Justifiable. This IMO is the biggest mixed martial arts fight of all time, I'm not sure how much promotion it's getting over there in the US but if it's done well this could hit 1m

I know Dana said he wouldn't raise the prices or whatever, but I can understand why he would as a one off.

Like I care, whenever PPVs get dumb I go to a wings/sports bar type place a little early and get a front row spot in front of the big screen and have bitches bring me drinks all night...this is how Anderson Silva money is earned.

You want quality? Well then you're going to have to pay for it. Silva, Weidman, and Rousey aren't exactly fighting for free, and Barnett isn't cheap either.

If it's only for a One-Time Deal then why the fuck are they doing it at all? How much money does a man really need? An extra $5 bucks I guess

This.

Though for this one I might see if I can get a biggish group together to help pay for it and bring the wings home.

I doubt this is a one time thing.
I see why. Big card double title fights. More money

So how bout non title match ppv riddled with injuries like
UFC 161 for example. Have UFC take a pay cut and charge less for the ppv. Sounds fair to me
