Bad news, the price of a UFC PPV just went up $5

Bad news, the price of a UFC PPV just went up $5

This article would have come much sooner if I didn't spend three hours watching Miss Universe and pausing on each contestant to digital stalk them through Google. Without the advent of technology, I wouldn't know people like Alexia Viruez, Maria-Jesus Matthei, Gabriela Kratochvílová, Yukimi Marsuo, Aygerim Kozhakanova and Maria Ekelof existed. Folks, I didn't even want the list to be that long, but it was compulsory that I paused on each country throughout the opening. It took 47 minutes for me to get past a 6-minute segment. That's not even normal -- I could fuel a Tesla car with the amount of tabs I opened on Firefox. I still don't know who won, so don't ruin it for me in the comment section -- but I'm hoping Miss Croatia takes it.

So yes, it appears the price for the UFC 168 PPV went up to $59.99, denoting a $5 price hike from the former $54.99 HD broadcast. See, I had to break it down for people that are horrible at math. It took some time, but I'm fairly certain my calculations are correct. I didn't show my work, however. Take that, 6th grade algebra teacher.

Check it out for yourself in a recent ad campaign for UFC 168.

I'm the creator of MiddleEasy and Nickelodeon's The Adventures of Pete and Pete. Just kidding about the Nickelodeon stuff, but that would be really cool.

Thank god the most I've ever paid for a UFC event is $5 after over something like half a decade of viewing 90% of all of UFC's events.

I stopped ordering UFC events after Dana called people on the Internet trying to block SOPA/PIPA terrorists. Either the bar or a stream but the UFC isn't getting any of my money (save for attending a live event in the future)

If the HD broadcast was $39.95 I would buy much more. As a big UFC fan, it's just too damn expensive to watch them all. I wan't to support, but sadly I only buy about two or three PPV's a year. Mainly Vitor Belfort PPV's are must buys, but he's been fighting free on Fox lately so...there that goes.

well you can get a VPN for like 60 bucks a year with servers in europe then you can watch UFC live for free and in HD on UFC.TV all legal and as much as you want.

You americans must be stupid to pay that kind of money just to watch the UFC...

It's $69.99 in Alberta Canada HD. This is without the increase.

I might pay for this fight just so I don't have to sit in BWW with 500 douchebags.

That's just a ridiculous amount of money for 3 hours worth of entertainment. I've known hookers who charged less.

i watch with friends and chip in but if it gets to a point i have zero issue with streaming the fights.. ive already been doing it for every fuel and fs2 event. the only way this makes sense to to cut back on the number of cards and make the ones you do have better but somehow i dont see that happening.

It's totally cool guys; with the increased profit Zuffa will finally be able to continue to not increase fighter pay.

In the UK I'll normally just have a night out with friends and go to a snooker hall or 24 hour bar and watch it at the end of the night at around 2am. Awesome way to wind down. Fuck paying that kind of money. People will always fill stadiums to watch UFC event. They're not going broke.
