    I want to get into UFC again!

    It used to be on SPIKETV but, we don't get the channel in our cable package anymore. Does anyone here watch it online? Is there a specific streaming service I can subscribe to?

    apparently it's very expensive! they want $60 per pay per view fight and $10 a month for preliminary fights on the official ufc app. I would consider $10 a month for preliminary fights and maybe an extra $10 for big fights but the way it stands now is ridiculous. apparently it's over $700 a year to catch every ufc fight.

    Dana White is a very greedy man.

    That’s the way sports channels are. Bars buy them to draw in customers so they’re worth that kind of money. If you’re willing to watch them LATER though they’re generally available for free on YouTube.

    I think that's the route i'll have to go. it really blows that I can't just pay a flat rate and follow along in one app for a reasonable price.

    Check out Fight Pass for a lot of the preliminary cards plus a mega library of past bouts. The UFC Fight Night cards are currently on the Fox Sports family of channels but will soon switch over to ESPN. They seem to have two or three of those per month most of the time.

    Usually, when they have a PPV event, it is delivered in three stages. The early prelims will be seen only on Fight Pass, the main event prelims are shown on network TV, usually FS1 at this time (ESPN in the future), and the main card is PPV only. That usually includes three or four fights, including the actual main event. Hope that's not too confusing.

    ETA: The next big fight is Nov. 3. Daniel Cormier vs. Derrick Lewis for the heavyweight title. I'm sure there will be several early fights on FS1 and fight pass that night.

    FS1 has most of the UFC prelims and fight nights :)
    And they show reruns of past fights, so you can catch up some you've missed.
    Watched the Cerrone fight last weekend for free :)

    Met my wife at a UFC PPV showing. She worked with my friend's wife. We weren't supposed to meet, because my friend's wife had the opinion that I was "dirty" (recently separated) and would break her heart. Well, nya-nya, Kim! We've been happily married for 6 years and watch as much MMA as is on TV. PPV is out of the question unless we go catch it at a bar.
