingly bad cards often do.

            Thanks for keeping us informed that you won’t be buying this PPV. Glad you shared that

          • Gary Fredericks

            I’m so glad you liked it.

        • wow

          totally agree about Guida…before Jackson took over his brain he put on some of the best fights I’ve seen: vs Tyson Griffin,vs Diego Sanchez, and vs Roger Huerta..and now I think he’s one of the most boring fighters, he no longer looks to hurt people, he just runs from them like he did against Gray, or lay on top of them while delivering no punishment, like he did against Pettis and Hioki. unfortunately judges give fights to people who are on top, regardless if they’re just avoiding submissions and doing zero damage. Guida is no longer a fighter, he’s a points athlete.

        I completely agree, I think this PPV is a good one, not great, but far from one of the worst. It’s worth the $60, bc like you said I’m a fight fan, not a fighter fan. Who cares is Mir and Barnett aren’t fighting in their prime. The joke is that they’re probably better fighters now than they were 6 years ago, bc of the evolvement of MMA and MMA fighters. Fighters today are 10X better than fighters were 6 yrs ago. Is GSP better now than he was when he first entered?! Hell YES, it’s not even close. Sure GSP finished more opponents back then, but compare who he fought, 3 rounds and didnt have millions to lose. Same with Jones, Silva and Cain etc.
