    Starting a new thread since the other one got locked. Will try to keep this one going.

    Anybody watch the fights last night? That Gaethje/Poirier fight was legit. What a finish.

    The fights were good just wished more people watched it. The ratings were bad

    That's weird. I was really looking forward to Gaethje/Poirier. That was a PPV quality matchup imo.

    Personally, I think it is just oversaturated. You can watch MMA like 24 hours a day now.

    I think it should just be Fight Night every Saturday and then PPVs every 2 months instead of monthly. I like the frequency of FN but the PPVs have been suffering lately. Cut em in half so you can really stack the cards.

    I have them recorded to watch tonight. They didn’t come on until like 2 in the morning here. Ronald McDonald House was on instead.

    Glad to hear Poirer and Gaethje didn’t go to a decision.

    Yeah I had to download the Fox Sports app because the Nashville affiliate had the Ronald McDonald thing on.

    Poirier/Gaethje was lit. Easily better than all of the fights on the last PPV.

    That main event was a great fight. Gaethje is going to make every fight an exciting slug fest.

    Yeah for sure. He flat out said the other day he doesn't really care about winning or losing, just wants to entertain people. While that seems short-sighted from a career standpoint, it's hard not to respect him for that. He also said he's only going to fight 5 more times. Probably a wise decision given his reckless style.
