Weed out these super low level fights. Let them take place on the independent circuit.
The question I have, is why does it bother you? Because when you make your picks on here you don't know who some of the fighters are? It's really a silly complaint IMO. If you don't care about those fights, don't watch them.

As for your comment about the arenas being empty for the first fights, that's only been the case for the fights I've gone to in Vegas. Both Vancouver cards as well as the recent card in Seattle were at least at half capacity, probably more, when the first fighters entered the octagon. And in the case of the Seattle card the first fight won both sub of the night and fight of the night honors.
