Hi, Long time UFC fan here from the UK. I'm more of a spectator than a fighter but love the sport.
MMA hopefully will become more main stream over here and things should start to take off.
Here's hoping
Cheers

Welcome aboard pitbull! Nice to hear that UFC is so well known over in the UK. How well known is Pride where you live?

Hello from Syracuse, NY, USA. My account name says it all. I'm a huge MMA fan, and I order and follow all of the fights; pay per view, or mainstream. This new game is an outstanding idea and will help me get even more involved with the MMA world.

Lol yeah, if only the $500 that we all get to wager with wasn't fantasy money... O well, at least the real prize at the end of season 1 here is a REAL $500

Pride isn't very well represented over here.
A channel called Bravo on sky tv is the main channel for UFC.
You cant get pay per view on sky either for any MMA events.
Still, the sport seems to be taking off so maybe more coverage in the future.

Pride has been shown on Sky Tv and you can catch it sometimes. K1 is frequently on Eurosport as is alot of Muay Thai events.

Cage Rage is on Sky PPV, hopefully Bravo will maintain the rights without needing PPV but it looks like Dana is targeting the UK market and will no doubt want the revenue from ppv's.

The sport is taking of and we have UFC 70 at the MEN Arena.

Whereabouts in UK you from and you planning on going to this UFC in Manchester?
