Yeah, thats what I do. Being in Australia we are so far ahead of you guys (a 9pm PPV is live in Aus at about 12pm the next day) it is troublesome to watch in the middle of the day. So I usually just wait till the monday (if the PPV is Saturday) and watch it then.

Now that I'm in college and thus live in the dorms, I got lucky because one of the resident advisors hosts UFC PPVs in his room. He has a big screen and all the works, and charges nothing to watch it, unless you want food then he charges $5. Sweet deal.
your lucky most of the kids in my dorm have no idea what the ufc or mma is so the only way for me to watch the ppv's is either online the next day or have my mom record them on the dvr for when i go home.

I buy every event

I luv MMA and gladly shell out the bucks for each event.

Going out to the movies with the kids costs me 45 bucks for tickets and another 30 for popcorn and drink... spending 50 bucks on a PPV event once a month is a drop in the bucket.

I used to buy every boxing event too... but since they started making crap cards and BS matchups I gave up on em.

If only they offered more MMA events other than UFC I would gladly pay for those as well

Thanks for all the replies guys!

Personally I buy about 4 PPV a year and I stream the ones I am less interested in (or cannot afford since I am a very poor Uni student).

I buy three or four good PPV's a year. I'd watch some of the less interesting PPV's in a bar but I don't know any bars that host MMA PPV's. I have yet to stream a pirate broadcast, not because I'm above it I just have always had an alternative.

While i did vote yes I live in the UK where Pay per Views are rare, in which case me or my mates will fork over the £15 which is a lot less than US fans even factoring in currency fluctuations.

In the UK most UFC events are shown the next day for free if you subscripe to cable/satellite tv.

A $200 investment in a FTA sat gives me free t.v./ppv so I think we need a forth category.

Just tack Free To Air onto the last category, it literally is streaming.

It should be with the first except the paying part... if we would tack it.
