Seriously, "booked to fight Khabib" should be a euphemism for retiring.

Has there ever been a main event in the UFC where the favorite comes in and easily smashes rounds 1 and 2, loses a close round 3, loses an even closer round 4 after a shocking scramble at the bell, and then proceeds to win most of round 5 before losing the decision to the underdog in the final minute?

Because hell, I'd watch that fight.

I'll make it even easier: has there ever been a main event/title fight in the UFC where somebody wins rounds 1 and 2 and then loses the next three?

I think I'd be more entertained watching someone get super hyped watching a video game competition.

I feel like if it's standing for any real amount of time, Lee is going to get sparked out. I say that because of this instance where Lee got TKO'd by a guy known for his BJJ prowess in one of his 2 knockout wins over the span of his whole career.

Supposedly, there's a break-even point for the added cost of doing PPV and the provider not giving the UFC much of a cut until a certain number of buys. Small shows are often at or below this amount. Meanwhile, various sports bars are getting rid of PPVs because the small shows are worthless. And to top it off, fewer people watch a small card on PPV than when it's on free TV, so the fighters on the card get less exposure. They clearly don't have 12 PPV-worthy cards per year or even close to that amount. Fewer PPVs would be more special, and they could load the cards up enough that they wouldn't be ruined by a single injury.

I suspect there's a fear that they will look like they're shrinking if they cut back, but to casual fans the small shows might as well not exist, so I really don't see the harm.

Sounds layman plausible.

155 isn't actually that small. Like its walking around at 170ish which is fairly big if you're average height. 125 is a special joke weight class for actual freaks that shouldn't exist . Might as well watch that legless wrestler fight huskies in the 95 lb division. Might as well watch cyborg.

lol ok pal

125 is a garbage division that should be trash canned

Yeah as evidenced by the terrible flyweight fights over the weekend that included a violent first round knockout and the single most insane armbar ever done in the UFC.

Get that trash out of here, am I right?

What if Yves Edwards kicked BJ's brains out before he gained a lot of traction is a fun what if scenario.
