Thats the way I see it, I won't be buying it, doubt I will even try to stream it. I seem to be a little turned off by Dana and the UFC lately for some reason...
I would like to see Henderson fight but like you said, thats a lot of money.
i just checked my PPV chanel and my cost is $50.00, If it ever gets to $65.00 for me to watch a UFC event I think I would just stream them all.

Not paying for this one, celebrating my Bday with buddies at a local Boston Pizza to watch that and the Leaf game.

There's a few good fights, Hendo vs. Machida is the one that really gets me pumped.

To be quite honest though, the free FOX/FX fights have been much more stacked as of late opposed to the PPV cards.

I won't spend another penny on the UFC until Dana White is gone. Streams & torrents until then.

IMO this is a good PPV.

We got Sam Stout, Schaub vs Lavar,Kos vs Robbie Lawler, Uriaj Faber vs Ivan, Machida vs Dan and the first ever Female fight in the UFC Ronda vs Liz Carmouche. And every time i have watched women fight they have brought it.

If i wasnt working id have gladly spend 50$ on it.

Wow. Kind of expensive for a single event PPV. I pay like U$25 monthly and I get every single UFC event in the year, except those cancelled by Jones

Are you from Europe? Seems like a bit of a trade off considering how late it airs over there.

Streaming is the way to go at the moment.

Every event is a gamble, you put a chunk of cash on something that you have no idea if you will even enjoy it. I can't tell you how many events I've bought where I wish I could have gotten my money back. It's the same reason I pay $7 a month for Netflix or $15 a month for Gamefly, I watch/play probably $200-300 worth of content a month from each of those had I paid to buy them, and half/most the time I'm disappointed greatly. People save a ridiculous amount of money with those programs.

I wish the UFC had a "pay X amount for X amount of events", at a reasonable price that you get a good discount for, I'd jump on that. Until then, free streams for me.

No. That's in Brasil. You pay that extra along you cable so you get all events, interviews, Ultimate Insider, TUF and local circuits. It's a channel devoted to Combat sports 24/7.

Not buying. Seem's like a decent event but with strained cash at the moment I can't afford the paper views. It was simple when I lived in the UK but it's far too costly here in the states.

Top 7 Favorite Fighters at the moment

1. Forrest Griffin
2. Clay Guida
3. Shane Carwin
4. Jon Fitch
5. Chuck Liddell
6. Wanderlei Silva
7. Chris Leben
