    To be fair to TS, my TV guide said UFC 237 on ESPN2, and listed the main card fights. Of course, when I turned to ESPN2, it was just a replay of the prelims. I have Comcast.

    HBO boxing did it for years for their subscribers, it never hurt them.

    People wanting to watch the fight live will always be the main incentive in ordering a PPV, replays don't hurt as much as people think. A few days later is a bit soon, but a week or so later is good for exposure.

    The ESPN+ paywall with the minimal UFC content on the app is what's going to hurt the UFC's PPV numbers.

    UFC trying to take all the beneficial parts of the WWE network model while giving fans a FRACTION of the content is ridiculous.

    Because people pay for events dumb ass.

    If theres a PPV worth watching for any reason I'll have the guys down for cards, drinks and whatever drugs they have. 65 bucks isnt gonna stop that. Ever.

    I do think the PPV model is dead for casuals like yourself though

    Lol how fuckin ridiculous is it that people here don’t know that. Fuckin amazing brainwashing by Uncle Dana when u think about it. A ton of people actually think a PPV is only supposed to be available after a month, and on a paid service like Fight Pass.

    I can't believe you still think PPV buys hold a massive importance anymore.

    It's a failed long term business model and from the start the UFC's goal has been to shrink the importance of the PPV revenue in the pie. Mission has been more or less accomplished.

    Let's all hope the numbers continue to be shit on PPVs. It will force ESPN/UFC to decide if they should shift and put these big events on ESPN TV platform or ESPN+ or a mix to help drive ratings and subscribers. There is more money to be made in subscribers and "free" tv than there is in PPV.
