Question: Will you buy UFC 157?

Will you order UFC 157?

It's nothing personal against women, I'm simply just not entertained by women in combat sports. It's like watching a WNBA game. I've seen previous fights and personally find them boring (even street fights). A part of me hopes the numbers go poorly so there wont be more women main events.

I won't be, but I stream all the events so that's not really saying much.

I guess if I think about it, if I didn't stream would I buy it... probably not. Hendo vs. Machida is the only fight on the card that I'm actaully interested in. The other fights I'd watch if they were free on TV or something, but I'd only lay down money to see Hendo vs. Machida.

Since there are no other supporting fights that are interesting to me, I'd not buy it and just watch Hendo vs. Machida online for free the next day.

While I won't be buying it myself, I will be going to the local sports bar and watching there and will be supporting that they are putting it on. While I respect your opinion of not enjoying WMMA, I respond by saying. Don't you put that evil on me Ricky Bobby! Title defenses will always be the main event though, so I don't really have any worries so long as Carmouche crushing Rowdy doesn't kill the division.

Thanks to Killz for the great sig!

Can't justify buying it for one marquee fight. I'm sure I'll tune in, but it's not worth $65. Not even close.

See i'm in a tough spot. I would like to buy this too help support WMMA, because i want to see it do well. Though at the same time I'm pissed off at the UFC so I'd end up streaming. But ultimately I have to work so it's out of the question

I almost always go out to a bar to watch them. I have only actually purchased a few here and there. But I won't be around to watch the card at all tonight anyway.

Yep, Machida/Hendo on it's own is worth 55 bucks to me, everything else is just a bonus.
