6 figures in dollars would mean 10000 subscribers. Which is ridiculously low, especially since he said they are getting around 6000 new subscribers per TUF episode.

Yeah, unless you happen to live in Europe. The UFC recently raised the price for Fight Pass in various European countries from 10 USD to 16 Euros, which more than doubles the cost (16 ~= 22$). The worst part? They didn't even notify the subscribers at all and tried to sneak that shit in.

The UFC got a decent amount of nasty feedback for that particular stunt and quickly reverted the price back to 8 Euros IIRC.

You could say I was a potential subscriber until that happened. Now? No fucking way.

I am not a Fight Pass subscriber and likely never will be.

But from a business POV, it is a shame we can't get reliable numbers.

I have thought that it was a poorly thought out strategy from Day 1. Curious how it is actually doing

I interpreted Dana's body language in the scrum to mean he rounded up so he could say it was 100k subscribers.

Not the worst thing in the world, as long as they're making up the cost of keeping the servers up that's a profit

What else can you do with that fight library?

but putting cards on fight pass instead of tv is probably losing them money (not sure how the fox deal works though)
