My biggest beef is that I travel a ton for work and end up stuck on the road for a lot of free events. While have FS1 and FS at home, hardly any hotels do while virtually all of them have SpikeTV. I wish the UFC had never left Spike.

I'm with you in this one.

Tonight's card pretty good. I can tell because my gf fell asleep in the cO main event...I'm sure she will wake up for the main, Bendo is her favorite fighter.

Man, almost on que. Great KO on an already good FREE event (apart from the amateur slug-off). Feel bad for Pyle on that one.

Not sure what TS can complain about. Maybe try WWE? They have big stars on all events I believe.

I have been saying this for years. Who the fuck is Hendricks, Pettis, Dillashaw etc.? Nobody knows who most of the champions are and still think Chuck Liddell and Brock Lesnar are the champs. The two cards tonight have actually been pretty good, which I believe is largely due to the fact that it was mainly focused on lower weight classes and not 185 & 205.

So you're saying a guy that sunk in 50 million before turning a profit shouldn't be allowed to make money off a product when its successful?

I just went to an Iowa Challenge card last night was $30 bucks for Amateur fights

But hey, Zuffa is the evil MMA promoter that goes so much farther at penny pinching compared to the rest, right?

Macao card was meh, although the Main and Co Main event were good

Tulsa event had Finishes all over the place and a Omoplata.
TS is clearly rustled if he thinks a show that includes 9 finishes and a FREAKING Omoplata is a subpar show.
