Default Who said that was a shite card?

Just watched Bryce v Bermudez. Great fight.

Bermudez-Grice: Amazing fight. Maybe fight of the year.
Machida-Hendo: Disappointing but still a fight that needed to be made.
Rousey-Carmouche: Good fight but extremely overhyped. Carano-Cyborg was waaaay bigger.
Johnson-Schaub: Awful. One guy had no TDD and other other wouldn't do anything after scoring TD.
Faber-Menjivar: Good

Overall: B-

I think most people got their panties in a bunch cuz of the main event being two women fighting.

For me it has nothing to do with gender. The issue is putting a below average bout in the main event slot. It was nothing more than a stay-busy fight for a champ. But because it was the first women's bout in the UFC we're supposed to think it's a mega fight which it clearly isn't. Historical, yes. Big fight? No.

What next? Are they gonna have Aldo fight Leonard Garcia in what would be deemed as "mega" and "historical" as it would take place for the first time ever in a ring of fire located in Cambodia?

My issue was that was never going 5 rds and yet Machida Henderson could have.

It wouldn't be very memorable as it would end in less than a minute and afterward I'd be kidnapped and taken to a hotel by Cambodian prostitutes. Let's work on getting Aldo in the octagon with Pettis first. I'd rather see fireworks inside the octagon. Not outside of it.

Now that you mention it, fireworks would be an interesting addition.

Carmouche also lasted longer and performed better than anyone else Rousey has faced. With the exception of Sarah McMann, and maybe Cyborg if she can drop some weight, there's not too many people that are gonna pose a threat to Rousey right now.
