    UFC made the decision today that starting with UFC 141 on 12/30 that all PPVs will be moved back to 10 p.m. Eastern time from 9 p.m. The 10 p.m. start had been part of UFC since the start of the Zuffa era, but Dana White made the call to move it up one hour.

    It's for the benefit of the West Coasters.

    UFC PPV has been under-performing so they feel this can be a reason

    The cost is why they have been underperforming.

    Along with the WWE motto of having one every 3-4 weeks.

    This - its like $750 a year to see all PPV's from UFC (15 x $50) - too much

    This means I will be going back to ordering less of them.

    I'm not in my 20's anymore, I don't fucking like staying up til 1 am anymore.

    I think most UFC viewers watch in a sportsbar or order with a group of friends and split the cost while the people who buy WWE PPVs is mostly parents with their kids.
