Why is this one an early start?

Most fight island events have been normal timish

Good card

It is to accommodate the Russian viewers since Khabib is headlining. They are 7hrs ahead of EST so the 2pm EST start is 9pm in Khabib’s hometown.

That is so the perfect amount of vodka may be consumed between the start of the early prelims and the main event so that fans will remember the fight but not beating up their wives afterwards.

I figured that was it

Fine with me
Khabib is the man, and has fans worldwide

Me smoking some potent herb and watching the fights is gonna make me take saturday off...I can't work after a UFC watching session
Guess I will schedule accordingly and work extra hard on wed-fri and on sunday.

Good day to cook something I guess, I might slow cook some big hunk of meat for glorious enjoyment.

I love watching Gaethje fight. It would be amazing to see him win the belt. However, this fight will look exactly like every other Khabib fight. The only thing that makes me question if for even a moment is the fact that Khabib lost his dad and maybe they means a loss of focus or motivation.

Considering they haven't done this with any other fight of his that I can think of, it seems odd. Do they even have PPV in Russia, and if so, wouldn't it be at a fraction of the cost of a USA PPV? Obviously there is something I'm not seeing here, but considering this is a PPV, I'm guessing the vast majority of fans with go and attempt to purchase this event, only to find out it's already went down.

Looking forward to this card. Not a fan of the early start time though, I got some shit to do on Saturday and this starting so early is a bitch.


Oh well
