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...

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.

GSP defeated 2 1/2 times as many victims ranked in the top 5 at the time of the fight compared to Fedor...
