Yes,watched it one time when Randy Couture fought James Toney.They never showed another UFC in that theater after that.The place was only 1/4 full.I love big screen TV so I thought that it was great.The fans were just typical fans there that night.


They cheered the loudest when Randy got the submission.

I was gonna say, how the hell they gonna fit 10 fights in 2 hours 

May be an image of 3 people, indoor and text that says 'RÍ Dwayne Johnson @TheRock Can't wait I'll be watching!! Champ vs Champ Jan is a world shocker. Israel is just a special athlete on that path to status. #UFC259 Highly recommend tuning into this one.'

What a card. It's refreshing to see a main card with 5 good fights with names I recognize. Prelims are incredible as well. Let's go!!!

Cool. So since it’s not a movie it’s ok to make noise and use my phone at times obviously right 

Has there ever been a UFC card with 15 fights on it?

Edit: Never mind. UFC 2 had a tournament (I think 16 fights in all) and the Fight Night card on July 26 last year had 15.

Yes

Looks like a good card but $70? Damn...

We are live! Trevin jones walking out with tears rolling down his face. I've got bautista -220. Hoping to start the night with a W. 

WAIT! WTF? These fights are already starting? Can whoever makes these goddamn threads start putting the correct times in the OP please...... this has happened so many times, but today in particular is a real curveball because the card seems to be a regular ppv.

Might throw down some bets tonight but not sure on who yet, first glance at the card / odds wasn't really sure who I really liked.

Not at home either so tuning in may be sporadic, smart man would save his money

According to Ug News, prelims start at 8pm,  And early prelims start at 8pm. Duuuuh

Big fan of the ref. He's become my favorite. Would buy his guided meditations.
