Plus they want to cut costs, this is another way and it's a better way than cutting actual talent.

Like was said, there are tons of empty seats there as well. I don't think most fans want to sit through that long of a card anyway, so saying it's for the fans is a bit much. For the second Vancouver card it was pretty empty for much of the prelims.

Look at the guys fighting in the bottom couple fights on the UFC cards these days. It's not pretty. These guys aren't UFC calibre.
an argument to cut fights is because the announcers have to work longer
