    I like the big screen concept


    but for an event with GSP and Rashad heading up the card, they'd better be charging 15 cents and providing pillows.

    I didn't even read half of it.

    Still interesting to see them try it again, I wonder how it will sell.
    Also Rory "The Canadian Psycho" McDonald should be official.

    I would love to watch this on a huge theatre screen and not on my 27" monitor.

  15. $16 is a lot cheaper than buying a PPV for those who don't watch with a group of friends or go to a bar.

    Must be nice to see on the big screen. I've never tried it.

    At least it's another option for those who stream because PPV is too much money. Especially for kids that can't get into bars yet.

    Las Vegas means big bucks for the UFC.

    Also considering it being the week before Thanksgiving it may draw in a lot of people from all over the country.

    I'd go to one at 3am or so if it was done in the UK, even though I got the channel that shows all of the PPVs, it'd be pretty cool watching it on a big screen like that.
     
  19. I think he was talking about showing the fights in movie theaters. The link shows the fight will be available in over 350 theaters across the U.S. and he was hoping they could offer the same in Canada.
