Defnitely not worth 49.95 to see one fight that I give a damn about.

Its cards like this that are why the interwebz were invented.

In fact most of them will be worse off because they will get dropped all together, because without there own specialist promotion they wont get as mush air time to suport as big divisions, or relevant spaces on UFC cards which wont help there sponsorships.

What may help one or two big stars like Aldo, Cruz, Fabar will hurt the masses, and besides Zuffa could of chose to keep the WEC and just treat its stars better money wise anyway without the need to merge to the UFC, so what you are saying just does not support the facts of what is actually happening.

As for calling myself a fan and not supporting these divisions, I believe these divisions where getting far better support as the WEC been a specialist promotion dedicated to supporting them, than they will ever get in the UFC.

A for or final comment about downloading I subscribe to ESPN which is the only way to get UFC where I live.

Oh and I missed your point about the camps, and you claiming they will get better camps, they all where out of the same camps anyway, the UFC and WEC fighters where training out of the same camps long before the merge as do SF and even Bellator fighters, in fact I bet these camps have lots of other guys doing regional shows, so it will have fcuk all effect on where they train or how much.
i meant that with more money they could traine properly, in better camps

yes i know they are still getting paid the same amount they were in WEC, its part of the contract, but once that contract is up, they actual good BWs and FWs will start making more money, yeah im sure hominick always got a 129,000 dollar bonus in WEC for FOTN

and being in the UFC gives you a lot more sponsership money, every BW and FW have said this, they now can get the same sponsers that the big boys in the UFC get, why? because sponsers are all about how many ppl are watching you, not many ppl were watching WEC

main card on the UFC gets you big sponser money, sure many bad BWs and FWs will get cut, how is this bad? if you're not good enough to fight in the UFC you get cut

every fighter has said how its been better for them buisness wise, also now they get the famous dana bonuses if they're on his good side

the only one complaining about this is you because you cant watch them for free now

i bet they are much happier in the UFC than the WEC

i get just about every UFC event. cuz for me its not just watching the fights, if having people come over too and ordering pizza or cooking up some good party food and getting so drunk that most of the night ends up a blur.... $50 bucks a month for a good reason to party is fine by me.

I'm with Jugg... good reason to get people over and talk MMA..

The only note is that I will never pay to watch Brock Lesnar fight. EVER!

But it looks like I wont have to worry too much as it looks like hes done anyhow.

No. And personally the UFC is screwing us more and more. Even though they are growing and making mass amounts of money...they have given us less and less.

Not too long ago I saw Hendo/Rampage title unification fight on free TV. I saw Anderson Silva on free TV. I saw stacked cards like UFC 92 and UFC 100. I saw Dana White say he would make it up to fans who bought that crap that was Maia-Silva at UFC 112.

Now, less meaningful fights for free. Cards that lose main events due to injury should become free cards on Spike somehow. Or they should stagger the price of these things. Keep the best cards where they are and perhaps this one for 39.95 instead of 54.95. Some of these cards are ridiculous to pay 55 bucks for. I hope this card does terrible on PPV so maybe they get a hint.

They have given paying fans less and less. While creating more and more PPV for us to buy up.

Oh well, I will just exercise my right not to buy it and find a decent stream for FREE.

It's one of the most exciting cards of the year, the only reason people are making such a fuss is because Rampage is fighting a wrestler and not a striker like originally planned, the funny thing is Hamill's better than Silva, but he won't mean mug Rampage and try to act like some badass.

As always I'll be buying, I can't miss any UFC, I'll for sure be watching this hoping Alves delivers.

lol I get every single event just a matter of will I watch it or not, and the answer is yep ofc I'll watch this card. Rampage, Alves, Roy Vs Mir, and the really tall guy Struve they all make it quite intresting and oh Stann vs Santiagio is quite an underrated fight too.

Rampage retired a long time ago, am sorry but all thats left now is an unexciting Quinton Jackson who is just there for a paycheck and has done nothing exciting in the last 2 years.

Haha, i hope they don't use the "Rampage just knocked out Hammil, the last man to defeat Bones" marketing ploy!

On a side note, i'm really pissed off with Thiago for roiding, Thiago VS Rampage would have been a war.
