    So i live in Stockholm, actually i live just 20 min away from tele2 arena. I have never been to a live UFC card before but i really want to go to this next FOX card because of obvious reasons.

    Here's the thing, almost none of my friends are fight fans and they are broke anyway. I know some fans but we never hang out or anything so it would be pretty weird to "ask them out".

    Is it worth it to go alone? It sounds Kinda pathetic, but i want to go so bad. Any advice?

    None of my friends or girlfriend are MMA fans. I've been to about 9 solo. Always have a great time. But, I'm kind of an MMA snob and would rather not drag casuals to a show and have them annoy me when the fight hits the ground. You can also make friends with those sitting near you. Most people will be drunk by the end of the prelims. Go and enjoy.

    Don't pass up a chance to go just because your friends are broke. Make friends there if you want. When I went it was supposed to be four of us but one decided he didn't want to spend money and another got checked by his wife. So I ended up going with one other person, I thought about not even going but then figured I would end up kicking myself in the ass later.

    I have gone to plenty of combat sporting events alone. Not all of my friends want to spend 300+ on seats every month or two. I like being a drunken yelling slob which I can't always do with friends/gf present.

    I've been to Disneyland alone once...to a concert alone once (both times my exes upset me and I left without them)...sounds pathetic, but I actually had one of the best times of my life at both places!

    You may make some friends! Have a blast!

    It's going to be loud and crazy nobody will care except you. Go have fun and tell yourself all about it on the way home.

    Under no circumstances go anywhere alone. You will merely signal your social undesirability.

    no one remembers who the just bleed guy was with, or who the drunken shadow boxing guy's friend was, or whether the creepy 'i must touch shogun' lady was with anyone or not.... get drunk, watch the fights and do something embarrassing every time you see the camera pan by the audience

    the time is now

    dont rely on others to hold your hand while you do the things you want to do in life, just get on it. if you dont go to this you will look back the rest of your life and think about what a pussy you were for not going.

    if you need to justify it to yourself, imagine you were going to go with your friend but he cancelled on you. would you just burn your ticket or would you go by yourself?

    just go.

    Any grown ass man should be able to spend time alone without feeling insecure. Just go man. If you're an MMA fan, you'll have a good time. The kind of crowd who would judge you are the same people who consciously surround themselves with assholes just to feel like they belong to some sort of scene.
