The main event salvaged what was essentially a fairly terrible waste of money for a pay-per-view. After all, the best parts of the UFC 192 card were aired free on Fox Sports 1.
There were some spectacular finishes on the “prelims” portion of UFC 192, at one point stringing together four stoppages in the very first round forcing Fox Sports to fill out the time slot with idle chatter and commercials.
