UFC 129 set to begin at 9 pm NOT 10

And apparently this may become the norm. Thoughts? Does the one hour difference matter?

I personally like it, living in Florida the 10 p.m. start time seems forever away when I start the day.

Yes. Much better, I'd much rather wait until 2am than 3am for the event to start. I get to go to bed before 5am this way.

I hate it, really really hate it. Often at work we get in at like 7pm an I am in a race to get cleaned up and find someplace to watch the fights that start at 8pm. If I get in at 7 and they start at 7, then I am screwed.

I would just get up at 5am, unfortunately I often get up the early to be at work by 6am.

I normally sleep before an event now, but if it's 2am I'll stay up from now on (Prelims at 1am, no point sleeping before hand really)

This would be good. I struggle through many cards to make it the whole way through because I get up at 4am every day. UFC on versus I missed the Munoz fight when I closed my eyes for just a second...

I think the general consensus here is that I should just ban all of you...
