I love how a bunch of people will say they don't buy the PPV events but then complain about how fighters aren't paid enough

90% of fighters dont get a cut from PPV. Only huge stars do.

And btw, ppl who dont buy PPV can also go to bars..

Bring back knees strikes on grounded opponents.. Give me good arguments for not having them for crying out loud.

I pay the $40 because I live with my 2 bros.

How far can $40 go in a bar for 3 grown men?

1 beer and 12 wings each?

**** that noise.

Id rather pay the $40 for the PPV, buy ribs, cheap beer (cheaper than in a bar) and have a whole couch to myself.

I download, I feel it is better because.

-It is free
-It is saved on your computer for easy access
-No ad breaks
-You can skip some parts or jump to fights you wanna see first
-You can easily burn it onto a dvd to watch it with friends later

The main downside I see is that you usually get it about 3-4 hours after the event, thus hightening the risk of spoilers. But hey, all you have to do is not go online. It's not like MMA is covered here in Australia, so I don't have to worry about TV spoilers.

With the arrival of HD PPV, I order all the fights. Before that I would go to the bar.

I have to wait until the torrent is up.
No networks show these events in Sweden.
Not any I know of atleast.

But they did bradcast the last, UFC 75 Live on a free channel. I did not know that, so I flipped over right before the Bisping fight.
Still had to download the torrent to see the fights I had missed.
