As an MMA fan, this is a fun card. And it's only been weeks since 151, there's no way they could have jungled cards, re-branded campaigns, etc. enough to add more star power without damaging other commitments. Like it or not, it'll take a while to get depth back into the cards. In the meantime, I'm happy with frequent cards of great fights even if not every card has a ton of stars.
So you really believe that if GSP were to pull out of the fight for some reason, that the UFC could still sell this card with a Kampmann vs Condit as a main event along with the other 4 other fights??? This card would be worse than the free ones they put on TV in my opinion. Sakara vs Cote would probably be the best fight.
