Wow...impressive. I wasn't so sure that they'd even crack a million, to be honest.

Good...hopefully it'll lead to more fundraisers with great fight cards on Spike.

I don't see why every UFN couldn't have some sort of fundraiser background. If I'm willing to throw $50 out for a PPV, I'm definitely willing to throw out 5 or 10 for a UFN, especially if it goes to a good cause. Raising money for charities is a great way for a company to do business, and you know that they're definitely making a lot of money on top of that.

Great news! Hopefully the UFC will continue to sponsor good causes like this one.

...and a great way to give yourself a better reputation amongst the general public.

Next time I'd like two more fights aired live instead of the sickening celebrities reading a script. I hate when rich assholes tell me to give money.

Exactly!!!! If one of these celebs gave some pocket change it would have been way more than 4mil.

Same.

And I am so proud to be an MMA fan. Hopefully the UFC flaunts these numbers.

Serously? I almost quit watching. ther would be a fight (most ended early) and then a half hour infomercial saying "give us yo $" rinse...repeat.

i flipped channels while they were doing that crap.
