Sorry guys. No gate. But most importantly, no sports bars ordering it. Can't be held in NY or Vegas due to new state rules. It's off for sure.

I think the PPV numbers would be massive. Every person that goes to the bar to watch it would be forced to stay home and buy it themselves.

You were also 100% sure that Conor beats Khabib so now it hopefully happens

A lot of people wouldn't bother signing up for ESPN+ and ordering it and just skip it or try to illegal stream. There is a huge percentage of UFC fans who are accustomed to watching big fights for free at sports bars that wouldn't necessarily order an expensive PPV at home.

Dana said last night they're looking for alternate venues. They're going to have the card one way or another.

 

Also, by the time this fight comes around they'll likely be able to use the Apex again.

I wonder how that works. I see countries introducing 2 weeks to 1 month quarantines or banning sports for such a period. They think that after a couple of weeks more people will get healthy than newly infected people? Isn't that a bit optimistic?

not having bars order it will lead to more homes ordering it, its such a big fight they will do everything they can to make it happen.

As long as it is ESPN I am not ordering.

They need to go back to the easy simple way. They lost a lot of over 50+ yr old fans.

There should be exactly one more domino after that last one:

 

UFC holds Khabib vs Tony in CHINA (of all places), because the coronavirus has already run it's course over there.

If it happens Disney / ESPN would be smart to sell ad's and put it live and free on ABC. It would get hugest numbers with no competition.

Just trying to imagine a fight of that magnitude on ppv with zero live audience. It would be like a season 1 TUF fight. So wierd.

No, there is not a huge percentage of UFC fans who watch at a sports bar.

China's end game is strong.

It’s weird seeing two guys on an Internet forum type that they refuse to use the internet to watch the sport they love. Y’all have already made it through most of the trip.
