I have no problem with Austrailia getting the card for free. Its a new market that needs a taste of what the UFC and MMA can offer. I think its a good idea that doesn't put the "on the fence" fans (the potential new fans who aren't sure if MMA is their thing) in a position of shelling out $50USD to watch something they could end up hating. It doesn't force Austraian fans to make a leap of faith with their wallets.
Good move by the UFC
