UFC President Dana White took to Instagram to tell a UFC fan to stay home if they didn't like the UFC Sacramento main event between Aspen Ladd and Germaine de Randamie. It's an interesting way of dealing with criticism, which is to validate the fans passing on an improper main event.
Ladd-GDR is a great fight. It has divisional stakes and Ladd appears to be destined for greatness. When I say it's not right as a main event, people respond, 'what's wrong with the fight?' Nothing. There's nothing wrong with the fight. But there are lots of good fights with divisional implications that aren't appropriate to anchor a fight card. Ladd has never even fought on a UFC main card before, but now she's being thrust to a main event? This is not how you build stars. This is what happens when a company pumps out more content than they can quality control for and expect fans not to notice.
