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.
I just don't see the point in having these fights in the UFC. This organization is supposed to be for the best of the best and the early prelim fights are usually fights that should be happening on the indy circuit. It's not something that really pisses me off or anything. I just don't get why they're there.

And notice that I did say most for arenas. Obviously there's times when there are actually a lot of people there for the prelims but it seems like at least half the time or more, the arena is empty for the earlier prelims.
