Like I said in another thread: The cards for ufc 126 is so stacked, Cerrone and Kid Yamamoto are fighting in the prelims.

 

And like I said before too- Somewhere along the road, Joe Silva and the ufc screwed up. The ufc 126 cards could have been divided into two events, and both would still be two great cards.

 

Trust me, forum members. Joe Silva and the ufc screwed up bad. You really think they intended to give us an event of this magnitude? Someone screwed up and someone is getting fired.

yeah 126 is alot more stacked but still 127 isnt tooooo bad

Anyone ever see Mark Super Samoan Hunt Vs Wanderlei silva?

**** is crazy, i didnt know Mark was such a Nub in MMA, it was just his 3rd fight ever in mma and Him Vs Wandy was Freaking Epic ^^ (Marks record is only 5-7 LOL, i did not know this)

 

But yeah 2 very big black thumbs up for Ufc 126

1 little white Korean thumb for Ufc 127

Depends whether u r an MMA fan or a main event, PPV UFC fan.

 

Im looking forward to 127, its got some interesting matchups.

It looks better than the UK card imo.

 

126 is an awesome card though.

 

What they are doing is gathering all the released fighters to put them on the next UK PPV card. Hague vs AL Turk main event.

They both look good to me. I can't believe how many people think a card is only good if there are nothing but big names on them. Most of the time the fighters you never heard of tend to put on better fights. Those big name fighters usually just go in to not lose rather than win and their performances suffer for it. The point is, never judge a card before it even starts.

Means nothing.

 

There could be an event with all big names and it could be the worst event of the year and you could have a card without many big names and it could be turn out to be one of the best cards ever

 

PLus its not names that make an event it is there performances so....

 

I know it's the fighters that make the card good or bad not the name of the fighter. However it is the name that adds more excitement and anticipation for the card. 127 could end being better' date=' but you can't honestly tell me that you're going to be anticipating 127 more than 126. 126 is STACKED on paper. 127 isn't. 126 has a title fight and alot of fights relevant to their divisions. 3 Bader/Jones Griffin/Franklin Silva/Belfort are all capable of being a Main event. I'm just saying on paper 127 is no where near as good as 126.

 

Shady are you so blinded by Anderson on a card you forget fights can turn out to be anything? I look forward to fights on both cards but thats because I like to watch fights not wash fighters jocks.

 

You could swap the main events for for 126 and 127 126 would still be a more stacked card. However it would make 127 more acceptable since there would at least be a title fight on the card.

 

If Silva loses are you still gonna post on these forums?

 

Yes. Are you still gonna post on here if he wins?

Typical stacked Silva card. The UFC has been doing this ever since the Leites and Maia incidents.

In that case you do have a point that they could have just swapped some matchups to make it more interesting on paper but i still think 127 is an interesting card but like i said some of the better events sometimes don't look so hot on paper and turn out to be awesome.

 

Also i think because 126 is super stacked that 127 looks alot more lackluster than it otherwise would be. It looks fine to me.

Shady looks at the names of the fighters not the potential of the matches. Its true people like to see their fav's fight but some people also just like to watch fights......

 

No I look at both. If that was the case I wouldn't be watching TFC right now. Big name fighters excite me more.

 

But hey I guess a Preseason football game is just as exciting to football fans as the Superbowl. If not than they're not "Real" football fans right.

To the MMA insiders, the card looks weak, but to the UFC investors, it means expanding the audience and the $$. Has anyone here noticed the proliferation of UFC events compared to the others' and just in general in the last 6 years? UFC is becoming to MMA what General Motors used to be in the auto industry. The new crowd of followers need to find their own UFC hero's and who's to say it's not Jewtuszko or Nick Ring?MMA know-it-alls: get over yourself, it's not about pleasing you cheap bastards.Whaaaa Whaaaa.LOL

Im uber excited for 127. Not really the main event or co-main event but Siver vs G-Sot, Noke vs Cammozi, Pearson vs Fisher. And idk the last time I have been as excited for a fight as I am for Condit vs Lytle. 2 of my favs going to war. The only time ive been more excited was Wanderlei vs Franklin.
