No it's really just brazil Japan and USA that watch. Most of the socialist countries lik Canada and Europe have so many other problems that the people don't have much time to pursue entertainment.

There's no PPV concept in Germany. The only thing we have is pay channels that offer live PPVs (mostly WWE and boxing) in the middle of the night for free. I'd think that it's the same for the rest of Europe (minus the UK).

We're just too socialist here in the great country of Europe.

That's so crazy, but it's great to know there re people like you out there in Europe and Canada who are willing to scratch the surface and stay up late o watch UFC on the pay channels before you have to go back to work in the mines the next day with no sleep.

Freedom will prevail keep up hope my friend!

Pretty jealous over here... it kills me to miss an event but at the same time, i'm setting myself up for debt paying for every single event (most of the time anyway)

There's no such thing as free MMA because the media hates MMA so much they banned it.

Over here in the uk we dnt pay for UFC events. Events are shown on Espn and that comes free with my tv package. Down side is that I have to sit up till 3am to watch events, fox cards start at 1am.

Diaz..Edgar.. Cormier.. Cain.. Mir.. Overeem.. Jon Jones
