That's not the point at all.

How hard is this for some people to understand...

The UFC doesn't care if you would buy more PPVs. They really don't give a crap. What they want is to sell more PPVs total. They don't care about hardcore fans that feel they need to watch every single event. They care about making money and they are doing everything correctly to do so.

You're right, and I understand perfectly. But I was answering a question. As a fan, that isn't what I'd prefer for the reasons I stated previously.

The UFC is going for quantity over quality, and that sucks.

I wouldnt say that, the last couple PPVs were supposed to be good, but too many injuries happened in a short period of time to the top fighters in the UFC.

The UFC is being a business. I am perfectly fine with that because I would rather them act as a business then go out of business.

If you can't afford to buy every PPV event and want to watch them all to stay in the loop then watch them online. White can complain about it all he wants but there are some of us that want to see every fight but can't afford it and there isn't anything he can do about it.

Personally, I can't afford every event, not to mention, I don't even have access to PPV. I wish they'd strike a good deal with a network, also.

That's a shame, but nobody expected it to do good numbers after all the injuries.

I have a feeling 111, 112 and 113 will get the numbers up again though, those cards look stacked.

Favourite Fighters:

Dan Hardy
Paul Daley
Georges St-Pierre
Nick Diaz
Cain Velasquez
Frank Mir
Demian Maia
All the British MMA guys
And... Fedor!

I can honestly understand people not being able to afford the $50 a month, sometimes twice, and that is a fair argument.

I just don't understand how people can claim to be MMA fans but think that, for other reasons than the price, there should be less events. I mean come on? What kind of fan doesn't want more events?

Just cause there can't be huge names on every card means that young inexperienced fighters get a chance and can be given the opportunity to become a star. Diluting the talent pool is nonsense.

A network deal and more cards would be awesome for me like.

What the UFC should do is get a network deal, and have the huge cards that are stacked with championships on the line to be PPVs and have more seats in the arena.

If that happens, I think the sport will really boom because more people will watch it and more people will pay them for airtime.
Most definitely, but I'm not holding my breath.
