What is the point of 2 events in one night?

We have another one of these coming up soon, can anyone explain to me what the point is of this gimmick, besides feeding the fans watered down product to the point that they are fed up and don't even want to watch any more?

isn't that the expanded schedule thing?

it's not a gimmick, it's common in boxing to reach a wider audience...

Like others have said, you are not that important.

It's ok TS, you just sit back and be quiet while the rest of the fans watch them. Two events in one day sounds awesome to me

they're holding more events in more countries. most places are going to be saturday night shows, so there's bound to be some that overlap.

They get two live gates instead of one with the same product offering. Now u know

When GSP stepped away he was ranked in the top 10 all time for knockdowns landed and submission attempts, while simultaneously having the most strikes, significant strikes, takedowns and guard passes
