Dana White: If you don't like the UFC 108 fight card, don't buy it

Quoteworthy:

"You get 10 (expletive) hardcores on the Internet going, 'Oh, this card (stinks), there’s no this, there’s no that.' Then guess what: Don’t (expletive) buy the card! It’s usually the ones that they’re bitching about that end up being some of the best. What happened with the last card is people were (complaining) because the Rashad Evans-Rampage fight wasn’t happening. Look at what happened. This is my philosophy on this, if you’re a (expletive) fight fan, we’re going to put on good fights for you."

UFC President Dana White rails the "hardcore" fans who continue to slam the lack of star power in the traditional year-end pay-per-view (PPV) event for the promotion despite the ridiculous amount of injuries and changes that have plagued the fight card since its inception. Champions Brock Lesnar and Anderson Silva, as well as heavyweight contenders Shane Carwin and Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, have all been rumored to compete (and then ultimately scratched) from the event. Other notables such as Gabriel Gonzaga, Carlos Condit and Tyson Griffin have also been forced out of competition. UFC 108: "Evans vs. Silva," which will take place this Saturday (Jan. 2) at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, now features a main event between light heavyweights Rashad Evans and Thiago Silva -- who may or may not be big enough draws to carry an event alone. Is the supporting main card cast good enough to ensure that UFC 108 delivers? More specifically, do you intend to shell out the money to watch it? Keep in mind that events like this are sometimes action-packed "sleepers." Let's hear it, Maniacs.
