UFC 161: A Casual Fan's Guide to the Event
Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

Believe it or not, there's actually a UFC show this weekend. Not even just a free TV card, but a pay-per-view card! I know it's hard to believe given that only the true keyboard warriors have been getting hyped up for the card, but just Google UFC 161 and you'll see I'm telling the truth.

As with any pay-per-view nowadays, drawing the casual fan continues to be one of the primary objectives for the UFC. The hardcores and guys who've "been fans since UFC 1" will drop a pretty penny to watch some fights regardless.

Unfortunately for the UFC, this card isn't exactly must-see TV for the casual fan. Well, at least when you first look at it. But after breaking it down a bit, fans will see that there's actually plenty to be excited about on Saturday.
