Is the event actually starting at 10:30am and PPV starting at 2? How is every event on fight island at night but the big PPV is on in the afternoon? 

 

What is the reasoning for putting this one event in the afternoon?

Both UFC website and ESPN says main card starts at 2.... This can't be real can it?

Yeah main card at 2pm eastern 11am pacific. Dana said they are catering to the Europe for this one.

It seems like Khabib gets a bit screwed over on ppv buys over this

This sucks . I've been watching the PPV 's at bars with patio seating,  I highly doubt they'll be willing to buy an 1100am event. I'm going to go this weekend an ask...

Really? It's pretty standard in Oz and most pubs are full.

 

I guess with covid maybe

Maybe because the US isn’t the centre of the known universe. Tough concept for yankee doodles, I know.

Maybe because Khabib is Russian Federation citizen and this time is convenient for Russians?

Here PST the main event usually starts at 700pm so it's quite a change to 1100am. A pub would have to bank on people showing up earlier than usual . Most won't take that bet , I'm thinking.

You think the biggest PPV market for Khabib is the US? That’s cute.

Does anyone know how long it takes for a PPV card to be available for replay on the ESPN + app? Might have to wait for that.

I assume it is a play for the Euro market, notably Russia.
