    I was thinking 3 hours but not sure. With a 7 fight main card, are they risking going over the alotted time? All it would take is a bunch of decisions and maybe a few nut shots.

    Also the bar I watch at closes 3 hours after it starts.

    However many hours of PPV you're willing to purchase/schedule when you sit with providers I think.

    So did the UFC schedule a longer block of time than usual for this card?

    I remember they went over the time limit once, can't remember which event though.

    They added an hour very recently after the card that came close to running over when they couldn't do post fight interviews. They used to block 4 hours, now they block 5.

    144 had 7 fights on the main card and 4 of them went to decision (including the title fight), I don't remember there being any problems there.

    Just checked and they have a 4 hour block scheduled from 6 pm to 10 pm
    Do they usually do a 1 hour preshow or is this PPV scheduled to start an hour earlier than the normal 7 pm start time?

    3 hours is typical for ppv time. There are 4 hour ppv shows. WWE makes Wrestlemania 4 hours. If UFC makes a super 3 title fight card they could opt for a 4 hour ppv.

    If you look at the time on PPV it says 10:00pm till like 1:40 am. They block out almost 4 hours

    Depending on where said bar is, they may be forced by law to close at that time. Not sure if they have to kick you out or just stop serving.
