    Knowing that UFC is asking $450 Million for TV rights the only
    ways they may see that kind of money is Offering the PPV card
    fighters on all fight cards as well as offering title defenses on all
    of the cards that are not PPV and when they do fight night cards
    offer cards that feature star power instead of the model they go by
    now which is random booked cards with one or two major fighters
    on the prelims or lid lifters on the main cards.

    You always ask for more than what you will actually settle for

    So you don't ask for a small amount and hope that they give a much bigger offer out of kindness?

    half of the tv cards are better than the PPV's already.

    Dear Sherdog Marketing/Accounting majors -

    Please help the UFC make as much money as possible so they can pay off their $4billion purchase.

    Thanks,

    All of us seriously concerned Sherdoggers who care about the financial concerns of others and not ourselves.

    Any reason you're typing in one of corner of the screen?

    1. You're a greeter at Sam's. You don't know shit about shit.
    2. You can't offer a title defense "on all cards that are not PPV" when there are eight weight classes and 30 cards a year. lol
    3. You can't put your "star power" on every card. That's not how you build up new fighters and your existing stars will have shorter careers from injuries/exhaustion.
    4. Again, you don't know shit about shit. Including how to type across an entire screen.

    All the established so called "PPV draws" should be on the TV shows, and the guys who can manage 200K to 500K PPVs should be on the PPV cards.

    For example, Conor should fight on a TV show, and fights like Khabib vs Ferguson/Barbosa and etc should be on PPV.

    Get used to paying at least $5 more on your monthly cable bill.

    I'd make it an old school pro wrestling style/type show with a mix of fighters cutting promos, live interviews, some no name live fights, a classic fight from the past, and one good fight live as the main event.

    Granted, but I wonder how much "more" we are talking about in this instance.
    It sounds like it could be close to twice as much (450 vs 225), which would be kind of funny.

    I'm really, really, curious to discover what the new tv-deal amount will be.
