 if it was regular movie price i would have definitely checked it out...i was saying the ufc should do fathom events for years...but the price just isnt justified when i can go to a bar and get food and drinks all for the same price...

I`m with you on this one Goku.I`m having to make spending adjustments at this time,and as soon as the sports bar that I currently go to starts having a cover charge,I`m going straight to the theater. I want to check it out anyway.I`m a big fan of big screen tv.

Showing the UFC in movie theaters meets Washington State's definition of "closed circuit television"....and the state would get a cut of the revenue.No surprise it isn't happening here.

 the better way to feel it out is to start low and create a buzz imo....by starting with the prices so high and desperately scrambling to add fighter hosts it just wreaks of greed

When the UFC gets the feedback & receipts from participating theaters,I`m pretty sure that they will look into having more fighter hosted shows.I look at this as just a feeling out process by Zuffa.

For $20 it should be in 3D on IMAX screens. It would be cool if they showed it at drive-ins.

 looks like they actually reduced the prices from 25-20...a step in the right direction...drop it another 5 and they will prolly sell out
