The injury woes of several major stars have sidelined many of the companies hopes for stacked "must buy" cards. It even appears that TUF 20, which was hoped to be something of a rejuvenation for the Ultimate Fighter, has largely failed to meet ratings expectations. In general, the UFC just seems to be having trouble getting view read news >>
