    I just checked at ufc.com to see which bars in my area (Portlandia) are showing it, and none have confirmed. WTF? There's less than a month until the event.

    Could the UFC be charging a monumental sum? I hope not, this is the fight I have wanted for a long time and I need to watch in a bar filled with drunks like me.

    Believe it or not, this is one fight my friends will actually come over to watch. Probably have some drinks and food. It's been a whiiiiile. Last time they came over was for GSP vs. Bisping. Before that? I couldn't even tell you.

    Ahhh. Reminds me of the Golden years (2009-2012) of MMA when my friends actually gave a fuck about the fights and it wasn't just me and my two brothers watching the fights.

    It died for me when Club 21 closed and was subsequently torn down. Best dive bar EVAH.

    No but I did prefer having an assortment of bars to watch it at, the last few years it has reduced greatly and now I can't even find a single one.

    Yep, all my friends fell off too. Use to watch the fights and play poker after.
    My brother doesn’t even follow anymore but pretty sure everyone will be back for this one.

    GSP/Bisping was a great fight. More than lived up to the hype IMHO.

    Chael Sonnen still lives there and he's the last thing keeping it alive.

    When Chael moves on the city will become Detroit 2.0

    My girlfriend ran into him a few months ago at an x-ray clinic. He was driving a badass truck and took time to talk with everyone who recognized him.; he just asked to sign-in first lol. In fact she snapped a pic of him on her phone while he was doing the clipboard thing, but I'm not supposed to post it.
