Sounds reasonable.

I wish more people would stop complaining about fighter pay and instead considered actually supporting them.

It doesn't have to be PPV purchase, it could be T Shirts or other merchandise, but anything beats complaining on the internet.

maybe they can discount the PPV but asking for the PPV free of charge is a bit too much.

Because so much of entertainment is in fact available for free these days.

Streaming pay per views, downloading movies and music, all for free.

People assume they shouldn't have to pay for anything and insist a business model that requires any payment is broken.

The WWE guy had me cracking up. If he's a WWE employee, then talk about pouncing on a wounded prey.

because we work hard for our money and would rather not spend $60 on a shitty card, especially when there are plenty of FREE cards that are 10x better.

I'll go through each point again.
The woman being better looking in WWe? Undisputed FACT.

Guys being tougher?
When considering the schedule, travel, no off season or time off between fights, frequently fighting with injuries. I can't really see how this can be argued, pro wrestling is tougher on the body.

Better athletes?
Notice I didn't say better fighters, I said athletes. The wwe guys have to do it all, grapple, do throws and know how to fall, Cardio, strength to support each other, stunt work and big bumps, looking ripped, be able to think and call the match not just go on instinct. Obviously this one can be debated but I'd bet in fitness tests the wwe roster smokes the ufc roster.

The network being a better deal then Fightpass?
This is obvious, The network gets you every ppv and the entire library for only 9.99. What's fight pass cost again? Oh and you pay extra for ppv too? Lol give me a break.

Look, this is the ufc discussion and I'm not trying to derail the thread, I just noticed many people are upset about the weak cards and wanted to offer a constructive solution. I was upset and made the switch others could do the same. But we are all free to do as we chose. You want to buy this card and the next one after that, keep on doing it. No sweat off my back.
0/10

Bad troll attempt. You are transparent.
