    :ugh: :wtf:

    Saw it posted on Sherdog and then I checked the UFC site and it says it is a PPV now.

    Do they really think they can make this a PPV card because of one fight? It will be the worst rated card if they really do this.

    agreed

    it's a great free on cable TV card but it's terrible as far as PPVs go

    that ppv sandwhiched between two solid cards is gonna fail. they can probably get more advertisement/commercial money by having it on spike then they would in ppv revenue.

    I think it only says PPV right now because they are going to announce the HBO deal at 71, but we will see

    I can smile when its raining.
    It could be listed as PPV in the UK and Spiketv in the US. I'm sad if it goes to HBO thats more damned money I have to spend a week on cable to see mma.

    Ufc said that Spike TV didn't want to pick up the event.

    Wow. That is an awful card for pay tv... I don't think I'd pay $20 for the card as it sits right now...

    Hah way to waste an entire event on shitty fights and now making people pay the same amount as they would for say 71 or 73? Fuck that noise. I do have HBO however, so I suppose I'll check it out there if they get around to it.

    I'd be interested in the Griffin V. Guida fight.

    not a very exciting card....i don't think many will buy this --

    Rich Franklin vs. Yushin Okami
    Forrest Griffin vs. Hector Ramirez
    Jake O’Brien vs. Tom Murphy
    Marcus Davis vs. Jason Tan
    Jason MacDonald vs. Rory Singer
    Ed Herman vs. Scott Smith
    Tyson Griffin vs. Clay Guida
    Eddie Sanchez vs. Colin Robinson
    Dustin Hazelett vs. Stevie Lynch


    I know if it were me....i would save my money for UFC 73

    Best fight on the card, and it most likely wont even get shown.
