One week "free cards are shit"
Next week "PPV cards are shit"

Are you complaining that the free card is good or that the PPV is bad..?

I can't keep up anymore..

Thank you. It just occurred to me and I appreciate the props.

I hate to break it to ya but MM headlining ain't gonna be anywhere near 300k PPV buys.

Mm headlined 174 and pulled in an astounding 95k in PPV buys...... Yes you read that right, no I didn't misplace a decimal point, Mighty Mouse pulled under 100k as a PPV headliner which was the worst of the modern era....

Yes.

Yes the UFC has been putting out some shit free cards.

Yes the UFC had been putting out some shit PPVs.



** I actually think that Ufn card with Reem looks awesome, but some recent card, even free ones have been pretty awful in terms of quality.

I didn't say that

The ufc think having MM on the card maybe will boost it but it isn't

The way this card is

Barao vs TJ
Mm vs whoever

The card wont do any higher than 300k

He dug down deep to beat Sandro and Straus.

Top to bottom the Fight Night card is far superior, and you csnt argue that the TJ/Barao rematch is worth the $60 on its own
