    They were counting on Rousey winning. People would tune in to see Holm fight, plus I think Rousey planned on calling out the winner. Now that Rousey is no longer relevant this card is going to flop.

    I think it's ok... but not worth 50 bucks or whatever some of you are paying for it.

    Me.. i have no right to complain.

    While that makes sense, I don't see how that makes up for this card being an absolute dud. Looks like an FS1 card

    Fight is gonna bomb on ppv. UFC is banking on the fact that Holly beat Ronda and did a big number on fox. Big difference between drawing on network tv and drawing on ppv. It will flop big time.

    I buy almost every ppv but this is the first one in a long while that I won't even contemplate buying.

    Some exciting match ups, just not a lot of huge names.

    Will be cool if Cannonier can somehow win, would be nice to have a new name in the LHW top 10

    All they care about is if people will buy it. There's around 125k hardcore fans that will buy every card no matter how bad it is, most casuals tune in for the main event. They could stack the hell out of this card but it would still flop with Holm vs Randamie as the main event. Sucks for hardcore fans but all the UFC cares about is how many people will tune in. Especially now that the new owners need to pay off their debt.

    So we're going to have 2 PPV in a row headlining women ?
    And the rest of the card blows also.

    Absolutely unacceptable. I've been buying PPV for many years. I'll even buy them alone if I can't get anyone to watch.
    Never once streamed illegally or anything like that. Don't even know how to.
    But at this point I'm gonna have to look into learning how to do it illegally.

    I will not pay $69 for this garbage ass WMMA anymore. I'm done.

    I'm tired of this crap being forced on me through main card events.
    Put them on the Prelims but never main card and certainly not headlining. That is a frigging rip off.

    Let's have an all WMMA card and see just how PPV worthy they really are.
    I say an all WMMA card does less than 200,000 buys.

    If you have a smart tv can you stream directly to your TV ?
