    Because College Football bowl games are on at the same time Saturday
    Because of New Years Eve

    For easy reading from the front page news :

    MMA organizations outside of Japan tend to traditionally avoid booking fights on New Year’s Eve. To wit: UFC 207 will take place on Friday this week so as to avoid conflict with the fight-loving public’s potential celebration plans.

    Cause im going to this on saturday, and if the fights were the same night i would't even bother watching. There's too much going on on NYE for the card to ever get good ratings. Only thing that could compete is a big Conor fight.

    If they question is why they didn't just do it the following week, I'm thinking they want to break the total PPV numbers in one year record.

    Don't know, but it bombed last time they did it, which was UFC 141. they were expecting around 1 million for that event, and it got half of that. I never thought they will go down the friday road again, but they have..
