Video: Is there a negative impact on fan interest with rising UFC pay-per-view costs?

·1 min read

It’s expensive to be a fan of mixed martial arts.

Over the years, fight fans have encountered rising pay-per-view costs, and it appears the ceiling has not yet been reached.

Starting with UFC 270 on Jan. 22 and all pay-per-view events going forward will come with a price tag of $74.99, a new high for the promotion.

Is there a potential to have a negative impact on fan interest in the sport with this cost increase? Can the promotion expect to see lower buys with the higher price tag?

Our “Spinning Back Clique” panel of Mike Bohn, Danny Segura and “Gorgeous” George Garcia answered that question with host John Morgan.

You can watch their discussion above or check out this week’s full episode below.
