My guess and I haven't confirmed this with anyone from the UFCis they are programming people to pay more so when they make a bigger raise next year, it won't hurt them as much. I expect the price to jump up to $80-100 a PPV but only 4-6 PPVs each year.

$65 is the amount to pay for a big end of the year card loaded with quality fights.  I think the UFC saw the numbers willing to buy a Connor /Mayweather card at $100 and think they can charge the same.    The new owners are in for a rude awakening.

i expect nobody will buy this, cause many cards and other promotions offer free fights

Not only that, with only 4 PPV per year, it would be a disaster if a card fell apart due to injuries.  No one's paying $100 for a bunch of last minute replacement and no-namers.

Damn had no idea Bellator was Saturday as well (long time Rampage fan) until a couple of days ago when I was looking forward to this UFC card for the first time in a long time. Was on the fence about ordering or watching Bellator, while the increase is minor (and unwarranted imo) it's just enough for me to sway my decision.

I agree 100%.   People have made the argument for years now after every increase that it's only $5 more.  Then insults are thrown calling people cheap asses.  Well, that same line of logic can be made regardless of the PPV cost.   Eventually it will be $200 and people will say it's only a $5 increase from $195 and to stop being so cheap.

So a price increase for a top heavy card where after to main and comain event I have no idea who the fighters are? Fuck that bullshit I'll be watching bellator on the big screen and will stream the last 2 ppv fights on the laptop.

Greedy fucks!

Fuckin cocksuckers. This is some boxing bullshit. Great main event, good co-main, entire undercard no one gives a fuck about.
Let's raise the price.

It's only $5, whatever. But just the principle of it pisses me off.
