    5 to ten years ago you never would have convinced me that I would be paying $9.99 a month to watch old wrestling videos and content exclusive only to the Internet audience. Especially considering my WWE days had been over since WWWF or WWF for those that will try to call me on my shit. SO, for 120 dollars a year. I get to enjoy all the fun shows I enjoyed as a kid. All the pay per views that Vince McMahon pretty much created pay pet view with. Including all new Pay per view events that were WWE staples. Even if you are a light casual watcher it's worth it for wrestlemania alone. Like I said it is a successful idea and a fair one.

    The UFC fight pass is basically a slap in the face to every fan that has ever been to a ufc live event or purchased 2 to 3 years straight of ufc ppv during their % 25 price increase thru very tail end of Chucks run...the UFC DOESN'T CONSIDER $120 dollars a year from the die hards they lost or the opportunity to grab thousands of people who have never bought a ufc ppv. They are too busy making it known that they want to stop anyone from illegal uploading or streaming is their priority. They have no view of the future or the idea of creating new customers...they are holding on tight and they are going to continue to squeeze the heart of every real fan...it just sucks.

    Care to elaborate on what is wrong with fight pass? Seriously I am on the fence about it.

    because ppvs aren't free. wwe gives you fake fights for free....so the ufc should too. thats the TLDR of the OP

    Not to mention, 2 / 3rds of the folks here were having trouble with the stream for about half the event today with feces pass.

    No..my point is not even the content...it's the business model..but most are too stupid to see that.

    PPVs aren't included as live events or are never included? I thought that I read they are viewable one month after the card.

    This isn't going to go well. We had our collective kvetch-fest and cry over Fight Pass many months ago. I think we've mostly accepted it by now. Like Sage Northgoatt said, "Fight Pass is awesome!"

    Or was that Kenny Florian...

    What's the point of fight pass, I don't see it. Peripheral programming like UFC now or that hot Gracie chick's show? Next to worthless. I have all the important stuff, and the scrums and pressers are all on YouTube.

    People seem to forget that maybe one of the best Ufc cards or maybe even 5 of the top ten have been on Fox sports one. The Benson Henderson vs. Nate Diaz card was so stacked it made almost every ppv of that year look like a joke.

    If their business model was to make everything free I wonder how long they would stay in business. For all the ones who seem to hate Fight Pass my advice would be not to buy it, via common sense

    Way to get the scrums and pressers ripped off YouTube and put exclusively on fight pass, genius.

    You Ese!

    *Sigh* I used to have all the UFC events and PrideFC events on my computer, along with a bunch of random MMA fights downloaded through YouTube and events from other organizations (Strikeforce/WEC/EliteXC/Sengoku/Dream/Etc.). Sadly, I had to delete them when I got a laptop and didn't have anywhere to transfer my files to. :'(

    I miss them so much!! They were great quality videos too.

    With 10 dollars a month. They keep interest. You are invested even in the smallest way. Because you are invested you don't need the constant rise and fall of building every fight like it's the grudge match of the century. We all know they are going to hug and kiss each others ass at the end. To watch ken shamrock hug Tito Ortiz and whisper in his ear " we made alot of money together" was more fake and gay than anything I've seen in the WWE. At least I know it's fake...and they admit it's fake. I don't have to hear how I've been duped by two guys getting fucked for peanuts by their employers.
