Personally Id say that was one of the best cards this year, everyfight was fun.

And you say you have to have a Setanta subscription, how much do they go for?? Like 12-15 pound a month is what I heard?? that roughly works out to $30 canadian dollars, a damn site cheaper than what most people over hear in North America pay.

Loads cheaper considering there tends to be more than one event a month when you add in Fight Nights. Plus TUF.

And you get loads of football too.

I should probably get it. Just need to find a way to trick freeview.

you get loads of repeats and TUF airs once a week in a 6 week period......point is you are gettin fed a bunch of pre-picked programming consultd on with maqjor t.v execs...I.E.......spike t.v......


Point is a ton of commercials and product driven ad's.....

I'd rather pay for a good card with no bullshit......

yeah this was the first card in a long while that I liked all the fights. I dont watch the ppv's for the names I watch them because I like watching MMA. This card was great IMO. I would of liked more ground game and different refs but all in all I really enjoyed it and I thought they were a good headliner but yeah not everyone is gunna like the people that headline a card.

Meh, I'd rather pay a third of the price and ignore the adverts.

To be honest I wasn't that excited about this card, given it had a main event I couldn't give a dam about.
However, the fights were pretty awesome, hardly any going to decision, Tonnes of highlight reel KO's and another BJJ clinic from Maia.
But tbh there is no way stevens v sanchex should headline. I can appreciate that they dont make the PPV money on UK events so maybe title shots are not viable, but could have at least given us a number 1 contender match or something or a big name. Sounds bit silly after such a good event but you get more excited for big match ups.

To be honest I was watching it with some mates so we didn't really mind the adverts as it gave us time to chat and watch a rabbit try to **** some kittens.

The show was good. But Joe vs Diego isnt worthy of headlining a Monday Night Raw

BROCK!!
