    And the UFC continues to play hardball with Fight Pass throwing high level fights as the feature prelim, looking to convince more people to subscribe.

    It's almost as if they are trying to make money or something.

    Na definitely not. I've had Fight Pass since it came out, and I'm glad they've begun to do this. Helps me feel like I'm getting my money's worth lol. But the product has gotten so much better with recent updates.

    inb4 people whine about their placement. Yes, they are the caliber of fighters that could be on the main card. But they are getting paid the same regardless.

    Eric Winter is not fucking around.

    PPV days are numbered imo

    Larkin will win. He had pretty good TDD at MW, and it's even better at WW. I don't think it's a debate as far as who has the edge standing.

    I already have fight pass, I think this move is lame because what if I don't have 6 hours to watch fights that night but still want to see the best fighters? That's why the best guys are supposed to be at the top of the card.

    Agreed. I've climbed in bed and watched - it ran well on iOS.

    Probably means Pennington/Phillips is on the PPV now and either Means/Strickland or Garbrandt/Mizugaki headlines the Prelims. Highly doubt they would headline Prelims with the Pennington fight.

    Agree. The mobile app used to be like 3 out of 10. A solid 9 now.
