    I remember there was like 2 hours left for the PPV when I bought the PPV for 201.
    What's the fastest main card ever?

    That Australian fight Night event that had like 11 of 12 fights have finishes has gotta be up there

    edit: shit that had commercials though, so that drags it out.

    Lol yeah I was happy I didn't watch the prelims since some of them got shown during the main card on whatever broadcast I was watching.

    Was disappointed in the main event. Mainly because I had hit 3 bowls for it and was anticipating another 5 round war :(

    Aren't commercials only for in-between rounds and in-between fights when there is nothing really going on?

    In terms of pure fight duration? Probably UFC 146, it was all heavyweight action and all finishes.

    True.
    Math time.

    Heavyweight Junior dos Santos (c) def. Frank Mir TKO (punches) 2 3:04
    Heavyweight Cain Velasquez def. Antônio Silva TKO (punches) 1 3:36
    Heavyweight Roy Nelson def. Dave Herman KO (punch) 1 0:51
    Heavyweight Stipe Miocic def. Shane del Rosario TKO (elbows) 2 3:14
    Heavyweight Stefan Struve def. Lavar Johnson Submission (armbar) 1 1:05


    1:05 + 5:00 + 3:14 + 0:51 + 3:36 + 5:00 + 3:04.

    6:05 + 3:55 + 8:36 + 3:04

    10:00 + 11:40

    22:40 minutes of fight.

    Faster than the average Dom Cruz fight lol.

    Yeah, but a lot of long PPVs have finishes in the first 3 fights, but decisions in the main or co main. It's the 25 minute fights that take up a lot of time.

    Are we talking fastest main card in terms of pure fight time or total broadcast time? If the former, then yes UFC 146 seems to be the fastest (if we're not including pre-zuffa, UFC 1-type events). I thought Fight Night: Rockhold vs Bisping I would be the quickest but all it's main card finishes ended in the 2nd round.

    What about UFC 103? Three first round finishes, including the main event (Franklin vs Belfort)
