I don't really care..cause we don't get HBO up here. Unless it is premium cable channels which would be more expensive that just paying for the PPV.

Though not having Rogan doing colour is a bonus for me.

MY FIVE

1. George St. Pierre
2. Anderson Silva
3. Fedor Emelianenko
4. Don Frye
5. Kenny Florian

Also, the current set-up with Spike and PPV's seems to be working perfectly. I don't see why they would change it.

Exactly what I would have posted. Right on for me.

Yes, that's true. But think about it, the UFC is only getting bigger and with that popularity comes power. Even though HBO has fallen through, someone would be there to snap it up.

Basically: The UFC is in the powerseat.
