    I'm curious about this, I know there's a lot of rich people out there for who $60 bucks is like 60 cents, but I'm talking about the average working class Joe.

    I mean, there's internet now... isn't buying a PPV kinda like buying a porno dvd these days... paying for something that's widely available for free??

    I do, but its through combate chanel, which is about the same as a fight pass subscription and you get every event.
    But I bet im in the minorty here and suspect this thread is going to end up looking like this:

    I buy every single one, all of you too. Zuffa is as wholesome as Monsanto.

    About %5 I believe.

    Never bought a PPV never will.

    why would I pay 60 dollar for something while knowing someone else is willing to share their product with me online?

    I'm not sure, I have never bought a ufc event. I used to buy every pride event though.

    I have BT sport. I would not pay $60 for a PPV. Americans are getting completely robbed.

    It depends for me. I used to go to Buffulo Wild Wings, but by the time I get my bill there I could have just bought the PPV at home.

    Same here. American fans pay for what the rest of us get to watch for near enough free. Wouldn't buy out of principle.

    I have BT Sport too. You wouldn't buy a Conor McGregor PPV? I would. Am I a bigger fanboy than you?

    Once or twice a year with some friends for the biggest card. (5-7 guy usually)
    rest of the time, net or sports bar

    What cheapskate wants to watch low quality fighting instead of forking out $60 for high quality television?

    I stream online for free. Found amazing quality streaming program. Even 1 for my phone to stream high quality with no lag for free. I'd never pay for that shit, fuck Dana white.

    Impossible to gauge
    There are varied levels of fans.
    The biggest PPV buys get a lot of casuals
    The average UFC PPV supposedly has 4-8 people watching it, so it isn't like every individual pays $60-65.
    Plus a lot of fans don't have to buy PPV to see the fight (depending on country)

    In Brazil we have Canal Combate, it's around $15/m and you have all UFC fights alongside some brazilian events and other tv shows.

    Right now I'm not paying for it, and would rather stream it, download later, or watch it at a sports bar if the event is stacked, like 194.

    You followed me here from the other thread didn't you? You're like a glutton for punishment, how much do I need to clown you before you had enough?
