Jeez, can you imagine how low the ratings will be for this?  


They probably should worry about the ticket sales more. I tried to find the gate for Teixeira vs. Bader and couldn't. How many UFC shows in the Zuffa era happened where the gate wasn't given at some point? Maybe the fact it went against a local soccer game probably had something to do with it. I am going to see if I can find it in a Observer or something.

Sort of a weird night.  The main event was about what I expected, but it was still terrible.  Shields striking game has always been weak but it has been exposed even more since coming into the UFC.


Kim/Silva was fun at least and the finish was amazing.  


There is just something not right with Palhares upstairs and we've all known it for a long time.


I think its pretty clear now that a lot of fighters previously got around the steroid issue by cycling off of test.  Case in point, Palhares.
