  1. Zack says:

    Main event?

  2. Faaris Sheikh says:

    I live in England and i’m a big UFC fan i was planning to go to this card… But common Miocic and Struve are excellent but no way near Main eventing fights at the moment…

    • Sully says:

      I was planning on going as well… Until I heard this main event. Dana constantly moans how UFC hasn’t matured over here – and then gives us a card with a main event like this. Two guys who are main card material, rather than main event. If you want the UK to ‘know’ about the UFC, give us a damn good card, that people who go will tell their friends ‘check this out, it’s unbelievable’. No-one will be saying that about this main event. You won’t win many more fans over here in September Dana.

  3. Noel says:

    If they continue to pre-sell tickets then announcing ‘headliners’ like this Ebays goin be overloaded! Ad have cried £79 for a cheap seat n then this announced, FU Dana stick your weak ass card on in Vegas n c how popular US fans are with it!
    ESPN deal runs out in August n there’s no way al be paying the equivilant to $55 per ppv for UFC to repay with 1 UK card per year n Struve main eventing!

  4. quit bitching says:

    Wow two big finishers to be the main event and y’all are bitching???? I’d pay for a ppv to watch nam phan vs Leonard Garcia 3 over a Jon Jones vs Rashad Evans main card

  5. Keep Fitch (Forever) says:

    I think if they did struve vs hunt it wouldve been a better match up.

  6. albert says:

    I wouldnt pay,a doller to see this fight

  7. Joey says:

    UFC 146 cheap seats $75 this so far shite card £75 its nearly double n yeh ppl from UK should bitch about this card now we down 2 only 1 per year! Long are the days of 3 cards per year n the likes of Champion vs Champion (Rampage/Hendo), BJ fighting for the belt up in Newcastle n Randy headlining Manchester. Gradually the cards are not only getting worse but way more expensive due to the UFC knowing 1 card a year will sell out no matter who!

  8. Clay says:

    I think this is a great fight (if no one gets injured)

    I predict struve wins via triangle choke late in the 2nd round. Probably right around the time everyone thinks miocic is going to tko him

  9. rob says:

    Tell u what , Dana waits untill they come to the UK ,, to get the best fights on ,, what a load of wank , tht wouldn’t make a fight night card , well I’m not going period

  10. rob says:

    They only come to the UK once a yr ,, now , I’m not nocking the fighters , but the walking skyscraper is no main event lol

  11. Gibby says:

    Id rather see Brad Pickett & yven jabouin in the main to be h0onest, exciting fighters, no where near main event level! UK fans get shit on once more. Dana says we are always complaining, well really what does he expect, our tickets are more exspensive, our cards are weak at best. Europe in general get the same tho! why bother with us when they have the brazillian, canadian and north american markets to rape! put one weak card a year in uk and it will sell out no matter who fight. quick buck for the ufc. i was waiting to the main event was announced to get tickets, been to last 2 events, will not be attending this one! Not because i dont want to go because to be fair im that big a fan i would go no matter who was fighting, but i believe unless we stand up for one good card a year we’ll always get shit on.

  12. Anti-Hater says:

    You want a better card, more fights per year, start producing real fighters.

    Struv is a good fighter. It may be too expensive, I agree, but you have to have home-country pride.

  13. Gibby says:

    we have plenty top level fighters, just no chapion level fighters. pickett and bisping are the only two even near a shot! but i mean look at canada, they get faber v barao, aldo v koch, bones v machida, we get struve v miocic? i will be happy if paul taylor, john hathaway make it onto the card but bottom line is if we UK fans are only getting one event per year we deserve more than a fuel tv event and we deserve better than struve v miocic. we are basically just getting whatever fights they can rustle up.

  14. crash says:

    terrible main event, it’s amazing how only a few years ago the UK was seeing title fights and crowd pleasers. No disrespect meant to any fighters but now we get cards filled with b-class UK fighters signed on 2 or 3 fight contracts and a main event like this? I’m a Struve fan and I think Miocic has showed a lot of promise in his last 2 fights but seriously, if this bout headlined any card in the US no one would show up. No point whining like a bunch of bitches though, I got Struve by TKO rd 1.

    Still, brawl at the hall was better than this shit.

  15. rob says:

    I’m standing up pal ,lol dude the UK as got some grt fighters, give it another 10 yrs and some.major talent will be coming your way
