Well what do you know? It turns out UFC 177 might have actually been worth the cost of the pay-per-view. But does that mean every so-called “crappy” card will ultimately deliver on entertainment?
It’s become a common mantra for the UFC when one of their event lineups is heavily criticized. “Those are the cards that always deliver,” the saying goes. And on Saturday night, at least, that claim held true. But can it always? And has it really always been the way in the past?
