Rafael dos Anjos and Vicente Luque are set to be a compelling main event, but the question remains regarding the support from the fights preceding it. UFC Vegas 78 is going to include 12 fighters who have been picked from Dana White’s Contender Series and The Ultimate Fighter, in addition to one fresh recruit from Dana White: Lookin’ for a Fight. This makes Saturday’s event a genuine evaluation of UFC’s talent development structure.
Alexander K. Lee, Jed Meshew, and E. Casey Leydon from MMA Hook provide insight into the main event featuring dos Anjos and Luque, and explore the implications for some of the more established veterans on the card. The team also examines the entire 26-fight card, filled with competitors who are either recovering from recent defeats or have limited professional experience, or in some cases, both. This raises the question: Has UFC arrived at a critical juncture in terms of the quality of its fight cards?
