    UFC 54 Official Discussion Thread, Results as They Come

    First off.... $35.00??? Damn, I think we're going to see $50 UFC cards in the next few years. I guess it's a reflection of how the sport's grown, so those of us who have supported it from the early days can take a bit of pride in this at least.

    Matchups:

    MAIN EVENT: Light Heavyweight Championship Bout – 5 Rounds
    Chuck Liddell – 204 LB vs Jeremy Horn – 203 LB

    Light Heavyweight Bout – 3 Rounds
    Randy Couture –206 LB vs Mike Van Arsdale –205 LB

    Light Heavyweight Bout – 3 Rounds
    Terry Martin – 206 LB vs James Irvin– 206 LB

    Middleweight Bout – 3 Rounds
    Trevor Prangley – 184.5 LB vs Travis Lutter – 186 LB

    Middleweight Bout – 3 Rounds
    Joe Doerksen – 185.5 LB vs Matt Lindland – 185.5 LB

    Welterweight Bout – 3 Rounds
    Georges St-Pierre – 170 LB vs Frank Trigg – 170 LB

    Welterweight Bout – 3 Rounds
    Brian Gassaway – 170 LB vs Diego Sanchez – X170.5 LB

    SWING BOUT: Heavyweight Bout – 3 Rounds

    35? 50? That's chump change to me and I make **** pay. Who cares? They put on great shows and I record them anyways to my DVR. So it's like buying the DVD at the same time for me.

    Let's hope we can see Tra vs Tim.

    A good comparison would be to look at fighters paydays in the 'old days' and compare the $$$ you paid for PPV. Then look at todays purses to the $35 we pay. I know that doesn't show the whole picture because of gate, merchandizing, DVD sales, sponsors/endorsements, etc but it could give us some comparison. Are we getting more for our money or less?

    I think 35 bucks for a decent fight card is a good deal.

    I'm not really complaining, but I remember the days of $19.95.
