As a business proposition, I don't feel great about UFC 150. Frankie Edgar has never connected with UFC fans, at least not the kind of connection that inspires fans to buy pay-per-views.
Worse still, at least for the UFC's bank balance, Strikeforce star Ronda Rousey stole some of the spotlight from Edgar and opponent Benson Henderson, sneaking in like a particularly beautiful thief in the night.
We'll let the accountants sort out the actual bottom line. Our bottom line involves the fights. And they were amazing. Starting with Nik Lentz and ending with the showdown for the lightweight title, it was another special night for the UFC.
As always the real winners and losers aren't obvious by a cursory look at the results. The real winners and losers follow—and they may not be exactly who you think they are.
