Because its a fact that watching something on TV you see a whole lot more.

the only reason you go to a live event is because of the atmosphere and the day out.

Totally agree. I don't know why anyone would pay hundreds to go to a UFC event when you just end up watching the monitor anyway, plus you don't get commentary.

I have been to events before (not UFC, smaller UK shows) and I will only ever go if one of the guys I train with is fighting. Otherwise TV is the way to go.

At the events people can purchase a headset that allows you to hear the commentary. I have never been to an event but everyone around here says its something that you NEED to experience if your a MMA fan.

Well if what he is watching is the PPV feed then he might want to see how his product is being presented at all times.

Only if you are a fan of the entertainment factor of MMA. If your main purpose of watching MMA fights is to analyse elite fighters to improve your own fighting game you don't necessarily need to go there, because as people have already mentioned before your view is better on screen than watching it live. If you haven't competed yet, but intend to do so, it might be nice to get an impression of the atmosphere though.

I'm attending every MMA event in Estonia. Sure they aren't the biggest events(MMA Raju 7 had like 1000 people i think) but it beat's the hell out of watching it from the TV. The atmosphere is just awesome.

I thought it was pretty weird when you saw in one of his blogs him staring down as a small screen in the Silva vs Belfort fight and only after he landed the kick did he look up. I went to one UFC and was about 50 feet further away than Dana and I spent less than half the time watching the screen as it was still a fine view.

Also as strange as it sounds when you're that close up you can't see everything. Usually one fighter has their back against you so you can't see all the angles. I had front row seats to a fight before and in some cases it was difficult to see what was going on so I had to kinda stand up. The TV monitors show the complete angles and is truly the best way to view a fight.
