how can they fit 5 fights in less than 2 hours? thats stupid, just put more fights on ppv each card that way we get more for our money

(awaiting the people saying so and so's fight is worth the ppv comment)

Each fight only takes 20-25 minutes if it goes the distance. That's roughly 2 hours.

i understand that but they have to prepare for every fight to go the distance and that could cut into the ppv someday, why not put more on the ppv? we the fans have given a lot and for 44$ i think its more than fair to give us 6-7 guarenteed fights a ppv, and some ppl pay more than 60$ for each ppv

3 hours is normally the most time they can buy without charging more than they do. That's why WWE always charges a good $10 more than usual for WrestleMania, because it runs 4 hours on average. So if UFC wanted a 4-5 hour show then it would be $55-60-plus, and that's if the cable/satellite providers would/could carry it.

I'm fine paying $44 for a PPV, but this one is only worth it for 3 of 5 guarenteed fights, IMO Lister-Okami and Blackburn-Chonnan should be main card instead of the other two, I'd even like to see Hardonk-Wessel more then Dollaway-Massenssio and Al Turk-Kongo. Then again that's only my opinion.

I'm buying this PPV tonight. I think it is well worth the cost for the card. I've been looking forward to this one since Rampage vs. Wandy was nothing but a wild rumor. The UFC has nothing but my support for giving us fans a fantastic card like this.

I am also happy with the fights being shown. I think Al-turk stands a pretty good chance at GnP'ing Kongo into a TKO, which is something I would pay $45 for in itself. Massenzio vs. CB should turn into a good standup war because both are good wrestlers so their styles will negate each other. Even if they do end up wrestling it will be an excellent opportunity to witness two top-of-the-food-chain wrestlers display their skills.

Methinks we'll get to see at least one undercard fight. Most likely Barry vs. Evensen or Hardonk vs. Wessel.

OK, we are underway! Barry vs. Evensen will lead things off, the fighters are headed to the cage now.

Edit: OVER. Evensen injured at 2:36. Barry hit a solid leg kick just as Evensen planted his left leg, resulting in the injury and stoppage. There goes my Hot Bout.

no love for chonan? man am i dissapointed that he lost

I had Blackburn UD and changed it to TKO at the last minute. I shouldn't have underestimated Chonan's toughness. At least I got the pick and a wager. 2-0 and up a few g's. Best start for an event I've had in a while.
