  1. Shogun is back!!

  2. Wow who has the bigger right hand is the only question now!

  3. Rather see hunt vs Nelson on ppv

  4. this fight could have gotten a lot of ppv ratings or even a lot of viewers on free tv. but instead they put it on fight pass. what a waste of a good fight. I for one, refuse to subscribe to this garbage.

    • Exactly, they are trying to force you pay the $10 and forget it comes out of your account every month.

      • I love how the ufc talks fight pass up like you’re getting something special. all fight pass is, is making u pay for stuff that u use to get for free. in the past u never had to pay for ufc fight nights, prelims, TUF, ect. I thought the ufc was trying to become a mainstream sport, but I don’t see the NFL, NHL, or NBA doing this.

        • The numbers are growing, they are right to get the most out of it. They’re getting a raise in popularity consistently while getting more money. There isn’t only of formula of success in business.

        • umm… they’re doing more free events than ever.

          and mlb/nfl/etc all have their own channels…

      • it’s 10 dollars… that’s like 2 beers at a bar or 1 deli sandwich.

        they certainly do want you to just continue paying, but let’s not act like that extra 10 is gonna break the bank. plus, once you have the subscription you can stop complaining about not having it.

  5. This could co main a massive PPV. Not many implications for this one, but it should be a hell of a fight.

  6. Fcuk this UFC Fight Pass Bull $hit! Nobody has their man cave huge TV connected to their computer. Not paying for a computer room experience.

    • plenty of people have that setup.

  7. they should let chael fight wandy in japan. they dont give a crap of drug use in japan. they just want to see a good fight, so do i.
    besides that they should hunt or nelson put in the cage with bigfoot and the other one should fight someone out of a lighter weightclass…. like dan henderson….
    i know, this doesnt fit to the ufc fight philosophy but in my opinion these changes would make this whole fightcard mindblowing….

    • It’d be great if every retired fighter started fighting in a “for retired fighters” organization in Japan!

  8. I’m with Hunt on this one. A right hand as hand as Nelson’s, but he doesn’t have only a right overhand to throw.

  9. UFC Fight pass ?? Really I feel like boycotting UFC all together. I spend enough on PPV 60 bucks now this BS.. Fine put the crapping card on fight pass.. But this is a good one.. geetin pissed.

  10. Watched nearly every UFC PPV for all of history with the only exceptions being during the blackout era and single digits. Fight Pass pretty much cured me of this, and I have missed the last four UFC’s catching only highlights and results. The events are pretty watered down these days and it appears they intend to continue to put fights the diehard fans are drawn to on fight pass. My cable bill is way down as a result.

  11. Looks like a good card for Fox sports one.

  12. The UFC greed is out of control. Dana White makes a million a week yet he can’t wait to inform the world that Barao “isn’t getting a fuking dime” for not being able to fight. Barao didn’t miss weight, he got injured trying to make weight. Great way to treat your champion who White claimed was maybe the best p4p only days earlier. I will never buy a ppv or fightpass again.

    • You on the other hand, humanitarian that you are, pay all of your contract employees regardless if they do the contracted work. How many contracted employees did you say you had?

      • Apples and Oranges Kyle. Not everyone gets to have a monopoly like the UFC. If you pay for UFC, you should sit in the corner sucking your thumb with a dunce cap on.
