I usually buy them with a couple friends depending on who's town we're in on the night of the fights.

After that I download them and burn them for future rewatching.

People tend to buy the stacked cards and watch lesser ones at the bar. Those peeps got it all backwards.
I prefer to buy smaller cards and go to the bar for the huge ones,
it's the atmosphere. Streaming them is good, especially for the EXC ones I can't see(don't have showtime).
Streaming live UFC's is troublesome, too many peeps get on there when it's a big card and tends to make the stream
lag pretty bad. (didn't seem to be much of a problem on this last UFC.)

My friend's dad works for the cable company, so he gets the PPVs at half price, we then split it 2 ways once again, and so I pay 10 bucks. I buy 'em every time they're on.

There's even alternatives for those of us that have stone-age dial-up and have to wait hours and hours for a video to download. The un-mentioned black box is a favourite of mine because I was able to watch all of the sporting events, payperview movies and porn I wanted, for free. It's great when that yearly bill is really starting to stack up, but I usually choose to support the organization and pay for the show, or buy the DVD later.

I pay a small fee at a website which I will not disclose to get a dedicated stream to my 22" widescreen computer monitor. I do pay for the really good ones to watch on a 60" tho, but only if it's really good.

It's hardly a secret guys.

Demian Maia may be the Fred Astaire of jiu-jitsu, but it’s too bad Silva is the Gene Kelly of kicking everyone’s ass.
