    Is Chicago known as a bad city? I thought it was great. Gino's East deep dish pizza, great art. Everything closes to damn early though.

    Well yes and no.

    I went to watch a boxing world title once in crappy seats a long way back but when the main event was over there was still one more fight to go and everyone left so we jumped down from the balcony and went to the 2nd row and watched it from there and that was a pretty good view.

    But 2nd row tickets for a main event aren't really available or a realistic option.

    Live UFC events are shit. The fans are retards, you have to navigate through said retards just to take a piss or get a beer, the time between fights drags on and unless you're close to the cage, the view is trash and you spend most of the time watching the big screen.

    Home is 10,000x better. You have your own couch. Your own beer. And when the WMMA fight comes on, you can switch to porn.

    Boxing and MMA are different though. In MMA if you're second row, there's moments where if the fight hits the ground you can't see. You're also constantly looking through chainlink and might have a cameraman in front of you. At home you're at least 'in' the cage.

    Boxing or Professional Wrestling live views are awesome. MMA not so much, but I still attend at least one a year.

    With all the injuries nowadays, I'd never buy tickets for a live event to be honest. Just not worth the risk of the card falling apart beforehand.

    If you don’t get the tics and go you’ll be kicking urself in the arse later, besides it being an uncommonly staked card even for a PPV.

    I would never pay view a huge
    Screen. Go to the workouts ect. and just buy or stream the card.

    I'm of the opinion that the smaller cards with cheaper tickets are the most worth it to go to live. Just for the experience. And you're more invested in each fight because you're there.

    If I'm watching a stacked card I want to be sitting on the couch in front of a big screen TV seeing everything in HD.

    The experience is awesome. But to shell out $350 a ticket, I would need a better card AND the awesome experience

    Chicago is cool. Great food but something about it I just don't care for. Maybe it's just he size or traffic or what not but I never look forward to going there. I go every year cause my brother lives there though

    I've only been there for three days and didn't do any driving outside of arriving and leaving, so maybe a different experience. I liked it though.

    You never know what the card really will be until fight week is over lol card is probably gonna suspiciously end up being Covington vs RDA main event with Reem vs Blaydes co main. Don't get your hopes up if you buy tickets that's for damn sure, been a bad year for mma.

    Watching MMA live is just a different experience. You feel the impact of the fight a lot more. It's a lot more brutal in real life.

    I'd definitely go if I was you. You have the money, it's a great card, it's your town so you don't have to book plane tickets and so on. We've never had an event here so I've had to fly to the UK and Sweden a few times. Just go dude! The atmosphere is awesome most of the time, and it's an experience you'll remember no matter if it's mediocre or amazing.

    Btw, I always try to get seats where you are. That's the best place. Close enough to see, but far enough up so your sight is not obscured and you dont have to look up (less so to look at the screens as well).
