UFC 251 is shaping up as a potential competitor to UFC 250.

Paige VanZant is signed, and I'm sure she'll be on the main card. Despite Frankie Edgar also being on the card, it wouldn't surprise me if Paige was in the main event. I mean, who wouldn't want to pay to see her perform once again? She's 2-3 over her last 5, with her 2 wins coming against incredibly tough opponents Rachael Ostovich (Record: 4-5) and Bec Rawlings (Record: 8-9). That's "Take My Money" territory.

i watched about 4 minutes. 

i  very much dislike the ufcs model and dana. but the arguments i heard being made against the pay model were structurally awful and being made by 2 guys who have no understanding of business economics or branding etc. 

fuck watching 29 minutes of that.

card has filled out a bit but is still awful. lol at expecting people to shell out 65 bucks for that garbage.

Exactly.

Sure, there are some people for whom $65 is pocket change.

And there are some who are so desperate to watch MMA that nothing can replace seeing it live.

They'll shell out the money for the main card and not think twice.

For many others, some of the questions are: Isn't there some better way I can use that $65? Aren't the prelims enough for me? Do I really need to see Nunes fight a +450 underdog live in the main event? Do I need to see the co-main live, involving 2 guys who have combined to lose their last 5 fights? Can't I wait until the next day and watch a 20-second gif of the highlights of those fights?

im not sure why they think amanda nunes is a star, much less capable of selling ppvs as a headliner during depression era levels of unemployment and hardship. are they relying on the star power of felicia? wmma was based soley around rhonda. how do they not understand this?

not to mention anyone with a functioning brain can find better quality streams than what espn has been offering, for free, online.

The card looks good to me. I'll definitely be watching. Looking forward to seeing Cody return and O'Malley fight. Sterling vs Sandhagan will be a good fight and Magny vs Martin is also a good fight.

Some countries are still on lockdown so the UFC doesn't have a huge selection of fighters to choose from right now. Things will improve over the summer. I'm just glad they are putting on fights.

Aljo/Sandhagen is the crown jewel of this card but it's not worth the price of admission.

Formiga/Perez is also a great fight but that's on the early prelims for some reason so no need to buy the PPV for it.

Pretty bad, really bad. 

  I live in china and can watch for about $3, so I guess Ill get it ... The last couple lockdown cards were great so Ill put on my mask and pay for this to keep out the stink, maybe a couple fights will surprise.  Nothing better to do but video games.

 

Sidenote:  My chinese wife is an opera singer and has never watched MMA, but man she pulls out her phone to record some Zhang Weili and send to her WeChat group (Chinese Twitter), lol.  was funny to see her get all worked up watching Joanna Vs. Zhang.   Chinese Gung Fu !!!!!!!!!!!

how do you watch for $3? Via UFC app?

Ouff it's rough. I kept expecting them to add at least 1 big fight to the card but obviously that's not happening now. Fine for espn, but definitely not ppv quality.

Heinisch might have to withdraw from UFC 250 because one of his corner guys tested positive for Covid.

(According to Aaron Bronsteter of TSN Sports on Twitter.)

If you only know one fighter on that card then honestly I don’t see how you could call yourself a fan of MMA.

Pretty much my thoughts, good to see somebody with a bit of reason and logic here.

I mean, it would be an excellent card for ESPN or ESPN+. For a PPV it is junk.

the card as a whole is actually pretty decent. PPV isnt the best but not the worst ever

was a GREAT night of fights. Only one terrible call. Martin was robbed vs Magny. those 30-27s were dumbfounded.
