Fight fans have been enjoyed being exhausted by near-weekly UFC fight cards for over a half-decade now, but it’s still tough to get used to. Constant shows don’t allow fans to settle into storylines quite so much it seems, and there’s almost a constant shift in weekly rankings. That’s not all bad, it’s just tough to keep up sometimes, especially in the last five weeks in which we’ve had two spectacular numbered PPVs that have given us multiple new champions and challengers. As we head into 2018 on the back of nearly three months straight of weekly shows, there’s still a lot to look forward to, and tonight showed that these smaller, under-the-radar cards can still be fun even in this era of mass-produced MMA.
