    Nobody wants to watch two lesbians as the main attraction of anything unless it's two girls one cup. And these aren't attractive lesbians, these are the Butch I hate men , wish I had Weiner type lesbians. Btw, if lesbians hate men so much, why do they wear prosthetic weiners during sex?

    This should have been obvious to me. Thanks for the clarification.

    I don't think Dana cares. He already got his $300M+ from the sale in addition to his eight-figure salary and everything else he had before. He can walk away in two years.

    I don't know why anyone would be shocked by that low of number.

    Fans get so much MMA right now for free and are much more educated they don't feel the need to spend the money on a lack luster PPV. They get there fix already. This isn't 2008 when we got only like 8 free events or whatever and the PPV's is where the real action was.

    I'm praying with the new TV and ESPN+ deal the PPV's are cut down massively.

    Yea, so that's 240/year. I would pay it, especially if there are also other things broadcasted.

    It was a fun card, but that's what they get for the way they've been booking cards. Especially international ones, no respect. If you dot believe me, check out 225, 226 and 227. Now check out 221 and 224, tell me they're the same thing.

    Less is more IMO. All these watered down cards just devalue the brand and excitement level

    No pretty sure it’s the $65 bucks and yeah for $65 bucks the card was weak. It’s crappy that so many fighters are turning down fights that’s the real reason the cards are watered down. Ufc needs to bite the bullet and pay the fighters more, then they might be less likely to turn down fights. McDonalds managers make more than a lot of fighters on the roster for Christ sakes.

    As a purist I can appreciate her skills, but she isn't a draw and the division is kiddie pool shallow

    You really think those numbers are for Cyborg/Holm? That was a Khabib card wasn't it?
