    I'm not a big boxing fan so perhaps those who are could tell me what the procedure is when a headliner gets injured. Is the card canceled? Is it moved to a cable network (Showtime or ESPN)? Also,...

    The whole point in increasing the number of titles was that 'every show would feature a championship fight.' Well, the UFC then tripled the number of shows they run per year, so we're right back to...

    The UFC has contracts with PPV providers, they can't just shift a card to regular TV. Cancel it yes, but not move it to another provider.

    Good matchmaking by the UFC in terms of protecting Conor. Siver is a legit opponent and would be a solid win....yet clearly a rung below any of the real top contenders at 145. Should be another...

    And there's another one-match PPV card that is made totally irrelevant by an injury in the main event. Not going to bother watching this show now.

    He can certainly beat Stephens and I very hesitantly took him over Cub. Still have to favour Edgar, Aldo and Mendes by a clear margin, however....unless McGregor punches them in the back of the head...

    There is a double standard between Barao and if his situation had happened to someone like GSP, since the UFC would just postpone the fight and still give St. Pierre the next title shot. They'd do...

    You'll notice the average age of those four guys when the UFC dropped them, plus their recent records over their last several fights. It's just like in any other sport...when a player gets too old...

    1. No. I really do think GSP is just burned out on fighting and is enjoying retirement.
    2. Yes. He'll get a couple of wins and then be right back in line for another crack at Weidman. It might be...

    Let's break up the juvenile name-calling here and instead point out that Rory just got his most impressive result in a long time. First to ever KO Tarec, and first to stop him in any fashion. It...

    Well, so much for the Nelson hype. Rick Story is a good fighter and a tough out (he's the only guy to beat Hendricks, don't forget) yet any fighter who's really worth his salt at 170 should be able...

    No kidding. 178 was the show with an incredible undercard and a lacking main event, and 180 is your more typical show with an incredible main event and a lacking undercard.

    Cruz/Dillashaw is one of the few bantamweight matchups that can be an actual PPV main event, so it's no surprise that the UFC is going with this fight as quickly as possible. Maybe Barao/Assuncao...

    My only real issue is with flyweight since Johnson is seemingly just way better than everyone else and his last couple of opponents have barely been built up. I will happily for a PPV headlined by...

    Well, now he can face Barao, Dillashaw, McDonald, etc. now that the 135-division has filled out a bit.

    If Jones/Mauler or Jones/Cormier had remained as the main event, this might've been the best overall card in UFC history.

    Geez, could the winner here get the next title shot? (Provided Stipe loses to JDS). Arlovski would be on a roll with a win, and Rosholt would have a four-fight UFC win streak (over nobody...

    Pettis' injury and now the TUF delay has really created a logjam in the 155-pound division. The Cerrone/Alvarez winner will get a title shot, Khabib and TJ Grant were both deserving of shots but are...

    I don't see the logic of putting Junior up against a fresh contender. HW needs all the new contenders it can find for Cain, so why potentially 'waste' one of the top options in Miocic by risking him...

    Bigfoot is going to ruin him. I'm not sure why anyone would think Arlovski has a chance here --- he's been on the fringes of the fight game for years, while Bigfoot is arguably a top five...
