This is crazy, two should be PPV cards on Spike for free. I have heard rumours about not being able to get PPV liscences but what is the real story here are they banking on huge international PPV #''s and thus giving our wallets a break in North America?

Whatever it is I love it and can't wait for more free MMA action.

Makes me wonder if they're still having difficulties ironing out the HBO deal...free is definitely better than $40.

Maybe they're just wanting more and more fans. If they put quality fighters on TV for free, even more people will take notice.

FREE!!!

Im guessing it's free for two reasons. #1. Rich Franklin vs. Martin Kampmann and Forrest Griffin vs. Hector Ramirez are the two headlining fights thus far. Im not fighter bashing ether I happen to like Rich Franklin and Martin Kampmann.

#2. Time difference. Just like UFC 70 only hard core fans are going order PPV at odd hours. They will prob make more money with commercial spots than PPV buys.........

Nothing against the UFC big wigs but they own the UFC to make money, not to give us fans free fights.

it's gonna be free because of the cost difference in putting a show on live as opposed to showing it delayed

also would you really pay for those fights???

we seem to be getting a bum deal in the uk considering that dana white is supposed to be so excited about bringing the ufc over here he keeps giving us average fights
