1 Pride, 1 Shooto, 1 Rotterdam Rumble and 1 Bushido Europe.

Recommend it for every fan to see the sport live as the atmosphere is so friggin' charged.

The second a big show comes to Canada, I'll be there with bells on. I don't care where it is.

I've been two 2 Sportfights here in Portland (Matt Lindland/Randy Couture's promotion in the area) and one IFL here in Portland as well. I was trying to make it down to Sacramento for the UFC card there but it didn't work out.

None, so far. I live in Columbus, so I would really like to attend the UFC event here in March. But, damn, it ain't cheap. Good seats for 2 will cost at least 500 bucks. Would love to go, but 39.95 PPV is hard to argue with.

To all of you that have been to live events, is it really worth it? I'm sure the atmosphere is amazing, but is it amazing enough for $200+ for good seats?

Only been to Pride 32 in vegas. Going to Pride 33 as well tho. Have had scheduling problems that kept me from the last KoTC that came to Reno, but I'll catch them eventually.

Wont make the flight to Vegas for a UFC event, but if they (or Pride) comes to Sacramento I will make the drive.

I havn't had the chance to see a big production. But I have been to several FCFF and Sportfight shows in the portland area, and Here in SLC I occasionally get to the Ultimate Combat Experience. It's a pretty good little league and they put their stuff on tv.

I've only seen one and it was a local event (plus 2 grapplers quests, much different but really good).

I have a question for those who have seen cage events live (my experience was a ring event). Would you even want to be anywhere below the first loge section (the incline before the balcony)? I would think that the cage would restrict vision for the floor seats too much. I'm thinking of trying to fly to a ufc in the next year, since they haven't come back to New England in 2 years, and would like to know if I should even worry about wether I can afford more expensive seats or if cheaper seats are just as good if they're not too cheap. Thanx.
