UFC 165 Fight Card: Ranking Main Card Fights Based on Potential to Excite
Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

Some UFC pay-per-views don't feature a strong lineup. UFC 165 isn't one of them. 

The five-fight main card includes a heavyweight clash between Brendan Schaub and Matt Mitrione, a lightweight scrap between Khabib Nurmagomedov and Pat Healy and a middleweight bout between Costa Philippou and Francis Carmont. 

The co-main event features a bantamweight title fight between interim champion Renan Barao and Eddie Wineland, while the main event pits Light Heavyweight champion Jon Jones against top contender Alexander Gustafsson. 

Like we said, not a bad lineup. 

Before tuning in tonight, B/R takes a look at how the five fights rank in terms of the potential to excite. Will the lighter fighters shine? Or will Jones and Gustafsson put on the evening's most thrilling contest?
