They clearly didn't learn their lesson from last time. There's enough talent in the UFC to have two really good fights on every card and in case there is an injury in the main event, they can just make the other fight the main event. Might have to give everyone their money back now.
Why would the UFC have to give anyone's money back? When you buy a ticket, it is with the understanding that the card is subject to change. When you purchase a ticket, you take the risk that the fight(s) you are really excited about might not happen.
Let's keep in mind that this is a Fuel card. Fuel only reaches around 25 million homes in the US, compared to bigger cable channels like FX (which reaches 95 million). It wouldn't make sense for the UFC to put numerous headliners on a channel which reaches so few viewers. The Fuel cards pretty much exist to keep the large roster of fighters somewhat active and to give the hardcore fans more fights.
