    Yep thats where having 50 cards a year hurts you. I feel like the weak card problem has gotten worse than it was before the WEC and strikeforce merger which is absurd considering 4 new weight classes and a whole bunch of elite fighters joined the organization as a result. The UFC made this problem themselves by over booking the amount of events.

    Or Weidman could have just gotten hurt.
    I'm the biggest Weidman mark on here so I'd say he'd never do that but you never know with the shady shit that goes on these days.

    However, if they wanted him on the 4th of July card they would've moved the fight beforehand and probably wouldn't scratch have scratched Vitor because he should be off the juice by then.

    Also, this absolutely destroys the memorial day weekend card which is one of the top 5 biggest cards of the year.
