    Two big PPVs in two weeks.
    Not sure which one to buy.
    Let's compare cards:

    November 21
    UFC 255 -- $64.99 on ESPN+
    Figueiredo vs. Perez
    Shevchenko vs. Maia
    Perry vs. Means
    Chookagian vs. Calvillo
    Shogun Rua vs. Craig

    November 28
    Tyson vs. Jones -- $49.99 on Triller
    Mike Tyson vs. Roy Jones Jr.
    Jake Paul vs. Nate Robinson
    Badou Jack vs. Blake McKernan
    Viddal Riley vs. Rashad Coulter

    Which one is a better card vs. which one is a better value? Or is it the same answer.

    You do know Tyson/Jones is like a 3 round exhibition right? Two 50+ yr old men will just dance around the ring lightly sparring for 5 mins and will mostly gas in the first min.

    $50 for that?

    I believe Tyson tried to have exhibition fight tour after he retired and only had 1 fight which didn’t get a good reception. This was also 2006 or 07. The referee in their fight is also told to stop the fight at any point if gets too competitive.

    i don’t think the ufc card is worth it but since when is watching what will mostly likely be a friendly sparring session be worth 50 bucks?

    Maybe if it was 10-15 years ago I'd say Tyson/Jones, but not now. They're too old.

    I am very curious how the Tyson - Jones fight does financially.

    I would not watch it for free

    If Tyson vs Jones Jr. does more than 5000 buys I will be surprised.

    If the UFC PPV was priced at around $20 for that piss poor card then maybe it’d be worth it, but for sure old man Tyson vs anyone.

    I would not go to a sports bar this year. I would not go to any bar.

    I do occasionally like watching fights at sports bars, but with the pandemic, there's no way I want to be around that many people. And watching fights at home on the couch is pretty comfortable.
