Man, does Dana think we in England are suckers!

Its not the first time that the English cards are looking pretty bad.

Matt only just saved the last one at the 02 but they are really pushing it. i mean there are some interesting fights but cmon, there isnt anything that compels me to pay an arm and a leg to go watch it live.

I'll try and wait for late tickets but i hope something good is added to it!

Wfhat's the card??

Here's the link but ill just list some of the fights underneath.

http://uk.ufc.com/index.cfm?fa=eventDetail.fightCard&eid=1823

Headliner!!!!!

Stevenson v Sanchez

Hardy v Markham

Marquedt v Gouviea

Maia v Sonnen

Koscheck v paulo Thiago

Etim v ????

Taylor V ????


I mean to me so far that is an insult!

I relish watching Kos, and Maia, and even Stevenson, Marquedt and Sanchez perhaps, Etim and Kelly great but i have seen them everytime a UFC is in England.

But whatever way, its such a poor card, good thing they wont be charging you guys but its just sad! But i guess its good, i need to save money so makes it easier to give it a miss!

yeah but the point in having a UFC card in the UK is to showcase the UK talent thats in the UFC, you will see Hardy, Etim and Kelly on them, they are the British standouts, just be thankful that Bisping is not on the card due to TUF otherwise he would be on this card to as UK fighters thats the point.

I understand that but I have been to three in the UK now and i want to see other fighters, perhaps thats selfish on me but i prefer our cards to hold some parity with the American ones.

I mean look at how they have weakened since the first one in London with Hendo v Rampage! You gotta admit the cards are getting weaker.

It may sound bad but if i want to see Uk talent, ill go CageRage but i go UFC because i want to see the bigger and better fighters.

Plus the cost to go to the venue isnt a joke either, if there is not a significantly less price for this, its a bigger kick in the teeth.

This is an entire card of good pre-lim fights.

For me the best fight will be nate marquadt, i was wishing that he would be bispings next opponent before the TUF9 thing was announced, how bisping thinks he's going to beat hendo is beyond me, especially when marquadt would smash bisping silly.

Dude, don't go to the UK show, copy me, fly to vegas and watch matt demolish a new york gnome!!

Must admit i agree this card is awful, I have been to all the UK cards so far but this one is very hard for me to justify. I understand showcasing UK talent but surely a huge main event to help raise the ufc/mma profile in Britain would be a better idea?

Looks that way, suckers! :tongue0011:

England/Ireland always get the weaker cards. It's just how it is.

I think they're sorting out a main event behind the scenes. I think the card looks pretty awesome! Look at the card they sent to NJ. Now that was a shyte card!

thats dumbass though...why market British Fighters to...DUH British Fight-fans...do they think we know as little about our own as the Americans know about us?

Or does it just save them money because they dont need to export the American Fighters that all the Brits really want to see :huh:

I like the card. Stevenson/Sanchez should be a great fight. I like Marquardt, Koscheck, and Maia. Granted, I'd like to see better matchups, but those are some of my favorite fighters.

I'm way more interested in this card than any after the GSP/Penn card.

It's like the Boston Tea Party all over again!

For the record, that NJ card did suck. Glad I didn't buy a ticket.

Guess we are both suckers then! ha ha

It baffles me at times, they are producing better and better cards then
they just deliver a dud every now and then!

You can garunteet they always save the best for Vegas
