    For example I just had my class reunion last Saturday and had to miss the DC Stipe card. I also live in Northern Michigan where the summers are pristine, but very very short. There seems to be other things going on whether it's camping, weddings, or just old friends in town to dedicate a Sat. night to watch the fights.

    I use to play out in a bar band most Saturday's too and I had to miss a lot of good cards. I know how to get a hold of the replays, but (like all sports) it's just not the same as watching them live. If I had my way they would be on early Saturday afternoon, mid-week, or Sunday's (except during football season).

    The biggest thing that holds me back from watching is my girlfriend. I legitimately watch like 5 times as much when I'm single

    I rarely stay up late, even on weekends, so I have to make exceptions for PPV cards which sucks. That’s why I like watching PPV when I am traveling abroad and the event is early on Sunday morning. Even when I’m home I will sometimes wait until the Sunday morning to watch the PPV. I just have to stay off the internet until I see the fights to avoid spoilers.

    Being that snow is for hillbillies and class reunions are for rubes, we catch all the fights in California.

    As a European, I watch everything delayed thanks to timezones. But when I worked in the US, I could watch the cards live and it didn't change anything. You just have to keep out of social media and you won't get spoiled.

    I'm in Australia so summer's actually easier. They're on Sunday 2pm summer, noon in winter. It's much easier to drag my hungover arse to the pub 2 hrs later in the summer than a wintery morning.

    I went to Wildwood NJ last Saturday for a day at the beach and boardwalk.

    Then watched the UFC at a sportsbar nearby

    Wasn't any issue for me.

    Getting head while watching a UFC ppv is kind of awkward.

    I try to but a lot of times I miss the main even because I'm too drunk by then. They need to at least start the card at 9PM preferably 8PM
