Ufc better bring someone big in or I'm flying to vegas for a fox sports card! What's disgrace! Biggest card of the year now one of the worst! I wouldn't even book this as a main event let alone fly to vegas for the weekend! Come on Dana white produce something!

There is no way that the ufc is moving anymore big fights to that card when its only 6 weeks away. The tickets are already sold so the ufc doesn't care about some complaints.

Actually you are able to get refunds on your tickets via your point of sale. The deadline for refunds is August 22. (as stated in the press release) Stay tuned to ufc.com for all updates to the card and other announcements.

They're offering refunds already.


I despise the UFC for spreading the cards so thin and having events so often. THe hype and anticipation for some of these fights could be unbelievable. Instead we have sub par events creeping up on me 6 times a month to the point i don't even know who's fighting when anymore. Instead we have a system where its damn near impossible to create big stars of the sport. They just don't give enough time to stop and get invested in these fighters.

If im watching the NFL i don't want to see CFL level teams along side them. I want the premier of football and i won't get that with the CFL. Yet the UFC has decided to do the equivalent of this.

There's nobody else. Any other PPV headliner (AKA champion) is recovering from injury, except for Dillashaw, who is fighting at the end of this month.

I believe it means where and how you paid for it.

Pure ****! It's typical that this news comes out after tickets go on sale! I'm also travelling from Australia, flights, accommodation and a pretty expensive ticket all payed for. If Gus wants to, he should fight DC at 178 or anything else, not flyweights! Dana pull your finger out!! The fact I'm Irish, I'm still pumped to see notorious put on a show

Of course they are, they do that with basically every main event change. Most will still attend and they will resell most of the tickets that people return. They arent going to rearrange more cards or make someone fight short notice after replacing one title fight with another.

Quite honestly, this is actually one of the best cards of the year. With Jones and Cormier it was definitely over the top.

Gustafsson can't fight on this card. This is the same show he pulled out of due to injury. If he could've fought on this card, we never would've been talking about Jones/Cormier in the first place.

Mighty Mouse is an amazing fighter. Stop complaining and get a refund if you don't like to watch Flyweights (Arguably the best division).

You couldn't pay me 300 bucks to go watch Mighty Mouse.Men fighting at children's weights turns me right off.

I was interested in DC-Jones because i like both fighters,both are smart fighters.However losing that match i have lost interest in the rest of the card.


Gina Miesha Kyra ...yes please.

Because this is important UFC news on a UFC forum.

That is an extremely difficult point to argue against.

 

Interestingly, my cricket thread went down better here than my UFC thread went down on the cricket forum.
