UFC getting boring? I'm not going to say it was even close to being the best damn show ever but it was good. Also, you said Hughes was a new face. That just doesn't fly by me and I don't see how you could think that, hence me thinking you're a troll.
Many fighters have DOMINATED others who were/are good. It happens. I will agree something looked wrong with Royce, after he lost the fight since he was dominated so badly. It would certainly cause a damper on your day.
