Before signing up to evelen sport I asked them about their ufc rights because it says on their website they would be showing fight nights but nothing about the PPVs.

Their reply was they are unsure yet because bids are still going on, wonder if they will have the fight nights and someone else will end up with the PPVs, hopefully BT get to keep them but don't put them on their box office channel that they seem to be doing with every boxing match these days.

Imagine charging £60 a year for Fight Nights and not having any of the PPVs. :slol: :fp:

If someone does make UFC PPV an actual PPV rather than being part of BT Sports etc, it'll fail so hard.

Yeah it'll be a wash out, I couldn't imagine too many in the UK would be up for paying pretty much monthly for a UFC PPV.

I have BT which even puts up the cards on their website for replay and I still don't watch even 50% of ppvs. Trying to get PPV money out of the UK for stuff that starts at like 3am would only work for mcgregor cards

The UFC’s exposure here is going to fall off a cliff when the BT deal ends and putting numbered events on as PPVs will just make things worse.

Floyd Mayweather: Boxer responds to Khabib Nurmagomedov challenge with 'get the chequebook out!'

Boxer Floyd Mayweather could be open to a bout with Khabib Nurmagomedov after responding to the UFC fighter's challenge by saying: "Get the chequebook out!"

On Sunday the 30-year-old Russian called out American Mayweather, who is also undefeated, adding: "In the jungle there is only one king."


Mayweather would strawberry float Khabib up in a boxing match, wouldn't even be remotely close.

Ridiculous. I hope it happens. I'll be putting every single spare penny I have on a Mayweather win. Will be shite odds but free money.

100%. Never made a single bet in my life, but there is no chance that Mayweather loses that, Inshallah.

That guy on the keyboard has mad fat fingers. Just made me all the more impressed at how calm and controlled Khabib was in all of the build up and the entire fight, beyond human strength to ball it all up and resist provocation. Until it all exploded obviously but by then he'd schooled McGregor.

Damn you beat me to it.

I caught the last half of it. Usyk is impressive, interesting that he's looking to move up to heavyweight next year.

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

I was. Interesting fight. Although it looks like bellew was ahead on most people’s scorecards I don’t think he would have managed to keep it up to the last round. Nothing to be ashamed of, he did well.
