    Milwaukee's UFC event will start way earlier than normal while there's a 7 hour time difference instead of the usual 6 hours with the ET area.

    Normally
    8pm ET Prelims (2am Europe)
    10pm ET Main Card (4am Europe)

    Milwaukee
    5pm ET Prelims (11pm Europe)
    8pm ET Main Card (2am Europe)

    The Milwaukee timing is much more Europe-friendly and I don't understand why this isn't the norm.

    Please enlighten me.

    Because it's a fox card, not a PPV, and they're all scheduled like this..

    PPV main cards begin at 10 EST. Fox main cards begin at 8 EST.

    .....No, it isn't. Fox events begin at 6 EST for the prelims and 8 for the main card.


    Prelims for PPV cards begin at 8 EST, while the PPV portions begin at 10.

    Not sure about FS1 cards.

    You're right, why are these Fight Nights not on the same timing?

    They gotta end at 10pm EST so the local news can come on. I like the earlier start times for these cards

    Please enlighten me as to why they would schedule a Milwaukee card right before Rothwell comes off suspension.
