    Per Dan Rafael.

    The rest of the card is moved to Showtime, but might be dropped entirely.

    I wonder if PBC gets a refund from CBS lol. This fight got snuffed twice by UFC

    Why do you only post about PBC?

    No one else seems to care as much as you.

    Thurman-Porter will be moved to NBC more likely with Spence-Algieri

    No point of CBS showing the card without the main event

    Thats like asking an MMA forum why they only post about the UFC.

    PBC is boxing's equivalent of UFC

    Depends where you are. Outside of a handful of fighters HBO/Showtime is showing (not very many spread across many weight classes) this year it's the only thing outside of that. HBO has cut their budget so much but Showtime is likely to increase shows like thereby years ago. Everything else is via Internet stream for Americans.

    In 2015 there were many pbc cards and HBO/Showtime were not doing much. Now HBO/Showtime are still not doing much (especially HBO) and PBC has run out of investor money to give to Al Haymon in 9 monthes. So the landscape has changed.

    None of that equates to being "the equivalent" of UFC.

    It isn't the equivalent but without it there isn't much. Very few champions being featured in very few weight classes. And all other fighters don't matter. I mean, Bellator could make a handful of fights people care about. HBO/Showtime are doing less than ever. PBC kicked paid boxing off cable TV.

    Mayweather, Canelo, Pacquiao, Bradley, Cotto, Klitschko, Fury, Crawford, Rigondeaux, Lomanchenko, Ward, GGG, Hopkins, R.Gonzales, Adonis, Kovalev...
    All the best p4p fighters/ biggest draws in the sport. None of them on PBC.
    Compare those names with
    Garcia, Thurman, Porter, Quillin, Jacobs, Santa Cruz, Wilder(Showtime recently), Figureoa, Robert Guerrero, Aron Martinez, Broner.

    Really no comparison.

    It was scheduled for the December NBC card but Conor fought Aldo that day, so they pulled out and put Omar Fig vs Demarco.

    Then they scheduled MGM Grand for March 5 but Conor was scheduled that day, so the MGM gave the night to UFC and Thurman/Porter was pushed back to Mohegan Sun a week later.

    Conor snubbed this fight twice. PBC is too scared to compete with the UFC

    Im pretty sure none of that ever happened.
    Thurman got hurt so the cards off and you credited that to the UFC.
