Yeah i agree. You just end up watching the TV, i don’t know how to explain it but it’s too detailed? When you’re watching a ball sport what matters most is where the ball is at… It’s much easier to follow without having to see specifics of where the players hands or feet are. I don’t know if I explained that well but ya UFC isn’t the greatest live unless you’re in one of the small amount of seats that can see what’s going on well. Even then it’s better on TV but you can say that part about almost any sport… There is obviously the atmosphere but you get that at any large sporting event.
I have no idea why someone would pay 1000+ or even 500+. The couple times i went i spent the equivalent of around 150 gbp and 200 gbp and i felt ripped off, but that was many years ago.
This x2. I go to all the local shows for the most part to see the homies fight, show some love. Say hello to half the crowd and have some dranks.
UFCs? I go to them when they are up in the PNW, with all the UG/OG bros more for the experience. Not so much to watch the fights. Don’t get me wrong live action is fun, but watching fights is 10x better on TV, not surrounded by a bunch of “twist his dick, my blue belt ass would be doing this instead of that god they need to train more” fucking retards.
The best viewing experience for me was when we lived right beside a casino. It was way better than a bar, they had a theatre room and had a bar inside of it so could get drinks and food right there then when there was a shitty fight or in-between fights just step outside the room and gamble a bit and come back in. So much better than watching at a bar or at home. I miss that since we moved away from that particular casino and casinos near me now just play it at the regular casino bar which sucks in comparison. They only charged like $5.
I am the biggest UFC nut hugger there is but I am starting to get really disheartened by this.
UK and Australian fans are very loyal to their fighters. They love the sport and had a lot of time between events due to covid.
Now the UFC and the ticket distributors know that. They honeydick the fans with bullshit rumours about the fight card - 284 was meant to have sterling v cejudo and bobby vs costa. Neither of those fights were signed but they sold the card in minutes at over $400aud for the nosebleeds
Everything fell off the card except for the main and now its full of locals that havent had a UFC fight in 12 months. UK will be the same albeit slightly better as they have more depth of fight talent.
I paid over 2k for my flights and the ticket to 284 and i did for all the previous australian cards that went the same way - I wont be fucking doing it again
