On the HBO thing, UFC is the product and I am interested too, to see if HBO is paying enough for the right to broadcast UFC. Seems that UFC would be dumb to agree to this deal unless HBO is paying enough money to offset the profit loss from not having PPV.
I should have made myself clear earlier but I don't mean UFC is going to by Elite next week. I would be suprised if that happens in the next 2 yrs. that is the timeline I am talking about. Execs at Showtime are not going to want to pay money on a product that is losing and i think it is going to lose.
Also, I am not dissing the fighters. This is strictly an opinion on the business aspect, I don't criticize fighters like this, check my posts.
A groan of tedium escapes me...
