I'll buy them sometimes but I like going out with friends and seeing them for $5. I'm just the opposite of you two. I think the matchups are getting better and the undercards are better. My biggest problem with it is not getting to see many of the undercard fights because of PPV time limits.

I also think the matches are getting better. especially since the UFC has gotten bigger and they are promoting more of their stars. The UFC is a magnificent example of marketing. With relatively little overhead the UFC is a money making machine. Even the fighters aren't all that well paid for professional athletes, especially when compared with boxing. That is one reason Lesnar is upset that Budweiser won't pay him anything.

To the poster that claimed Henderson was gentleman, I hardly think that hitting a man lying on the ground unconscious is an example of gentlemanly behavior. No matter their previous history, that was completely out of line and my respect for Henderson went to zero.
