    Judging by 220 and what i see for 222, it's going to be a turd year for PPV's.

    Title fights and then crappy cards.

    Are they going to put better fights on Fox cards to try and get a better tv deal?

    I'm scared too

    This last pay-per-view was far-and-away not worth 60 bucks

    I predict a shitty year in which, by the end of it, Dana White will go full Dana White and say "the year was fucking awesome and you're all fucking goofs".

    You can call me Mystic Bach, because I predict deez tings.

    221 looks crap but will be a banger, 223 will be a monster card. Mark my words

    Agree. The UFC is putting more ‘names’ on free TV cards in a bid to spike ratings and get a better TV deal. The fans who buy PPVs can go fuck themselves in WME’s mind!

    I’d buy 223 for the main event alone

    You must be part owner of Zuffa since you are worried about PPV buys

    Better names like Josh Emmett?
    Or that ratings draw Eryck Anders?

    The UFC needs Mayweather vs McGregor 2. The only blockbuster fight there is to make is McGregor vs Diaz 3.

    If Conor's plan is to return in September, that means he may only fight once this year. So, that is 1 - 1.5M PPV. Not enough to make up for a year that looks like it is going to suck big time (in terms of PPV numbers).

    The UFC needs 3 more mainstream superstars ASAP.
