Another one bites the dust.
With Antonio ‘Minotauro’ Nogueira out of UFC 149 that marks every main card bout changed. He’s been replaced in his fight with Cheick Kongo by former NFL player Shawn Jordan. Jordan was last seen hammering Oli Thompson via TKO in February’s UFC on FX from Sydney.
Perhaps it’s time to just get rid of the Calgary show instead of having a substandard event.
The Calgary fight card has already borrowed heavily from UFC 148 in Vegas which has angered fans paying nearly double the usual ticket price. The value for money quotient for 149 is dwindling by the week.
For a debut show, the UFC might just kill the town by bringing approximately two stars to the Saddledome.
