    This probably makes McGregor/Khabib II even more likely.

    That means they won't be ppv in America.

    I don't get it.

    Edit: i ain't paying for that shit at 4 in the morning.

    Khabib will either fight Tony or price himself out of the rematch. He's not like the rest of the financially unstable roster. He'll be happy to retire at this point.

    Plenty of other match ups for Mac though.

    So either theyll be mcgoober fighting in the uk for ppv? Or we will get shafted and have to pay for a fight at 4 am?

    If they try charging what they are for Americans this is dead before it's started.

    We get the fights at a good time zone but we also get shafted with the ppv costs. US and Canada are carrying the UFC.

    Good luck getting people used to seeing fights on cable to pay crazy PPV prices at absurd times of night

    i don't even stay up to watch UFC's free European cards when they're on, forget about staying up AND paying.

    Fake news

    There's reports that some numbers events will be made available on sky and itv box office for people who aren't subscribers to eleven sports who broadcast the ufc.

    There's nothing officially from eleven that mcgreogor events will be ppv only

    Meltzers contacts are us cable companies. He knows fuck all about UK tv

    AJ fights at about 10pm local time and everyone here knows who he is, MMA is nowhere near as big as boxing and good luck getting people to pay for something that happens at 5am

    Your quote lacks basic understanding.

    You think 700k people are going to buy a Conor ppv at 4 in the morning?

    I'm not sure this is right anyway.
    Since BT Sport got the UFC from Sky in 2013 none of the UFC events have been PPVs.
    Eleven Sports outbid BT Sports for the rights but from what I've read they're doing it the same way as BT and it's a flat fee for everything.
