With the copious amount of UFC events already this year, there is no doubt that the UFC has not done the greatest job promoting the UFC 170 event. In fact, if Rashad Evans had not been injured and replaced by relatively unknown Patrick Cummins in the co-main event, the event would have had even less coverage than it already has.
With that being said, AT&T U-verse is apparently promoting the wrong UFC 170 fight and main event. Fansided resident GIF master, Zombie Prophet, posted a tweet yesterday referencing a rare UFC 170 ad on television. Someone replied with an ad from AT&T promoting the wrong fight:

Not only does the ad not bring up the main event between Ronda Rousey and Sara McMann, but the ad also features the scratched bout between Daniel Cormier and Rashad Evans. Evans was injured in training, and will be out 6 months following surgery. Replacing Evans is UFC newcomer, Patrick Cummins.
While this is certainly not the biggest issue, it could possibly prevent people from buying the event altogether, or even worse, have someone buy the event thinking they will see Evans vs Cormier when in reality they will not. Let me know in the comments below or on Twitter @SchlinskMMA if your cable company has an incorrect ad for UFC 170.
