MMA  > General MMA  > Was UFC149 the worst main card of the year thus far?
July 28, 2012, 12:51 PM
Joao:Let???s go with a ???yes??? here. First of all, this was probably the numbered event I was anticipating the less, from those that have already played out in 2012. And when the fights happened, the entertainment value just wasn???t there, when compared to other events. Stalling and decisions, the prelims outclassed the main card, the crowd was obviously restless and Lombard???s debut was terrible.

Each year an event (again, only looking at numbered ones) has to fill the shoes of being the worst one. This is it. At least so far.

Jim: Absolutely, and its not even close. The Riddle versus Clements fight was a good fight to start things off but man did it go down hill. What was Ebersole doing in his fight versus Head? Kongo and Jordan decided to hang out against the cage for 15 minutes. Lombard and Boetsch was a snoozfest. The Faber versus Baroa fight was decent but I expected more and by then the crowd was so angry it didn???t matter. When the president of the UFC says he was embarrassed you know the card was awful.

Collin: Yes, the main card was boring. Ebersole looked tiny at welterweight for the first time, and his shooting over and over again without success was as frustrating to most fans as it was to him. Jordan looked horrible against Kongo. If there was one thing you expected a former LSU linebacker who used to bench 610 and run a 4.6 40 to do to a gatekeeper opponent whom he outweighed by some 35 pounds to do was muscle him against the fence, and he failed miserably.

David: Did everyone forget UFC Brazil? Oh yeah, this one was worse. Normally I look online for the highlights to see what I missed? But I dont even care that much, even though this show wiped out my gambling roll.
