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.

Zeus is represented by Galactus in his avatar image because he has an immature obsession with Marvel when they went all sci-fi back in the mid 80s. 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.
