I for one planned on going to this fight no matter where in the USA it was going to take place. Then, It's not taking place in the US at all. Of course I got a little dissappointed :cry: . Even though it wouldnt be as cool as actually going, I was wondering if any forumites want to have a meet up and watch the fights at a central location. I thought it'd be awesome if we could all watch the fights at the H.I.T. Squad gym. Of course thats not up to me, but I think that would have to be the 2nd best thing to going to the fights. I hate watching Matt's fights at my local Buffalo Wild Wings due to the ignorant nay sayers. This time, it could get physical :punch: :frantics: :punch: . And I really dont wanna get beat up :scared0011: If this is possible, someone way more organzied than I should set this up. If not, I'd be down to travel anywhere within a few hundred miles so if theres any other ideas, let me know.


WAR HUGHES!

Thats a very good ideal, we could all hoot and hollar like the crazy people we are when Matt slam's him a few times, and the best part is when they raise Matts arms up at the end!!!!!!:punch::punch::punch:WAR HUGHES

Any word from mr Hughes or mr Todd? This would be an awesome get together. I'd like to be involved in the organizing. If this were to happen, who All here would show up. My lovely gf and I would attend. Tennessean, you can ride with us. Let's make this happen! It'd be awesome. Sitting on the gym floor where Matt trained for the fight! To war! Good luck and God bless to all HIT Squad members training for a fight coming up.

Okay I've heard from Todd. Guys, doing it at the gym is not going to be a possibility. Its not for the want of Trying, Todd thought it was an ace idea and really looked into it...the problems I reckon are the legal requirements about actually showing the event to an audience...its probably a copywright issue I think...needless to say the only way round it as I understand is a hell of a lot of money :sad:

However... Todd did tell me that him and a group from the HIT Squad are going to be meeting up to watch the fights. Here is the location, he says those who want to meet up, can come too :)

"Smokey Bones in Fairview Heights, IL, noon Saturday"

I cant make it I'm afraid. :laugh:

I dunno but Boomer better let me know when Matt wins cuz I won't be able to handle waiting to watch it until late knowing it already happened. :unsure-1:

I dont know what time its happening GMT (Well BST now) let alone an American time zone :laugh:

I think that they are about five hours infront of us...which would be about Ten Hours ahead of EST, 11 Central, 12 Mountain, and about thirteen hours ahead of the Pacific.

I think :blink:

I'll be at a regatta and unable to watch until that night. SOMEONE better text me when he wins so I can relax and enjoy the race! Oh and "someone" is ANYone who has my number! Please, I'm not a patient person. I need to know the results as soon as they happen.

Does anyone know if you buy it during the day and want to watch it again, do you have to pay for it twice? I know when we buy them at night we can watch it twice in a row.

The PPV companies treat a business ordering the event much different than a household. My buddies bar was going ot order a UFC once and they wanted to charge 50 per seat. If they were doing that for the HIT Squad I imagine it would be a fortune.

Damn I hate the fact that I am stuck in southern Ontario far away from most Hughes fans. I would love to watch with forum members. That would be an awesome experience. This area is not the mecca of Hughes fans, but I for one will be a beacon to those around me, standing tall and cheering loudly for Matt!!
One day, hopefully I will get the chance to meet some of you and experience a Hughes fight together.
Great idea by the TS. too bad it doesn't work at the gym, but you are all invited to my place for the fights and beverages! Don't forget your passports :)
