I highly doubt the main event will even come close to being a worthy main event. Hope I'm wrong.
I don't think you're wrong about the main event not being main event worthy but I really don't think Hendo can last the full five rounds. He was dead after the third round in the Shogun fight. He was only able to go five rounds because Shogun was also gassed and both guys were barely moving at the end. Hendo has also been off for a while and his knee still might not be a 100%.
