You know, I hadn't even thought about it until last night. I just happened to stop on Spike last night when I was flipping through channels and saw a commercial for UFC 89 "Live and Free on Spike" and it damn near made me cry tears of happiness and joy. I've been having withdrawal symptoms lately.

Now I'm stoked. Free UFC = Happy Fleek

Well, to be honest with you, I get just about 99.9% of my MMA news from here (MMAPlayground) and it just seems like sometimes the threads all blend together. Once I saw the commercial, I immediately started questioning whether or not I read it on the Playground. There are cards up for like the next 6 UFC events and couldn't remember exactly which ones were on Pay-Per-View and which ones weren't.

I'ts been out for a while.... now the real question is...

from that comercial when they say "LIVE and free" how true is that "_L I V E_" statement ? Because they still say it's 9pm ET

For the Playgrounders in England, is this going to be Live on Sentana(or Senata whatever) ? If so I'll find a streaming source cuz' I hate tape delays.

Here's the deal:
In the US, it is FREE on Spike as a SAME-DAY TAPE at 9 PM ET. You almost certainly will be able to find some live streams starting at roughly 3 PM ET.

In England and Ireland, it will air LIVE at 8 PM local time on Setanta Sports.

The pick deadline for 89 is Saturday at 11:30 AM ET, 8:30 AM PT, 4:30 PM GMT (I think).

Agreed. I made this mistake the last time the UFC was overseas for the Alves/Hughes fight @ UFC 85. I hopped online to check something and Yahoo Sports already had the headline of Alves beating Hughes. Pissed me off to no end.

I came pretty close to making a wager against some Chad at the bar that night, though. He was trying to get me to put $50 on Alves and he would take Hughes because "Hughes is the f'ing man!"

It was like I was Marty McFly and had the Almanac from the future.

BUT...I couldn't do it. The dude was a major tool and a major douche but I just couldn't force myself to do it. Looking back, I know I should've.

He was "that guy" who supposedly knows everything about MMA. You know, things like:

- Matt Hughes being one of the top BJJ guys in MMA (yes, he said that to me)
- Matt Hughes would destroy GSP if they fought a 4th time (he said that, too)
- GSP is overrated
- And lastly...every time someone would go for a guillotine or even be remotely close to lock one in, he'd yell, "It's over! REAR NAKED! REAR NAKED!"

hilarious! I love peopel like that. I went to Hooters once for an event (bad mistake on my part) and when cheik Kongo was going for the kimura (or was it a keylock?) on marrerro he kept yelling "ARMBAR! ARMBAR! HES GETTING THE ARMBAR!" and all the people sitting around him kept asking him questions as if he were an expert on BJJ in mma or something.
