This week’s UFC card is… I guess we’ll just call it a cool down from the promotion loading up last week’s PPV with quality fights. It’s got a great action bout in the main event between Chan Sung Jung and Dan Ige. But, after that, the quality takes a pretty steep drop. There are a few highlights here and there, but mostly it seems like the UFC just has some contract requirements to meet.

For fans who want to dive deeper into the (admittedly very shallow) undercard, check out the Prelims Vivi below.
