There was something that wasn’t quite right about UFC 191, and it wasn’t that it was a Demetrious Johnson headlined card that was doomed to fail commercially. No, the big thing wrong with UFC 191 was that former flyweight John Lineker and bantamweight slugger Francisco Rivera weren’t on the main card. Instead, TUF winner Corey…

As the third UFC event in a five-day stretch, there weren’t high expectations placed on UFC Fight Night 71. Most fans already got their fix from UFC 189 and the TUF 21 Finale, and to most, this card felt like a bunch of scrap “leftover” fights that didn’t make it to the two Vegas cards….
