    I don't think Jacare even cares...

    He just wants that title shot & belt...

    I am triggered by this but am obviously gonna watch its not a bad card. imho

    I just wonder if they will do this every time a fight falls apart i think they should have just rolled with it because it certainly won't be the first time this happens.

    Wow lol

    UFC doesn't give a fuck about casual fans anymore....the once coveted audience is now shit on.

    Unless you buy ESPN + you really dont get to watch UFC at all especially with the already limited amount of UFC on ESPN fights and now they are getting rid of another televised card.

    A fighter pulls out, so they turn it into a $5 PPV instead?

    Well it's a dumb idea

    Literally none of my casual buddy's are remotely interested in buying espn+.....actually no one I know has it or wants it.


    Honestly I think this whole espn+ Ppv shit is dumb

    I guess ESPN decided they’d rather air the National Air Hockey semi-finals instead of that main event. Is this the future of combat sports that Dana was going to walk us through? ESPN is just sooo good at what they do.

    That is the mistake they are making here. imo

    They can't just focus on one fight they have to try to build hype for the other fights on the card too.


    Could be because Hardy is co main and they don't want to deal with the drama of his past. I still don't understand why they are giving him such a big push it is # 1 bullshit.

    So we the fans win and the fighters probably get a lot more people watching their fights? Sounds good for everyone.

    Only in the US, American fans get fucked over and over its so wrong. Fightpass is still the same as before just not in the US.
