Weds Night is not the Night for Fight Night

Not very impressive attendance for a UFC. More like the numbers back in the day at the regional colorado shows!

I sincerely doubt they are expecting weekday fights to do big numbers.

I really wish they'd keep it on a weekday. I work every weekend so I miss all PPVs not unless I am able to get passed the firewall at work.

I liked it on the weekday. It's nice having something to look forward to in the middle of the week.

I like it too but im not sure they had a few days before a big card. This card was overshadowed. If they had it last weeknit would have made more sense.

Of course there are going to be fewer people go to a live show on a Wednesday. Especially when the event is lacking big names/fights.

People aren't going to skip work or leave work early or go out and stay up late on a weekday just to spend a lot of money to see mediocre fighters...

I knew the event was coming up but and just assumed it would be on the weekend.

Checked the forum on Thursday and was greeted with threads full of spoilers
