Well I tend to disagree. We haven't even begun to feel the impact from this yet. I'm not saying they won't weather the storm. I don't think they'll get the numbers their use to on cards that are just thrown together. I know as of now that the UFC is one of the places I'm cutting out. How many of you get together with a group of guys and split the cost. Oh and for the ones that don't pay you can't really factor yourself into this equation and can't really comment you're either stealing it or leaching off of someone else. The UFC has to paint a pretty picture because of investors and sponsors. Now maybe buddies will get together but maybe where they were selling three PPV's now it will only be one.

for ufc 88 I watched it at 115 bourbon street and talked about it for a few with Clay Guida afterward.

Never know who you're going to run into at the bar watching UFC.
