Mildly Amusing Miscellaneous Musings in the Aftermath of UFC 130
Hey, where did Edgar vs Maynard III go?

Hey, where did Edgar vs Maynard III go?

It was an unenviable task to follow the seminal magnitude of 129. Having been treated to a veritable MMA feast in Toronto, this 130 card probably features at the diametrically opposed end of the entertainment scale, from chicken salad to chicken sh*t might be Brock Lesnar’s assessment based on his TUF13 poultry analogy.

MMA fans are inherently quick to judge a fight card according to the names that prop it up, and at $50 a pop, who can blame them? To the contrary, Dana implores fight fans not to “judge a book by its cover” and at least wait until the fights have transpired before mindlessly writing off a card.

Some cards which appear underwhelming on the surface have been known to deliver an excellent evening’s entertainment, but alas, for Messrs White and Fertitta, 130 would not spare them their blushes. Indeed, seven of the 10 fights went to a decision, of which the co-main and main event were arguably the drabbest affairs, punctuating the overall disappointment of the card.
