Hmm, Id think I'd rather watch SF for their price for which Im not sure what its price is(25/35?) than the price gouging UFC does and now WEC...

Absolutely awful pricing. I used to be pissed that Direct Tv had dropped Versus, and was looking forward to WEC PPVs so I could watch the fights honestly. Now I say no, this is just too much. If there's a UFC PPV and a WEC PPV in the same month that's getting close to $100 with tax.

I think I'll stick with Strikeforce. At least with Showtime you also get movies.

Whilst WEC is a premier event...it should not be sold as PPV at that extortiante price. The reason its become so popular is partly due to it being free to watch...and visiting live is nothing like watching a PPV event...visiting even a small regional promotion can be exciting, whilst paying for such an event would be crap...especially if its extortinate.

The UFC are begining to push the limits in terms of cost...their PPVs are too expensive, and made more so because of their frequency, and what they charge for a visit is nothing short of shameful...shocking...who do they think they are coming to England twice a year and charging some stupid ammount for half way decent seats...and I mean that...sitting in the gods and paying 500 pounds stirling NOTHING is worth that sort of money
