SuperFreakingRyan - Not buying but going BWW to watch. Phone Post 3.0
I always either watch with friends or go to BWW (or some other bar/restaurant) but I honestly don't think I can make even that much effort for this card. I know since I almost never pay $60 for a PPV myself that I'm not sending much of a message by skipping it, but still, I don't think I can watch it out of principle alone. I really hope the buys are low enough that something good comes from this, i.e. they don't try to pull this crap again. Phone Post 3.0

If I wasn't a cheap ass that never buys PPVs, I'd want the main card to be much better than the free fights. The free card has Cejudo/Jorgensen, Birchak/Soto, and Larkin/Brunson, which is damn solid. IMO, no need to put money down when the prelims should provide plenty of fun - for free. I mean, Baszler on PPV? Get real. Phone Post 3.0

I get every single event free here in the UK and I'm starting to struggle to sit through some of these cards.

It was bad enough when it was an event three times a month but putting multiple cards on the same night is just a joke and a byproduct of the UFC getting greedy IMO.

Bring back two shows a month, one on tv, one on PPV and stack the cards full of great fights. Phone Post 3.0

robopimp - Take away the main event and this is worse than an FS1 card. I will stroll into the bar before the main event, but they may not even show it. Phone Post 3.0

Am I the only one who believes FOX forced the UFC not to touch the "JACARE VS. MOUSASI" card? The UFC could've easily replaced the Overeem & Mitrione fights with the Castillo & Baszler fights... so how come they didn't? I think the relationship between FOX & the UFC must be strained. The UFC really fucked up with the FOX audience, and the failure of the UFC on FOX has a huge impact on FOX Sports 1.

It seems the only reason FOX made a deal with the UFC was so that they could start FS1, and if that's the case, FOX must be really upset with them. It just seems like FOX must've complained to the UFC or vented their frustration to the point where the UFC is going to take a major hit on PPV buys.

What did the UFC do to fuck up with the FOX audience?

That's a good price.

Be nice when UFC doesn't have the PPV model and just does all their card on Fox in the US but that won't happen for a few years.

I have purchased every card since prior to UFC 100 but don't think I'll buy this one. Not because I am not interested but just because I won't be home. Maybe I'll buy it and record it but I doubt it.

Yes they are, which is why this PPV is really in trouble. It's not just the shitty card the UFC is battling...it's opening weekend for college football and there are some sick games on.

What did the UFC do to fuck up with the FOX audience?

Well, the corporation's formula is heavily reliant on hardcore fans and they totally forgot how to deal with new viewers. FOX 2 is a great example of how the UFC fucked up. Even though it had Chael Sonnen, Bisping, Rashad Evans, and Demian Maia, it was just an atrocious card for new fans. And as a result, the ratings plummeted for FOX 3. If the UFC didn't fuck up, the ratings would have increased after FOX 2.

Nate Diaz saved the FOX deal in my opinion, he headlined FOX 3, stopped the ratings slide, and then his fight for the belt on FOX 5 drew the highest ratings since the dip. And after that fight, the ratings stayed about the same for a little while. But the UFC put no thought into FOX, they just looked at it as a platform to build up certain fighters. So they made the flyweights headline, and that's when they really fucked things up.

The ratings went back down, and I guess the FOX audience was just done by FOX 11. FOX 11 was a solid card (Browne vs Werdum) and averaged 2.5 million viewers, the lowest rated show. Then the most recent card, Lawler vs Brown, also averaged 2.5 million. The UFC just totally fucked up the FOX deal.

I won't be buying it, first time in a while. I want to see TJ/Barao 2 but not for $60


indeed.

 

Honestly if it was still the 135 and 125 titles on the line in 2 main events I would've bought it, just because it's 2 title fights on a card which means big implications should either have an upset. The fact they've spread the 2 smaller title fights out across 2 cards really hurts them. 178 I will buy because there are some awesome fights, but it won't be for the main event solely.

I think with these titles, you pretty much have to do those UFC 168 style main events. Heavier title on top, and 125/135 title in the co main. It's the only way to make any money and give those titles a high profile spot. TJ/Barao 2 could've legit headlined a card if they waited like a year, and let Barao build himself back up with wins.. while TJ got a good defense in or 2. People want to see that rematch.. but not 2 months after the first fight, where Barao was destroyed, and had nothing for TJ.

How can it be that I'm a fucking 25 year old dude who sits at home too much, yet I know for a fact I could run some of these cards better than the UFC's current model? I mean if you HAVE to put UFC 177 on.. throw a fucking big name HW fight in the co main for god sake. Just pay 2 fighters some dough and let's get a JDS vs Barnett style fight to save these cards. They had plenty of time to pull something like that off. Just pay the fucking fighters to fight on short notice, PRIDE did it ALL of the time. Money talks.

Instead? They cancel UFC 176 all together, lighten 177 and 178 to the max... How exactly does that seem like good business strategy? Jesus.

The free event on Saturday was better. The sept. 5th free card is better. It will blow my mind if 177 does over 100k buys. Phone Post 3.0

UFC 147: Franklin vs. Silva was worse, it did 140k ppv buys. UFC 161 was just as bad, it did 140k ppv buys.

I'm buying it, but splitting it with 2 other people. The card is still worth $20 to me for the Renan and Castillo fights. Phone Post 3.0
