David Posted April 27 Share Posted April 27 It seems every time a fight card is announced for the Apex it sends people into a right tizzy. I'm not all that sure why, really. Look, the UFC has a huge roster. There has to be somewhere for the up & coming guys, and some of the ageing vets to ply their trade. There's not space on the bigger events for them, so this is as best a next option as they have available. I mean, let's be honest, who in their right mind is buying tickets to see that Song Yadong vs Ricky Simon card? Or the recent Pavlovich vs Blaydes fight card? It costs a decent wedge to stage a fight card with a crowd in attendance, including renting a building, all the ticketing and health and safety etc that comes with that, then the staffing, the concessions and so forth. These Apex cards are, for the most part, a mix of younger names, up & comers, and older vets who aren't at the top of their game, with the odd decent main event chucked in. They're fine for what they are, and the Apex is perfect for these types of line ups. They still get televised and the wider UFC audience can catch a night of fights if they so wish. As (the now) Skinny Uncle D would say, "it is what it is." Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
