Each event will be different.
There are positives and negatives
Vegas is the coolest cause its fight town USA
A lot if the fans have been to several events there
Outside Vegas you will probably will get 25% hardcore fans 50%,casual fans and 25% retards

I like to take a lot of pictures so I am more glued to it than I am yelling at them from rows up I do get excited during fights but not always

I actually expected MORE boo'ing. I thought it was pretty minimal to be honest.

I thought the crowd had its moments during the event.

I had a good laugh during the prelims when the Doctor was in the cage testing Sean Spencer's vision by asking how many fingers he was holding up, and the crowd was yelling out the answer for him to ensure the fight wouldn't be stopped.

This is depressing. I think I might need to hear several reasons why i should go to an event now.


- you don't have to hear Goldie or Florian
- the atmosphere when the crowd isn't collectively moronic is actually pretty good...it helps when you all cheer for the same fighter (ie Hominick 5th round vs Aldo, the place went nuts. Best crowd experience ever)
- if you lurk around nearby hotels, you can meet a ton of fighters and other MMA personalities

Lack of commentary was a negative for me. Of course, there *was* the commentary from the 20 or so Chads sitting around me.
