Anybody else rather enjoy the breather between UFC shows this month? Even though I am a UFC fan, the amount of PPVs/TV that the UFC did during the first quarter of the year and the last quarter of 2011 kinda left me burnt out. This next PPV is actually going to feel a little more big to me and I'm anticipating it more. My attitude has changed from; "Oh, ANOTHER UFC show this weekend? " to "Oooh. A UFC show this weekend! ;D "
I agree and combined with the fact it's a big main event I think it will only help interest for the show.
I agree with the OP though. Suspense and a bit of a build up does really help interest in fights. We've been so spoilt recently with all these shows and you kind of take it for granted. This break has got me pretty pumped.

I have kinda been going through withdrawals though. Every season I say I am going to watch TUF, and this time is like any other. I feel like I can't get into the fights in that quiet gym with no commentary. It may seem like a stupid reason, but even at bars when they don't have the sound up, I have a hard time concentrating and getting into the fights.
I don't think its the lack of a quality card. They book these months in advance and could have put one together if they wished. I think it's more to do with TUF being live now and wanting to bed that in properly.
I agree that there probably was too many shows that close together. But to be fair, if they absolutely had to do it that way, has there ever been a better run of shows starting from Shogun/Hendo to Edgar/Henderson?
