UFC 149, dreadful on paper, was just as bad in the cage. All but one of the fights on the main card went to a decision, and not of the fast-paced, action-packed variety. UFC President Dana White was typically blunt after the event.
"I'm embarrassed," the sport's premiere promoter said. While the event set box-office records in Calgary, Canada, White wasn't pleased with the show he delivered fans for their hard-earned money.
What made the event stand out is how rare it is for the UFC to fail so epically. The UFC built a billion-dollar empire by delivering great fights almost every time out.
UFC 149 was an aberration. More often than not, fans get their $44.95 worth and then some. You can count the truly bad pay-per-views with 10 fingers.
The truly great ones are even easier to find. There are several standouts every year, but these are the best of the best, the greatest UFC pay-per-views of all time.
