    The live events are usually really early for US MMA fans so watching the free replay later that night is nice and since the free replay is not streaming, theres no worries of buffering and skipping.

    Sorry for the rant, just need to remind myself of the good reasons i refuse to sign up for something that should be free of face book or on fs1/2.

    Hold on, do they replay the events that were on TV? If so, I might be able to see this FS 1 show after all...

    That is kind of how I am. Since the fight is over I dont have that sense of suspense. Even if I dont know the outcome of the fight. I tend to skip through recorded fights looking for submission attempts or rocked fighters.

    Im ok with it as long as i dont know who won. But i am the same way if i know who won i dont care to watch it. Just some food for thought....if you dvr an event live and pause to go to the bathroom or whatever, your not watching live no more........

    You think the UFC should provide their content for free? Seriously?

    That aside, almost everything is good about fightpass if you are an avid fight fan. I know 3 people personally who have it and we all think it is a steal and great overall. I couldn't have been happier with it. They delivered exactly what I want and at a reasonable cost. Unfortunately, a lot of people have weird ideas about how everything should be free but fighters should get paid more, etc. etc. The only legit argument against it I've heard so far is that it is expensive in general to be a fight fan, which is true. However, it appears to be a transition phase and I'm not a deadbeat so I don't have to steal things just because I can.

    It certainly isn't for everyone but that is how life works.

    I just feel that if i have to pay an extra $30/month to get fs1/fs2 then fight pass should be included. I was already paying $80/month just for basic cable that did not include fs1/fs2. That additional $10/month was my breaking point just on principle regardless if i can or can not afford it.

    No, you have to wait 90 days until the ppv is released. I assume he is talking about the fight pass events that are instantly posted for replay.

    I miss a lot of events due to work on Saturdays so if I want to watch an event I have to call in sick.
