JerodR - Dana of all people should know that sometimes streaming actually brings more people to the brand. Hell after asking for the Pride stream he liked them so much he bought the company.
You need to fuck right off with this comment Phone Post 3.0
Did he ask for an illegal stream? Yes. Did he buy out Pride? Yes. Get over it. It's called a joke. Phone Post 3.0

Rambo John J - 

Isn't saying millions and millions.

the same as just saying millions.

millions + millions = Millions

Just doo the math.

just saying it seems like they are manipulating the words to exaggerate.


In that case, I've banged hoes and hoes and hoes. And hoes.

I know people who became fans of UFC thru watching streamed events. They go on to order PPV's that they think are worth ordering. Dana doesn't know diddly squat. What they need is a new promoter. It's nearly impossible to watch TUF (Canada vs Australia) in Canada. In order to watch a PPV event I have to go on my computer room, order Fight pass, watch a few fights on there, then its off to my living room where I pray it's on sportsnet 360, since I can't afford to order fox sports 1, fox sports 2, fight pass, and on top of that order $60 event. It's enough to drive someone broke and crazy.

How much do you all think Zuffa is spending in attorney fees to continue this war they will never win?

And how much do you all think they have recovered in these lawsuits?

Honestly, I wouldnt pay for the cards if that was the only way.. I bought GSP vs Kos.. and was so pissed that I wasted my money on that shit. I couldnt imagine doing that every time.

I became a fan of the UFC by chance back in the day of pirated satellite cards when Tito was mauling people. So if it wasnt for pirating, I may have never become a fan. But I have purchased cards, bought DVDs, been to shows.. ect. So I think its to their benefit either way. I want to follow the sport and the UFC brand but not at the price they require. If they came up with a $200 subscription or something Id be all over it and probably never pirate. But they wont..so I wont. Its a compromise with the fans.

no fucking doubt. right in the middle of fight action that viewers pay to watch. the fuckhead UFC puts unignorable ads. complete asshole move.

Been bitching about that for awhile. Reputable forum members have been telling to quit bitching it's just a little commercial, no big deal. That attitude is why consumers get fucked. Then again I am still buying PPVs so I am part of the problem. Phone Post 3.0

In other words give us something we can afford. Ive seen every show that the UFC has put on, but when you require your fans to pay $55 - $160 per month just to follow, its asking too much

"We've lost millions and millions to piracy". No your product got free exposure and advertising because people who wouldn't have bought it otherwise chose to pirate it and were happy with the results and spread the good word to people they know.

It's enough to drive someone broke and crazy.

What the fuck are you talking about? TUF is on sportsnet 360 every week, and pretty much anything that isn't a ppv is also on sportsnet 360. In fact, this is pulled directly from sportsnet 360's main page:

"UFC
Sportsnet 360 is the new home for UFC in Canada. Every Wednesday night, UFC will be front & centre with 4 hours of UFC programming in prime time headlined by exclusive Canadian coverage of The Ultimate Fighter. The UFC Wednesday night line-up will also feature UFC Central, UFC Wired and Unleashed.

The channel will also provide coverage of more than 30 live UFC events on Saturday nights."

I get it, we all hate Zuffa, and Dana, and whoever else, but for fuck's sake if you're having a tough time finding half of what you say, you must be at least half retarded. You also needn't worry about having to pay for Fox sports 1, because they don't even fucking have it in Canada. For the sake of humanity, I really hope you were joking with your post.

Feel sorry for my American bros that you cant get Bt sport, every ppv,fight night etc without extra charge on the monthly package ( £40 a month ). There's no fucking way i'd shell out 60 clams for every ppv.
