All this has done for me personally is distance myself and not care about upcoming fights as much and disconnect with the UFC. My point is even though many fight pass cards aren't great, at least it kept my interest to watch it and see some of the up and comers and get to know them and w fight pass I'll have no clue or connect to any of these guys. It's not the fact that fight pass costs money as that's not the problem I just don't wanna watch fights unless I'm there live or in front of a big HD TV.
I watch fight pass on my HD TV and it looks really good

It's no different than if these guys were on the lower-tier leagues and you paid $10-20 for their PPV. The only real difference is that you're giving $10 to the UFC and not a third-party company.
I would have watched the card if it was on FS2. I might not have known all of the fighters but thats how we as MMA fans learn about new fighters. Thats why the free TV model just works. It introduces fans to new fighters and helps build hype around them so that the UFC can eventually promote them on $60 PPV cards.

Also, not all of the fighters on these cards are relative unknowns. Saffiedine, Kawajiri, Max Holloway, DHK, John Hathaway, Hioki, Menjivar, Mitrione, Shawn Jordan, etc. Gus, Manuwa, Michael Johnson, Melvin Guillard and Gunnar Nelson are on the next Fight Pass card. I mean come on, these aren't unknowns that only the super-hardcore types that order obscure Asian MMA PPVs want to see fight.
