    $70 on certain providers like fios and spectrum.

    My friend who is a hardcore fan now picks and chooses more carefully which cards to buy. He hasn't bought one in around 6 months.

    I disagree. Maybe for some but not all. I have a buddy that buys way less ppvs than a year ago. He is their key demo. It doesn't help he has spectrum and they charge an exymtra $5. $70 for hd.

    I disagree with your disagreement then, good sir! If this were the case, we'd see a serious degredation in the bottom line. Maybe the faces and names change but a 120K people minimum still buy PPVs that might not be PPVs in another market or time.

    Put it this way; the UFC upped their PPV pricing in 2014 and people still went out and paid an increased price for Mighty Mouse PPVs that year. 125K people bought Joe Soto vs TJ Dillashaw on like 24 hours notice. You could argue that an extra 5 bucks is a bridge too far for some but I'm of the belief that the years of empirical evidence speaks volumes about there being a bottom line business regarding PPV numbers.

    I feel not all cards should be priced equal. An event with a big fight feel like 200, 202, 205, 207, 214, 217 they can get away with a higher price but cards like 201, 208, 209, 212, 215, and 216 shouldn't cost any more than 30 bucks.

    Kenny here,

    I just asked my mom's friend who is over right now. He is a rich business guy. He told me that they raised prices because people who buy PPVs will buy even though it is $5 more, but people who don't buy PPVs will not buy regardless of price. He called them freeloaders and he said they will stream online. I'm not sure what that means but he is smart and rich so I will believe him. lol.

    The cards have been crap lately so they should be worth less.

    The UFC PPV's are way over-priced, its too expensive when they have PPV's so often. 13 PPV's last year and it was $60 for each of them, its way too much money. If they did less PPV's then it will be ok. Or they charged much less.

    I really don't mind paying for a PPV if I feel its very good quality and worth it. But these days the cards are just not good enough for the price and its not worth it.

    $65 might not seem a lot, but when you have a PPV so often it adds up to a lot.

    PPV is a ridiculously outdated model and should be moved away from in this day and age. It's 2018.

    They'll never lower the price because this isn't about the fighters it's about the ufc. Fertitta even said thatt

    Lowering the price would be an admission that their product is weak. They trick the casuals by pure hype, so weak cards or not they will continue to claim otherwise since it appears to work on their uninformed audience.

    If they were @25$ I would buy every one of them

    @65 I'll probably buy one or two of they're really good

    Pretty funny that regular HD is still 10 bucks extra for one show. At least they don't charge extra for Color.
