This is how i know i might have an mma problem.
Just the main event has some interest to me and maybe seeing if Blanco can get his **** back together.
I dont care about most of these fights and its gonna start pretty late over here. By the time it is over, it might be like 4am.

And im still gonna watch it.

That's not a problem though... If you don't watch fighters you don't care that much about today, how can you care about any one new tomorrow.

Not happy about them going back to the whole Fox Sports 2 Prelims thing. We shouldn't have to watch three different sources (FB, FS2 and FS1) for 10 fights or any event for that matter. Whatevs.

i agree, I understand they want to get people to buy FS2 but they need to keep full events on 1 or the other. the youtube/facebook fights are fine because with TV restrictions we wouldnt be able to watch those without that outlet. but watching 3 different channels for one event isnt a good way to get new fans. who the **** wants to swich a channel to watch that unless your a die hard fan like us.

@p4p: That's not my point ... my point is, not everyone has FS2 and even people who do have it don't have it in HD, so it does make a big difference. 

In other news, my programming guide is now showing Prelims and the Main Card on FS1.

I get FS2 in HD with Uverse, along with the FB prelims for the ppv's on their sports channel.  Best tv provider I've ever had.

I don't get FS1 but I get FS2 so I'm happy that they spread out the fights a little bit. Even when it's a ppv it's still on 3 different channels so I guess I just don't understand the sudden complaint.

This event is entirely on FS1 prelims start at 5pst and main card 7pst.  I get both FS1 and FS2 so it doesn't mattet what channel. FS2 is essentially the UFC channel.
