of course free fight cards on a national broadcast channel are going to draw much more viewership than a pay Per View event.
This is why Dana is always speaking about putting together a deal with a national tv outlet for both periodic major fight events and weekly cards for up and comers. Similar to the old days of boxing where we would get to see Ali vs Frazer on ABC or Friday Night Fights on USA or ESPN.
The Strikforce card this past weekend was very good but I doubt highly the Zuffa boys are worried much if at all.
