    This is the case for us Europeans.

    Would you stay up?

    Or stay of social media and watch the next day?

    The same thing I usually do, pirate it because only a few of the fights are interesting.

    I’m retired so it doesn’t matter much. But, if I had a job, I’d stay off the internet, until I watched the fights at a normal hour.

    It's pretty easy to stay off social media since I don't use it.

    Same thing I do with certain bellator cards and ufc cards, go to bed early and watch and drink in the morning like a degenerate.

    I woke up around 4.am , so no real problem for me.

    Cereals instead of beers kinda sucks tho.

    (I would probably have beers anyway...)

    Are the results different if I watch it a later time? What's the benefit of getting up early if you can literally watch the same thing whenever?

    That's true I guess. But It doesn't send an auto/instant feed to my phone or computer. If someone can't stay off sherdog for a few hours in order to watch a taped event, they have weak self-control.

    NOT EVERY CARD.

    "Sherdog's live UFC Fight Night 122 coverage kicks off live Saturday at 3:45 a.m. ET from the Mercedes-Benz Arena in Shanghai, China."

    I miss those days, like when they made that messed up mixed rules/mixed gloves KB vs MMA fight between Jienotsu and Aoki, and Jienotsu won by flying knee knockout in the MMA portion when Aoki tried to spam takedowns.

    And the pink wig.

    As a European I can say from my and my friends experience there are mainly 2 options:

    - Party weekend - just leave the club early. Everybody's anyway on Molly or coco so sleeping is not a problem
    - Non-party weekend - wake up or record it on pvr and watch it before you go online. There is no PPV in Europe so it's normally on tv
