I dont think there's been 3 cards in a month, the UFC has gotten big enough to have 3 events in one month thats pretty awesome (even though TUF finales are usually full of newcomers)

I dont think theres ever been 3 in a month, 2 numbered events in a month could be next.

i think its more timing than anything. With TUF ending and then the 1 ppv a month. Then fight for the troops is like a bonus.

^ yep, and also can be growth but not just because of the company and the sport but also because of their roster. With all the TUFs plus WEC's 180s and 205s plus the bunch of people they got from IFL they can make a lot more small shows now. Look at Fight for the troops, there is a bunch of new comers. That's good for the cities that don't get PPV cards, at least they get to see some UFC action live.

I hope the UFC realizes if they are going to put so many ppv a month, they should lower the prices so us- the fans - can watch them all. agreed???

UFC 89 and 89 were in back to back weeks, two in one month has already happened.

All of the events in December should be pretty good.

I like adding more cards, but then who doesn't? I do have an issue with paying for more. December is great - no problem there. 2 free 1 pay. I do have concerns already for january. 93 and 95 are no longer free, meaning we could be paying 150 dollars in just over a month. I don't like this because i don't like having to pick which card i watch. Its more fair to the fans to make things more economical as the sport grows. If there was a reduction in the cost of ppv, then i would be all for multiple. In time there will be. There didn't used to be one ufc per month, but its grown to that. I don't know how many more they could do, but there has to be a point where less is more.

i think if you do two pay per views in a month one should be free or both pay per view prices should be lowered down

a lot of cards means people are definitely watching. I love every second of it.

Not to mention you won't have the option most likely to go to a sports bar to see the AFFICTION card!

3 seems like a little much, but these cards seem decent, especially the PPV cards.

You'll hear me bitch about a lot of things in life. Too much MMA will never be one of those things.

I like there being more than one fight card in a month. but I prefer there only 1 of them to have to be paid for. I cant afford to PPVs in a month. its cool if its a ppv then a ppv on spike for free or a fightnight.
