LOL, no way would UFC take off PPV. With the money they are raking in from PPV's you have to be nuts to believe that. Depending on where you live it costs $34.95 - $39.95 per PPV, if the buy rate is 200,000 do you think they will just throw that kind of money away? NO WAY, think before you post friend. Maybe a T.V. show on ESPN, that is most likely...

ahahahaha PPV is their biggest buy rate, i ment they would put UFC as like a show part of ESPN. . . . either that or they might merge with some company. . . but most likely talk about airing on HBO

Maybe the November fight between Silvia and Liddell (assuming Liddell wins) will be a Pride vs UFC PPV.

That would be sick but...haha probably just dreaming.
