This^

The time difference is the main reason why everyone I know that watches MMA just downloads the PPV and watches it on Sunday morning.

You mean the main card, right? Cause the prelims start at 10:30 pm, I think.
Kinda late, but it's a saturday night, so it isn't so bad.

Didn't Bigfoot vs Hunt take place 13:00 local time or some craziness like that. It seems stupid. Why not just have the event take place in the US if you wanna make it fit the US time.

Quite impossible to be a MMA fan and live in Holland (can't speak for Europe). Unless you're a fighter yourself, you have a relative that is or just a fanatic.

Don't think there has ever been a tv show covering anything about the UFC or their fighters. Well, MTV has a gaming program which had Stefan Struve in it I think when the new UFC game was released a few decades back. Furhtermore, nothing. Nobody knows about Bas Rutten. People just know a little bit about K1/kickboxing and most of them think it consists out of hostile people because Badr Hari can't control himself (and at the time of his arrest he was sleeping with a famous money grasping milf, a white blondie, good Muslim ).

Actually Im sort of happy there is very little MMA coverage here (Im also Dutch). Theres nothing I hate more than people talking about something they dont know shit about. Because that's what would happen if MMA gets popular here, everyone will have an opinion about it.

But I think it's a little strange that K-1 and kickboxing shows are on TV every single week here, but not one ounce of MMA anywhere. Maybe they think it's too brutal or something. Isnt cage fighting still illegal here? Not sure but I think it is. I think it's still pretty much frowned upon anyway. I just wish there were more European UFC cards so we can watch it at reasonable hours instead of 3 am at night
