STFU fool.

I have supported the fighters by speaking out and bringing out against the BS that Zuffa does to mistreat the fighters, using the media to make fighters look bad, talking trash about fighters, blacklisting their sponsors, bullying them them into signing one-sided contracts, and so on and so forth.

What have you done to support the fighters?

Put more money into Dana's pocket so the money will hopefully trickle down to the fighters via "locker room bonus"?
Endless lols in this post!

Thank goodness the fighters have your words! They probably sleep well at night knowing everyday you stream and then use your word to explain fighters are more valuable than what UFC pays them.

And oh, I forgot. Watching since UFC 1 means you shouldn't pay for anything anymore. I understand now. Good job.

I buy it occasionally but it pissed me off last weekend.
I wanted to see the best fights from April, as I missed those 4 cards due to being out of the country...none of the fights I searched for, were on there. Which is weird, given it's been almost 4months and 3 of those 4 cards, were on free TV.

Whether or not you like or dislike Fight Pass, you can't deny that it's definitely not going to break the bank on anyone for monthly fees.

I definitely like the early prelims being more dependable. That facebook thing was just brutal, not to mention having to sign in to effing facebook. Ugh.

As long as they keep adding more content and fine tune it some more in the process, works for me.

it comes off a bit organized and phony - you'll notice the names change here and there but the bits and sound bites they use sound the same.
It comes off as organized because it is. I know my shit and I have a lot to say. Ive had to repeat it so many times. But it seems as though because I can defend my position and have a lot to say, people like you want to point the finger.

I like the UFC. Its the top league in my favorite sport. But there are still things about it I dont like and things I complain about. I also enjoy other promotions just as well. A bi part of the reason I like the new look UFC that many dont is because I know a lot of the "no name" prospects because I follow a lot of non Zuffa MMA. I liked the smaller weights in WEC, Bellator, Tachi Palace, etc. Ive always liked the women ever since I first watched Satoko Shinashi. So when I talk about the product, it really is because I like it.

I really wish we could all come on here and talk about stuff without people calling each other hater, nuthugger, shill, troll, etc. If you actually had a conversation with me, you would know I say the things I do because I like the sport. That should be okay.

The free TV cards will be the ones most heavily encumbered by broadcasting rights, as they're probably exclusively Fox property (to broadcast) for a certain amount of time.

Most guys like Meltzer and Okamoto seem to suggest that in time, PPV level events will be on Fight Pass. My guess is that by the end of the year, a big big show will be on Fight Pass.
Wouldnt surprise me. Ppv model is dying. I dont know anyone outside of those who profit from it that would be sad if they did away with it.

My question would be how much the price for Fight Pass would go up.
