    I normally stay up all night for the big PPVs and a huge fight like Conor/Khabib is no different. However , early signs point towards a very top-heavy card with sub-par fights filling up the rest. The reasons for this are that the co-main wont affect PPV buys in a significant way with McGregor on top. Some also say Conor doesnt share PPV percentages. But regardless of what the reasons are i just can't see myself sitting up till 6AM ( US time ) for one single fight - even if it is Conor/Khabib.

    How do you feel about this ?

    What? CONOR always gets champs in his co-mainevent...is normal.


    But yes stay up for just 1 fight and do something else.....Most ufc undercards are crap anyways.

    This is one of the rare times the time difference between Australia and the US comes in handy.

    The main card for PPV's start at midday on Sunday. Fantastic timing for us!

    I feel that I am going to use torrent site when I wake up in the morning.
    Before that, I will put my phone to airplane mode so I dont excidently see the result while taking first morning dump.

    I usually set up the timer at 4:00 AM when there is a good PPV.
    Honestly in this case I really don't care of the rest of the card, I'd woke up at 6am just to watch Khabib vs Conor, and pay the PPV of course (if I dont find any other way to watch it).

    PPV points are only for champions and McG, that's no excuse not to not stack the card. They are probably still working on the better match ups for the main card and the ones already known are mainly undercard fights. At least I hope so, lol. Any fighter wants to be on a McG card just for the exposure it gets them.

    Sure, but early signs point towards a crap card all the way up to the co-main

    I'll watch it live, but I will skip all the WMMA.
    Gotta see Khabib vs Mcgregor live.

    First card in years that I'll be watching out at a bar / casino rather than at my place with friends.

    Don't really believe in sleeping until the main event or skipping parts. It's an event not just one fight.

    I'll be just back from a month in the US so i'll still probably be on US time so it should be easier than usual.

    I'll be saying up.

    I'll probably get up 4am, watch the main card live then catch the rest later.

    I'll download it Sunday morning and watch it over breakfast. I used to regularly stay up until 6am to watch UFC but age/sense has gotten the better of me.

    This is correct.

    After falling asleep during a particularly dull fight then waking up to see the result of a main event for the second time, I gave up trying to watch them live.

    I wish there were PPVs in CET time as the feeling of watching something live is a bit different, all we get in Europe is crappy Fight Night cards with perhaps 1 (if we're lucky) decent fight. No way that I'm staying up until early in the morning to watch something live, don't have a big issue with watching it in the morning after. Would be nice though to be able to go to a sports bar to watch a major event.
