is ufc not "cool" anymore?

crazy amount of empty seats in the stadium right now

at ufc's "peak" a couple years ago every show was either sold out or close to it. but ufc hasn't sold out an arena outside a big ppv in the US for nearly a year or more

are people just not that interested in going to live events anymore? are they priced out or are the casuals just not as high on it as they were a couple years ago

Is it in the US tonight?

EDIT: I've been busy all week so don't know much about tonight's card. Wasn't sure if it was the fight pass card.

it's a very early card. A lot of those people are still at work.

But it's also true that less people than ever are going to the prelims.

It's a weekday card and the main card hasn't started yet. Take it easy.

Ticket prices are getting too high for casuals and the cards are getting more and more 'watered down' in their eyes. They want names like Rampage and Silva constantly, not Rockhold etc. It's unfortunate.

A Wednesday card with COASTas in the main event isn't sold out? no way!

What everyone else said. It's kind of common sense.

Don't fear UFC is still "cool" whatever the fuck that means.
