Can flyweights move the pay-per-view (PPV) needle?
Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) has released its first video preview for UFC 174: "Johnson vs. Bagautinov," which is set to go down inside Rogers Arena in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, on June 14, 2014, featuring the first-ever 125-pound main event.
Demetrious "Mighty Mouse" Johnson vs. Ali "Puncher King" Bagautinov.
In the co-main event, homegrown mixed martial arts (MMA) talent, Rory MacDonald, will look to establish himself as top welterweight contender at the expense of streaking Strikeforce veteran, Tyron Woodley, while Ryan Bader and Rafael Cavalcante do some chin checking in the light heavyweight division.
Fan reaction to this card has been meh-diocre at best, considering the price tag (and congested event schedule). But then again, a lot of folks said that about UFC 173 and we all saw how that turned out.
