Default making threads for each fight of a UFC instead of just for the event

I have seen this on another forum and it works well. this way if someone only wants to talk about the Matt's fight or maybe the Sherk fight they can without havign to read through 20 pages of posts about other fights.

Noone is stopping you making threads for individual fights, of course, there is usually a generic spoiler thread on the night, and I'd still include a spoiler warning in the titles incase some people cant read...you'd be suprised

That just means VCU has more of a reason to jack his post count... Anyways I don't see why we have never done it. Then again we must like going thru a 100 pages of posts.

I think it would be better to have a different thread for each fight. I can see maybe putting a spoiler warning on the prelims, since they aren't broadcast live, but I don't really see a need for spoiler warnings on the live events. If someone can't watch the fights until later, then just stay off the internet.

People put warnings up because there are too many crybaby whiners in the world who make issue of it if there isn't a warning. It's like the tag that says to not use the blow dryer while sleeping. Or that shampoo is for external use only. Some idiot, some where has done it and cried over it enough to need warnings.

I never really understood the spoiler thing myself. It's a live event, if you miss watching it live, them's the breaks.

Me neither. if you don't want to know what happens then don't open the thread about it.
