With the pretty poor premise I really thought the card was good. The British heavyweight fight was IMO the worst fight (didn't watch the first one) and it wasn't even that boring. Some nice finishes, some nice brawls. Thumps up for me.

Seeing Leben get beat up automatically gets the entire card a thumbs up from me.

Looking at it based solely on the actual fights, it was a fun card with some good fights. It was good in the same way I can enjoy a Bellator or MFC card, but I'll stick to my opinion that this was a **** card, as almost every fight/fighter on this card was irrelevant to the UFC rankings.

And just because the fights were good (especially the Barao/Pickett fight) only the main event deserved to be on the main card of a numbered event. UFC undercards can be amazing, but it still doesn't mean they deserve to be on the main card.

People can say all they want about "yeah but it's free", that doesn't mean ****. I love hockey, but that doesn't mean I will be happy with watching any two teams play.

Agree. The card in the sense of which fighters are on it is still pretty poor. But it produced some entertaining fights.

There were a few where I was interested in the result. I was excited to see Terry Etim again, think he's a great fighter. I was also looking forward to seeing Renan Barao fight, and ofc Leben.

Other than Leben getting done its been a good night. Undercard was meh, main card brought the fire, excellent atmosphere.
