Amazinz,
Where did you find those unaired prelims on UFC.com? They said the would be free during the PPV but I keep going back to the Pay UFC on Demand page.


It's actually on UFC on Demand site but I think there is a link for it on UFC.com (video.ufc.com). On the PPV they made it sound like the prelims would be free but that is not that case. It costs about $2 per prelim. What I do during the month there is an event is pay the $9.99 subscription.

OK thanks. They have some decent video content, so it may be worth it. Does that $9.99 get you all the videos on the site? Like the old Pride fights and stuff like that. This might be the excuse I was waiting for to permanently hook up a PC to my big screen.

The library is pretty huge now. I don't think they have added PRIDE yet but it's reportedly in the works. Supposedly many of the pre-Zuffa fights will not be added, specifically the early fights that gave the sport a "bad" name.

I was checking it out. They do have some Pride fights:

Subscription content will be updated with fresh content every week - so join now to make sure you see every fight as it’s added.

Not too many Pride fights but it is a start. I wish they did this 6 months ago before I started stocking up on the Pride DVDs.

How about the Rampage and Crocop fights being on Spike and not $50 on PPV :-)

It's awesome but I wish they would just show these UK shows live. With MMA becoming more mainstream I worry about hearing the results prematurely. Anyway, UFC tonight and football tomorrow, going to be a good weekend. :-)

I second that. I'll just have to stay away from any MMA sites for the rest of the day. I can't wait for Rampage vs Henderson.

My money is on Henderson, btw.

A good fight that went the distance. Rampage continues to improve as a fighter.

Going into this fight I would have put my money on Henderson as well but Rampage really has improved dramatically. He's finally living up to that potential he flashed in PRIDE before going through that horrid stretch. It was an awesome card overall and free! I really disagree with the Bisping/Hamill decision and it seems fishy that in a clear 30-27 match (from my perspective) the one Las Vegas judge scores it 30-27 and the two UK judges scored it 29-28 for the hometown fighter. This ranks up there with the Nog/Ricco Rodriguez decision in Japan during the first UFC/Pride crossover.
