That's the stupidest thing I've heard all week. Why the **** would UFC have a PPV on a Friday night.Won't happen.

they have had 2 PPV's in 1 month. But the fact that its a Friday is weird.

Anyhow if it is true, im 100% goin, and I will bet u best seat Tickets go for $800 instead of $550 this time around.

Last time was amazing, could only imagine GSP vs BJ.

Why couldnt they have a show on a friday night, Is MMA illegal on fridays or something???? What dont they like making money??, Thats pretty stupid!

It would work for me fine, It would be on a saturday afternoon, Cant complain about that.

Also, Maybe the only way they think GSP will fight again this year, Is giving him another hometown fight, And it wil make them ANOTHER shit load of cash.

this is dumb because gsp has already said in his blog that he needs rest and wont fight until early 09 meaning that it will most likely be penn vs gsp on the superbowl card.

its not illegal, but I have yet to see a PPV that wasnt on a saturday. PRIDE was on a saturday, just saturday in Japan time.

But the UFC stands to make less money because Saturday nights you can draw more of a crowd, sell more PPV's.

I dont even think Boxing has ever had Friday PPV.

lol WWE and TNA wrestling have Sunday PPV slots, so u say the next change after that should b on a sunday?

I don't see how you would draw a smaller crowd on friday than saturday... It's the weekend, friday and saturday night are essentially the same for the majority of people. I don't really see why people are upset about a friday ppv... what is the difference? Are you less likely to watch it on a friday than a saturday? If so, why? Do you have any logical reason to believe that you would have a harder time making money on friday than saturday?

I don't understand.

read the update

Update: The report has been removed from the website and no retraction has been issued. states that it contacted Dave Meltzer, who indicated their reporting was based on a local report in Montreal and that they were unable to confirm it.

If it's on a Friday night it probably would be a UFN or TV in some form.

Its on Friday because they cant book the Arena for saturday because of Hockey, havent had the chance to check the article, but on an article I read earlier they said that was the reason.
