ZUFFA wants 100k subscribers but I really wonder if they can convince 10k of MMA nerds to sign up for things that can be already accessed online.

In theory the library is a cool concept but do you really trust the same company that used to charge for individual prelims to put up thousands of fights on there? Seeing is believing, not to mention all the streaming issues they might have for live events.

Can you log in now and rewatch last nights event? I DVR 80% of the events and watch the next day. If you cant watch after the original air time that would make it useless to me.

Well for me, I like watching old random fights while I work out. Just something entertaining even if I've seen it before because I might forget about something little, and I like to give the dubstep remixes a rest on the treadmill sometimes.

Also, when I have people over for a big fight, if they get here early, we like to watch some old fights for whoever's fighting. Like when Shogun fights, we nerd out on the 05 GP, or we'll watch some vintage Wanderlei vs Quinton or Sakuraba for a Silva fight.

Itunes. Spotify. Netflix etc. All of that content is also pirated and available online.
People don't mind paying for a legal option if it's priced fairly, and convenient.
There already is a fair amount of content up there.
If they also start putting up next day replays of PPV:s and FOX cards, it would be a very nice offer for fans outside the US. And the global market is potentially huge.
