    It has nothing to do with this main event, and everything to do with people already not buying the PPVs.

    And just sit back and think to yourself of EVERYTHING that had to of happen to make this season of TUF happen and the title fight happening.

    Chael was about the 8th or 9th option.
    You speak in absolutes far too often.

    Some people don't want to support fights because they don't want watered down cards to be the norm, which is an acceptable view.

    The internet is a resource, so you are a fool and a lair if you say that you have never watched or used copyright material on the internet.

    Much rather be stoned in my house, with my munchies, smoking inside, watching the fights...wearing my tapout shirt
    just not much thing brother BUT I am BY FAR the loudest person around when I watch MMA, true story. I am worse than Joe Rogan haha

    Me too! That's why I don't mind streaming it at home.

For example, I never have a group of friends over for a UFC regularly BUT the few times I do like Fourth of July, New Years, some Halloween parties, I'll probably have everyone chip in and buy the fight. Same thing with most of my friends. We'd either go out into a public setting or watch it individually the next day if we have other plans. Which brings me to point B...TOO MANY EVENTS.

    I never minded "sacrificing" a Saturday a month for a great, stacked card of great fights. But when there's stretches for 7 weeks with a SF event, a Bellator every Friday and a UFC on FX, Fuel, Fox and PPV...Sorry I don't care. There will be one or two big name fights and "potential" undercard scraps but simply not enough to lure me away from going out with friends, girlfriend, birthdays, engagements, etc.

    I will gladly pay $45 to watch Sonnen get his ass kicked (again).

    Let's not make it about Chael being the reason you are too cheap to order the PPV.

    end it with a left
    Eh last time I streamed the fights it took me almost until the main event to figure how to switch it from Spanish to English. I think I will go to the bar where my buddy bounces and watch it for free. Maybe spend $20 on beers

    If, when you say 'dummies,' you're referring to those of us here who discussed, even vented about, the 151 situation. Those of us who made fun of Jones for turning down a stupid, and easily winnable fight despite the implications to his coworkers. Well, then, go fuck yourself, dummy.

    EDIT: Of course if you weren't insulting most of the board, calling us dummies (something you've been doing a lot and pisses me off), then I take that back. I just disagree with you about what people were really saying after 151 with regards to Sonnen's merit.
