The UFC has come under fire in recent months for the lineups put out there on pay-per-view.
Whether it was injuries, trouble making the right matchups or whatever the case, the cards have lacked that certain “it” factor.
However, Saturday is a different situation altogether.
UFC 178 boasts a world title fight, the debut of a Bellator champion, the return of a former titleholder and No. 1 contender, and a much-talked-about prospect looking to work his way into a title match.
All in all, not a bad way to spend your hard earned money or Saturday night.
In the pages that follow are three reasons to tune in and catch UFC 178, which FightLine will have complete coverage of. Missing from the list is the main event – which is still must-see-TV – that features flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson against Chris Cariaso and the likes of Tim Kennedy, former UFC title contender Patrick Cote and Jorge Masvidal in action.
