Talking Good call on the prelims

I think it is a great idea to show the prelims on spike before the main card. it was what i was bitching about all along. now if dana can keep it up....

Well it's good marketing. I wonder how many people bought the PPV because they liked what they saw on spike?

Bonus: It gives us another reason to argue about which fights SHOULD be on the prelims...

I think its a great setup, since even when you pay for the ppv you never get to see most the pre-lims.

I think the only reason Dana did it in the first place was to see if it would help in PPV sales, and if the research shows a increase in sales we will no doubt see it happen in the future.
After seeing what Dana/UFC did with Hendo and his clothes line I am convinced the one and only reason they do anything is for profit.....IMO anyway..

and I like the prelims on spike for sure!!!!
