Yeah. A second-rate cable station airing re-runs vs. a mainstream TV broadcaster airing a highly anticipated fight that everyone in the MMA community knows about.



Golly gee. I'm sure that will do splendidly.

Every time the UFC announces that they are counter-programming something, someone starts a thread which is gets filled up with variations of "I've already seen all of those fights, nice try Dana lol!" What most people don't realize is that these reruns aren't being aimed at anyone who likes MMA enough to post on a message board. The UFC knows all the hardcore fans will go with a live card over a bunch of fights they've already seen. All the UFC wants to do is to keep the casual fans from flipping through the channels and stumbling on the Strikeforce card.

Which is why the UFC is turning into an entertainment league and will probably end up losing hardcore MMA fans in the long-run.

Yeah. With bouts like Nogueira vs. Couture, Machida vs. Rua, and Silva vs. Belfort headlining UFC events, it's a wonder that elitists aren't already running for the hills

Moving on, I'll likely be going with Strikeforce, though I do applaud an excellent counter-program on the part of Dana and Co. Having seen said fights, however, it'd be silly of me not to tune into a free event worthy of PPV.

UFS 104 did not live up to the hype as I knew it would not if I could get my $$$ back I would. That being said I think 106 looks very promising.

But no chance I watch re-runs I can see on YouTube to miss a live event with Fedor, Gegard, Rameau and Werdum battling.

BTW I think the free UFC 105 looks better than the paid UFC 104...I do...I really really really do

lol its a sad indictment of the UFC fanbase if theyre willing to watch rereuns instead of a pretty decent fight card.
