    Hey,

    I don't know if it was discussed, I was out of the electronic world for the past week. I noticed that they are going to do it on Sunday night. Is there a reason?

    Are they trying to go head-to-head against WWE's Royal Rumble PPV??

    There will be a ton of people looking for something to watch after the NFLs conference championship games tonight. The main cards set up to poach fans from the American football demographic.

    Well, it's not a PPV. Plus, WWE's Royal Rumble isn't today, that's next week.

    Soooo there's that.

    Dana enjoys losing to NFL ratings. Although I did watch UFC 182 and Ravens/Steelers at the exact same time. Not a bad deal actually.

    Don't feel too bad, they even made a embedded series for it (which they usually only to for PPVs)

    It was not by happenstance that they booked this fight card in Boston knowing full well the chances were in favor of the Pat's playing at home, on the same day.

    You've got that backwards. The world spins the other direction.

    At least tomorrow is a federal holiday. Otherwise, I couldn't get my drink on. When is this shitty card starting? The co-main event is the only one worth watching sober.

    The reason this is confusing so many people is that Monday is a holiday in the US, but all of Conor's European fans are shit out of luck in that respect. A bit of a faux pas on Zuffa's part IMO. I know that they want to push McGregor stateside, but making it next to impossible for the growing European fanbase to watch the fight live without missing work on monday morning isn't the smartest thing in the world to do.
