This doesnt really prove anything in my eyes. I've been to a number of places to watch UFC events and the crowd is always great. I could go out to another city and ask 50 people about a sports team and edit out 30 of them that did name a team and keep all the ones that dont know.

Unless they're joining me in hugging BJ's nuts and riding the **** Ben Henderson warwagon I don't give a shit where you're at.

I would probably struggle to find anyone in my home town that would know the next time WWE will be around here, and wouldnt be able to tell me one current champion. That being said, it's a million times bigger than UFC.

Also, I will be attending the BJ nuthugging session followed by the **** Bendo and his religion campeign.

Wierd to see Nate Diaz, the guy who snuck off to attend a BJ Penn training class during TUF, headlining a Lightweight title fight above BJ.

The fact that today's WWE is bigger than UFC anywhere is just....terrifying.

I was just thinking of how much the WWE must make. WWE are in the same building as this UFC event next week. They had 0 build up to their storylines, no returns, no title matches, no scheduled guest appearances....nothing at all, and they will still sell the place out easily. UFC on the other hand will be putting on it's best card, except Brazil, in ages, and wont even reach the same numbers. Shits insane.

I went to the last Seattle event, the crowd was pretty good...can't wait for the next event..Both are sold-out..so should be a loud venue..

People in Seattle in general are pretty insulated to themselves..especially downtown, you can ask for directions, and unless its within there day to day pattern chances are you will get an "Im not sure"...and Im talking about hotel concierges..c'mon man...


When is the WWE in Seattle?? can't find it on there website...Ufc on Fox 5 sold out in about two weeks, same time-frame as the Ufc Fight Night in 2011, the Portland and Vancouver crowds help too seeing as they have never had a PPV event, but the Fox card is near PPV quality

Ufc Events Attended:

Ufc Fight Night: Davis Vs Nogueira, Ufc 131, Ufc 143, Ufc 148, Ufc on Fox 5, Ufc 156, Ufc on Fox 8
