This weekend's PPV is not stacked really but Kampmann vs Hendricks will be an epic scrap fight. Plus, I really doubt its a guaranteed title shot for the winner. I dont belive anything Dana says anymore.
As for the new years eve card and the one afterwards, I think there are some excellent fights and I really am looking forward to these fights. Even the next FOX events are stacked. Allow me to show you the list of the upcoming PPV's (155, 156) and the next FOX cards:

You're telling me these are bad cards? Where the last 2 are actually free? Don't get me wrong dude I loved Pride and I am a huge Pride fan. They had the best matchups ever, but to say that these cards I just listed are bad is just pure hate.
Kampmann and Hendricks are ranked #3 and #2 WW, with GSP unranked and Condit #1, so if in terms of ranking, they are considered contenders and whoever wins, if we follow logic, should get a title shot.
UFC 155, other than the title shot, there really isn't a fight that is all that interesting. As I said, one of the worst end of the year UFCs ever imo in terms of card.
UFC 156 is a little more interesting, but those should be the norm, not the diamond in the rough.
The UFCs on Fox or Fx are very uninteresting to me. It's not me hating, I just find the guys to be pretty average. That doesn't mean average fighters can't put on a good fight. But the cards don't lure me in at all.
