I agree. I think Fight Pass is great. I think just the library of old fights is worth $10 a month, so everything else is a bonus.

The only thing I would do differently is give some kind of a PPV discount to FP members or a free PPV each year or something like that,

Yeah but with that you would need a like 1 year plan or something Phone Post 3.0

Most of the complaints that I've read here about fight pass are from people who have never even tried it out. One guy here going so far as to say he's "vehemently against fight pass". Whatever that means.
Most of those trying it out are finding great value in it. It could be better, sure, but it's already pretty good.

I think the issue for most is that as the cards get worse and worse (more watered down), they are paying more and more. I don't really care but for example, I have Spike in my cable package so I used to get every fight possible that was not on PPV. So lets run the numbers now....

FS1 is not part of my cable package. If I want it, it's an extra $10/month, so $120/year.

I believe there are 14 PPV's scheduled this year. If I order all, it's another $770.

Now, if I want to see the FP cards, it's ANOTHER $10/month, or $120/year.

So, to watch roughly 40 UFC cards, I'd have to spend $1,010 this year. If I want to watch 268 NFL games in a season, I'd spend a maximum of $225 (Sunday Ticket, all games). And I could spend ZERO to get all the best featured games weekly, all playoffs games, and Super Bowl.

UFC: 40 cards = $1,000+

NFL: 268 games = $225.

So no, it's not the $10/month. Again, it's that the cards are getting shittier as the prices go up. I think it's just the straw that broke the camels back for many. I was starting to lose interest before and now I don't really care other than major fights. MMA is kind of like boxing for me now.

I think the UFC is shooting themselves in the foot by not giving the old fights away for free.
They should just use banner ads and stuff to generate revenue rather than making their product less accessible.
But oh well, I guess they can maybe make more money off this, but it seems like something only existing fans would pay for. They aren't winning over any new fans with fightpass. Phone Post 3.0

More people are watching the facebook prelims now that it's behind a paywall than when it was free.

Perfectly said. They are just nickel and diming North American fans too much. People are fed up and aren't going to keep paying this much. The ppv buys are proof of it. Time to make a deal to put PPV on hbo, raise the fight pass price and put ppv's on there, or sell the rights to FOX.

UFC might be growing other places but interest in the US is dying fast! I used to host every ppv. It went from 25 people coming and being excited; to 5 or 6 people to split the cost; to not a single person interested in coming to even watch the last 2 ppv's. Phone Post 3.0

Well why is it not worth it for you ? Phone Post 3.0

because some people feel no need to watch fights again.

also do you even get the cards in CAnada?

I"m pretty sure they make you watch them on cable, like on sportsnet, or sports net 1.


I have no need to watch a fight 6x, and it's not worth them putting cards on that could easily be on TV instead, and then forcing you to pay for prelims which were previously free.

Taking away something and putting a price on it automatically makes it not worth it.

Oh here have this for free for 3 years, okay now it's 10 a month go fuck yourself.
