How many of you pay for PPV??

Hey i'm just wondering how many of you actually end up paying the 40bucks or so to buy these PPV events? How many of you go to bars like me to see it for next to nothing? How many of you just watch it all on the net? Lastly are there some people who only watch the TV programs but not the current fights?

personally if its not free on spike i see if my friends coast gaurd bar is playing it (they have like 6 BIG screens and dont even check for ID) and if not then i usually order it. seeing it online kinda sucks since the resolution is crap and you generally only get to see the main and SOMETIMES co-main event. id personally rather just get a late PPV than watch it on ShitTube.

I mix it up. I usually have friends over and we split it. It's pretty cheap that way and the others end up buying the food. It's actually a bit cheaper than going out to a bar and you get the best seats in the house. A few times at the bars you get the chumps who want to brawl at the end of the night =/

But bars are fun too though. Pub style wings and beer

Only as a last resort do I d/l the fights.

Usually I go to Hooters but sometimes I end up working night shifts on Saturday and don't have time to change and go to Hooters so I'll just order it at home. I watched UFC 74 at my house but for 76 i'll be going to hooters

My friend has HD, so whenever he is buying, I'm allready over there. We usually split the ppv though.

Ive never paid for a UFC PPV.

For a Pride one yes, but never for UFC ones. Not only because it was worth more, but also because they didnt show Pride events in many bars..

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