However, if there is a UFC fight on that I wasnt expecting, I turn around and leave the bar/restaurant because I will never get a table, and usually if I want to watch it, at least one person that I know will have it on PPV if I dont.
I'm not saying I know the answer to that, I don't, but I do have a feeling that following the money could provide at least part of said answer....someone at the UFC is getting stinko rich, and we all know it isn't the fighters.
