But.. but guys Ronda is the biggest star the UFC has ever had! So it doesn't matter if any of us buy the card or not.

My thoughts on the card:

Ronda vs. McMann- Interesting fight. Definitely not interesting enough for me to pay $60. I would possibly watch at a bar or somewhere else if convenient

Cormier vs. Cummins- Biggest laugh of a fight in recent memory. Would love to see Cormier lose, but either he destroys Cummins or cruises to another snoozer dec. Either way I still don't give a shit and this fight isn't worth $5.

McDonald vs. Maia- Can't stand MacDonald period. Don't care enough to watch if he loses either. I like Maia, but as many have said this fight could be an absolute stinker. Hopefully Maia can get a sub but again, could care less about the outcome of this one.

Pyle vs. Walburger- 2 decent fighters. but is this worthy of a main card PPV?

Thompson vs. Whittaker- I like both of these guys, and this should be an exciting fight. I don't think either of these guys are ready for the big time yet and this fight would definitely not convince me to buy this ppv one way or another.

Eye vs. Davis- When this is one of the more interesting fights on the card, that's saying a lot.

The end

Good one.

Oh man, did not check my own topic, funny stuff :-D

Anyway, maybe I should clarify. In my post I never said it's PPV-worthy, I was just commenting on the fact that it might be a great card, it has potential of some great fights but people are already dismissing it.
I just can't comment on the PPV-price because I'm from a country with no option of watching the UFC whatsoever besides, you know



I have never paid for a UFC-event ever, I do buy the DVD's afterwards sometimes (those are available if you know where to look).

So this was not a "wow, I would love to pay for this event!" This was more about the event maybe having a lot of exciting fights.

I can understand people being pissed off about the price, but that wasn't my point.

As for being a zuffa shill, :-D, man, I would love that job to be honest, I have always enjoyed the UFC more that any other organisation (yes, including Pride, yes I have watched every pride event there has been.)

again tl;dr don't care about price, just saying card can finally feature lots of finishes, something that has been lacking somewhat recently.
