View Poll Results: Would you order a PPV? Tune in to the next free card?

Ugh, I'd rather watch reruns of "Glee." 3 15.00%
The card wasn't that bad, I might not order any PPVs but I'd tune into the next free one. 6 30.00%
The card was dull, but the promo for 153 wasn't. I'd buy it. 2 10.00%
I'd definitely start watching every card available after this. 9 45.00%

Was that on TV? Because I'm trying to focus on the publicity aspect.

And the problem was more than the shortness of the card. Burger/Hieron and Dodson/Da Silva were both really dull, IMO. Apart from Dodson (some of the time) and Jake's takedown they all seemed to be waiting for an opportunity, rather than trying to create opportunities.

It's a strategic issue. Do you see the free cards as throw away cards where the fights that aren't quite good enough for PPV are dumped, or as cards that should be carefully picked to give people a taste that will have them coming back for more?

Assuming the latter, do you think this card did it's job?

If this was my first ever one, then yeah I'd watch it. I saw a dude who looks like an incan statue brutally KO another dude, that would be enough to keep me interested really. I wouldnt be rocketing out to buy the next PPV but I'd stay tuned for the next free card.

Edit: Lmao I almost word for word quoted a poll option.

I think so, just not on FX.

Last night's card was horrible. Not a single good fight on the main card. But the preview for 153 was pretty sweet. Really highlighting Silva's matrix-esque moves and Bonnar's bloody wars. Honestly those highlights were better than anything on the main card. Hell the fight on the Ultimate Fighter was better than anything on the main card.

Seems the UFC agrees as only one of the "Of The Night" bonuses went to a main card fight. Justin Edwards for Sub of the Night. Both of the others went to Prelim fights. Michael Johnson for KO of the Night and Nunes/Bart for FOTN.

Was hoping Browne vs Silva would make up for the snoozefest last night, Browne then injures himself thinking he's Jean-Claude Van Dammme before the fight really got started.

Brutal.

what? last nights card was awesome i had a blast, a lot of fun fights and 2 great comebacks...how could that card not turn you into a fan??

man MMA fans are becoming more and more like wrestling fans...i guess its because many are just cross-over fans and now instead of bitching about wrestling they bitch about MMA, i stopped going to wrestling forums because 90% of the shit ppl talk about is negative "oh this sucks, they should have done this, its not as good as it used to be...bla bla bla" MMA fans have gotten to that point where they pretty much just bitch about 90% of things, they want the "good old days back" but guess what? you guys will never stop watching...UFC has built that hardcore fansbase that even if they are unsatisfied they tune in, just like WWE

i miss the days when ppl actually enjoyed fights and created threads to break down a fight...that was fun... and not to whine about irrelevant crap, its become the cool thing on the internet to shit on the UFC and its getting boring IMO, MMA is doing just fine, their "fans" are the ones who need to take a step back and think about why they started watching in the 1st place

end rant/
