    Just went to ESPN plus to check and it is $65 for the event tomorrow night. Plus tax of course LOL. I was hoping it was just for the Conor McGregor fight because they want to screw the customer over when he fights. Nope. I mean I order just about every single event anyway. But another price increase is not called for.

    It’s up to the consumer. I don’t tell other people how to spend their money. I personally don’t think most ppv are worth the price.

    Just a heads up, it was ESPN who increased the price, not the UFC.

    It's a shitty move but they know ppl who are buying now will likely keep buying.
    I used to roll my eyes when everyone cried about cards that they never buy anyway, but now?
    I don't blame anyone who streams for free

    MMA is the most expensive sport in the world.

    Meh. Won’t make a big difference for me. I generally only buy 3-4 cards to year that have enough compelling fights. Last card I bought was Usman/Colby

    I think ESPN was desperate for subscribers for ESPN+, they didn’t think about the long term effects of increasing the PPV rates.

    The less people purchase their PPV’s, the more the UFC & ESPN will rethink their strategy once they lose enough money.

    I support the product. By the way if the card sucks tomorrow night I hope you don’t come here to bitch and moan about it. I mean you stole it.

    Man you must be rich af or have some disposable income..

    I used to get most of them when they were 53$ on the PlayStation network. Now they’re fucking us over on the reg and thinking we’ll take it lying down. I’m voting with my wallet against this shit tho.
