Ronda Rousey vs Correia: Sometimes There is no Free TV


A commuting buddy of mine told me about his deep “admiration” for Ronda Rousey, a UFC fighter I must confess I have never heard of prior. But if Cable wants to survive in the Over the Top world – more events like this might be the key.

Ronda has been so successful that she usually finished off her opponents in 30 seconds or less. Yet people are willing to pay up to $60 for this as a pay per view. No doubt UFC will  have to add lots of filler and extras to make this into an event of some reasonable length.

The viewing options for the fight – which kicks off at 7pm PDT – are many. But none of them are free.

One of the more convenient options might be this $49 deal from YouTube (embedded above).

And since it is the perfect excuse to go out tonight, my favorite is this “Find a Bar” option. It might be best to call ahead and ask what the cover charge is.

But you can also stream it to Roku, AppleTV, Android XBOX and stand alone web streaming options.

UFC events aren’t my usual cup of tea – I’m more into golf –  but this one looks like fun. And hey, Ronda is from Southern California giving us another reason to cheer her on.

    two scary broads. That’s all I have to say about that! Did you get your money’s worth out of the one minute bout?

    I didn’t actually purchase the ppv. I did see a clip of the 34 seconds later on a stream someone had posted to twitter.
