The fox card should be littered with previews and hype for the PPV. Stack the PPV and Fox cards and make fans want to watch. overstauration will kill the casual fan. I feel like PPV's arent as big of a deal as they were even 2-3 years ago. We used to have UFC parties all the time but less and less people started showing up. you cant have get togethers every 2nd week.
You and me both know 4 ppvs a year just will never happen.

Why can't you have get togethers every 2nd week?(yes i'm single)

Honestly Dana reminds me of Bettman. He wants Fox to work so badly that he'll do anything to get it to work even if it means hurting the sport as a whole. I also think the Fox cards could get away with headliners that include guys from the Ultimate fighter, because of the connection.

Anyone watch 152? Missed it.

Read some guys on twitter complaining about the lack of people in the sits for the prelims.

Was hoping for a Stann KO too. Now I fear Bisping's name is going to be in mention for a title shot.

Bones Jones and Sonnen will be the next TUF coaches. Will fight in April.

I wonder if Sonnen realizes the beating he's about to subject his body too...

Not saying I'm not going to watch, but the UFC really has lost the excitment level it use to have going into a fight.

155 is about the only one since May of this year that I'm really looking forward to seeing.

First Hendon now Machida coming out and complaining about Sonnen getting a shot at Jones.

Not that I think Sonnen deserves the shot, but who else is there. Plus add that Sonnen has been a company man and this isn't shocking.

dana white said so himself, Hendo and Machida turned down the fight.....what else do you want him to do. I have no interest in it and I feel like hendo still deserves his shot but it is what it is.



On a side note i am going/got tickets already to go to Seattle for the UFC Fox 5 card, should be awesome. should get that bad taste that 149 left in my mouth.

So jones can't fight until April and can't fight Dan Henderson because he's scheduled to fight on feb 2nd? To me that makes no sense. I think it must be to help out the ultimate fighter and they think having Chael and Jones as the coaches will help with its low ratings.

Shogun vs Gus should be for the next title shot and if Chael wants to get in the lhw title picture they should give him Glover

I kinda get a kick out of the titles based around Rousey being the first female UFC fighter. It's as if she is fighting a man.

Is Strikeforce going **** up or what? Really think the UFC already has too many fighters and it would've been nice to run the two as separte companies and have a crossover card once or twice a year.

Also WTF is with TUF finale and a Fox card the same day?

strikeforce will dissolve after the last january show. the only reason Zuffa kept the promotion on life support was because they were contractually obligated with showtime. The deal ends Dec 31st so they are finishing the last event on the contract and that is it.

the idea of having a cross over card is good but the talent pools just arent there to make it work. I would prefer if they had the 125/135/145 weighclasses some where else but thats more my preference.

I think we will see some great girl fights. I cant think of one i have watched that was not entertaining. I prefer it to the 125 males thats for sure.

I think they mailed the TUF in this season. LOL i watch mma religiously and i forgot they were even doing a season right now. the Fox card is boos though, I got my tickets and flights, as long as the weather holds up and no unforseen catatrophies happen it should be awesome.

I quit watching the TUF's after the heavys I believe where Nelson dominated. Actually now that I look I watched part of the one after that with Liddell and Ortiz. LOL I didn't know they are doing two tufs right now.

Although there is 2 TUF's on right now, they actually have 4 planned. They have Brazil, Australia vs UK and the US version...coming soon, TUF:India ... no joke.

Didn't catch the card, but I head Franklin should just retire and go back to teaching.

I'm not sure anyone could tell that by what happened. He got absolutely rocked by a punch Le through from left field. His career is winding down for sure, I'm guessing he'll draw some other "legend" for his finale.

I'm assuming you mean teaching as a coach/trainer and not back in grade school. It is a little disrespectful to think Franklin should retire completely from MMA. He is one of the best and most consistent fighters that sport has ever had. Is he over the hill? Sure, but to say he should go back to teaching in school is going to far. Franklin is a greater martial artist than most people can ever dream to be. He will continue to coach and pass on his knowledge.

franklin got karma'd for what he did to quarry. Franklin was landing shots at will on le and cung was lucky to land the shot as flush as he did. harsh KO though.

I dont mind franklin headlining fights as long as they are free.
