UFC 85 Video: Matt Hughes vs. Thiago Alves, Michael Bisping vs. Jason Day Promo

With just two weeks between events, UFC is putting UFC 84 in the rear-view mirror and wasting no time in promoting UFC 85:

They're trying as hard as they can to hype UFC 85 by calling Matt Hughes the greatest welterweight of all time and noting that Thiago Alves is on a five-fight winning streak, but the truth is that this promotional video also serves as a reminder that UFC 85 is one of the weaker pay-per-view cards the organization has offered.

I'm sure it'll be an entertaining slate of fights, but coming just two weeks after a great slate of fights at UFC 84, and after EliteXC and WEC cards on free TV and basic cable, I'm not sure that many MMA fans are all that excited about UFC 85.
