Just read BT sport are now going pay per view on the main UFC cards starting with Jones v Santos. Absolutely livid with this and we’ve just renewed our bt package.

Yeah there was discussion about it over the last few pages.  A reddit thread as well where everyone is furious.

Hopefully it tanks and they don't do it again.  Think the plan is for a few PPVs a year rather than all of them btw.

When I spoke to BT to try and cancel, the guy I spoke to said it was news to him, kept me on the phone for ages, spoke to his manager and said it was a one off apparently. No doubt if they do decent numbers or any future Conor fight it will be on box office.

Box Office is really f***ing me off. I seen a Joe Calzaghe video on Twitter earlier when he had the Byron Mitchell fight, it was on regular Sky Sports, no doubt these days most of Calzaghe's fights would be Box Office.

I am a boxing fan and in the past year I didn't purchase Canelo v GGG 2, Fury v Wilder & AJ v Ruiz, granted the three of them were probably worth it but the point is the Box Office thing is killing my interest.

Over the years I have dipped in and out of MMA if the move is towards more Box Office content then I will probably lose interest again.

Starting to get bang into UFC so have bought the monthly pass and just watching a few different fighters from the library.

Does anyone have any fights they recommend? Ideally with the event number as well do I don’t have to google it and see the result  :lol:
Could it have feasibly climbed high enough to leave the atmosphere? ???

Get some classic Chuck Liddell down you. Absolute beast. Also look up the Shamrock/Tito Ortiz rivalry. Amazing.

Griffin vs. Bonnar - Ultimate Fighter 1

Lawler vs. McDonald 2 - UFC 189
Diaz vs. McGregor 2 - UFC 202

Pat Barry vs. Cheick Kongo for sheer madness. Can't remember what event that was on.

Bektic v Elkins ufc 209

An lesser known but under rated fight. Pure raw emotion at the end of it and I don’t think I’ve seen a fight like it before.
