Sorry if this has been posted already. It looks like UFC 70 will air on HBO. Good news for those of us who are HBO subscribers.

Correct, it will still be on regular PPV TV, just free to HBO subscribers. Also I believe it will be on a delay on HBO as well.

Go Bears...kick Indy's arse for us Pat's fans.

BTW...I have HBO, that' awesome that 70 will be on HBO, I would assume that non-subscriber's will be able to get it through PPV.

You can't have everything. Where would you put it?

ufc on hbo

No good can come from the ufc being on HBO.The bigger the ufc gets the more mainstream it will get and therefore less and less appealing.I don't know...the whole thing just leaves a bad taste in my mouth.

why is more mainstream less appealing? the bigger it gets, the more money it makes, the better fighters it gets, the better the ppv's get, the better the free fights get....seems like a win win to me.

Top 5 fav. fighters (in order)

1. GSP
2. Franklin
3. Lesnar
4. Forrest
5. Big Nog

It's all up to Zuffa how far they take this and how well they control it, you have good points but I think if it's done right it will help the sport more than it will hurt it.
