    Bar/UFC viewing party is the way to go. Too many lackluster cards to just keep purchasing them over and over when the dont always live up to the price tag.

    I dont have a NIKE endorsement, so money gets tight at times. Major thanks to the UFC for putting on killer free shows here lately!

    I didn't look to see but I would laugh my ass off if any of the people who do not pay for PPVs are assholes enough to be the ones bitching at Jones for no reason.

    Plus Kevo would have kicked my ass.
    I'd let TBEAR take care of that for me

    What's better for the artist? Paying 1-2 dollars a song for the small portion of an album instead of the 20-25 for the CD or pirating and allowing 0 revenue to the artist? Bars pay a few hundred, I believe. That's why I have always wondered how they incorporate it into the buyrate numbers. I do believe that the UFC charges based on capacity of the bar or restaurant.

    The latter idea of people not wanting to incriminate or open themselves to the criticism of others is true.

    I clicked I would have bought it, because normally I go half with a friend of mine. But, seeing as how he works the night shift I would have probably ended up watching this one at a bar had he not been able to get out of working.

    I would have streamed it, although I "usually" buy them.

    For me to buy a PPV nowadays its got to either A.) be a good all round card, B.) Have some sort or amazing superfight im really interested in, or C.) Be a special occassion, like a birthday or something.

    151 wasnt a good all round card. And it wasnt on a special occassion for me. And Jones/Hendo is a good fight...but not "one for the ages" imo. If the card would've had a couple more meaningfull fights then I would have most likely bought it.

    But Zuffa isnt getting $60 out of me by throwing Jones/Hendo on after 3 hours of undercard-type fights.
