    [​IMG] Watching all of these guys discover that they need to subscribe to ESPN+ in order to get the PPV is kinda fun when you’ve had 6 months to get used to it.

    I actually tried Buffalo wild Wings on a recent Florida holiday, I felt the need to try it after years of reading about it on sherdog....

    5.8 out of 10 for me, Mrs wasn't pleased.

    I did not realize Sherdoggers were so frikkin' poor. Seriously, $5 a month???
    I am slowly really starting to realize most of you live with your parents and your allowance does not cover it.

    I live in the midwest (and not Chicago) so cost of living is pretty moderate. Our household income last year was about $450k (my wife made about 60% of it as she's a VP at a pretty big company and I'm just a salesman--I'm all about her smashing that glass ceiling LOL) and I stopped paying for ppv's after the ESPN deal. Just the principle, it was irritating. I used to buy every ppv, even the shitty ones that weren't worth it. Now if it's a huge card and I'm worried about the stream failing I'll go to a bar and drag some buddies along, but otherwise it's stream city.

    If the ESPN+ app functioned well that would be one thing. But it doesn't. And they also screwed over the people like me who paid for a year of fightpass mostly to get the early prelim fights, then see them moved to a different platform. So I signed up for ESPN+, they get that $ from me. But not buying ppv's anymore, nope.

    Yeah i dont fuck with streams dropping. Nothing like my drunk ass trying to find a backup mid main event.

    it’s not that much money and for me the app works great so it’s not a big deal.

    Yeah I have a smart tv. It’s slow when your browsing the different channels but once I’m in it, it never crashes unless I try to switch to a game or some other show while on commercials. If I just leave it I don’t have issues.

    It really is a shit fucking deal. Hate this ESPN partnership. I officially support illegal streaming.

    I have a smart TV too and the f'ing app constantly clocks, freezes up, etc. I've tried contacting support about it...what a waste of time. When it happens during the early prelims it's annoying but...it's the early prelims. So not such a huge deal. But paying $60 for a ppv to have it glitch? No thanks, I can have my stream lag for free LOL.

    This. The last ppv I streamed was Silva/Izzy. Just based on how terrible the card was I couldn't justify buying it. The stream cut out right before the main event and I was in panic mode trying to find another one. Fuck that, I'm not a broke college student anymore. I can afford to follow my favorite sport.
