UFC live in New York … sorta

The UFC has just announced that Matt Serra will be hosting a ‘VIP Viewing Party’ for UFC 79 at Madison Square Garden. Basically that means you’re paying 30 bucks to cramp your neck looking up at the shitty jumbotron all night. This is a pretty old tradition during the hockey playoffs when your team is playing out of town, but a first for the UFC.

Everyone is asking “Is this a smart idea? Will this be popular?” I think most people are missing the point. While I’m sure the UFC would love it if this is successful, the real reason behind this has more to do with press in New York and is part of the UFC’s continued efforts to have MMA legalized.

All things said and done, if I wanted to go to an arena and watch the UFC on screens, I’d just go to a real event. If they set up an octagon on the floor at Madison Square Garden and then had 500 retards stand up in front of it to block everyone’s view, it would be just like the real thing!

    Is Matt Serra going to strip? The poster reminds me of when those porn stars go on tour and they strip at your local titty bar.

    I wonder if that little bitch Joe Scarola will show up with his girlfriend. That is, if she hasn’t already dumped him.

    I have to say as someone who lived in NYC up until a few months ago (moved across the river to Hoboken), I would be one of the retards at this, if it wasn’t for a Penn State football game that night. I passed on the UFC event in Newark because it sucked ass!! For the price of the PPV, I can watch it at MSG, much better than any bar in town. Plus, I am sure the Q&A is just full of dumbasses to laugh at!

    Serra Gone Wild!

  • Accomando

    Does Serra’s hospital bed have wheels?

  • Sam Roon

    $30 to go and watch on the Jumbotron, or free at how many bars in the city? Where you can actually see it? Or $40 at home, in your underwear drinking beer, being fat? C’mon. Be realistic.

  • Xavier

    Yeah, nothing sounds better than paying to be around a bunch of drunken moron redneck fellow MMA fans. It’d be akin to paying money to hang out with Sherdoggers, you’d have to have your fucking brain examined.

  • F Dennis

    Serra is too hurt to fight…but not so hurt he can’t host this? hmmmmmm….

  • fightlinker

    To be fair, there’s a tiny difference between sitting around at a show and taking on the #3 welterweight in the world.

  • kentyman

    Yeah, the paycheck.

  • Wu Tang

    I want to go to this.. I might now… Its for those who trains with Serra and affilates. I done these before with friends and theclubs i train with, its just that this is advertised with Serra and his crew, which there would be some Renzo guys, some guys who i train with will be there (hopefully) and its goin to be a fucken crazy fest, esp with brazilians around talkin about pussy/sex/ and getting hand jobs in clubs. Got to love those brazilians, they love sex, even with the exploding numbers in HIV.

  • Ted Dibiase

    im sure youll see a few drunk rednecks fighting.

    i think Wu Tang is that guy on TMZ who yelled “wu tang aint nothing to fuck with” and sloppily handled the camera man
