UFC on Fox 18 Ratings Payout Perspective:

Pretty good ratings considering the main event was not between two “brand name” opponents or for a title belt.  However, in comparison to last January’s UFC show on Fox which pulled 2.82 million viewers and the previous 2 January events did much better (2013 – 3.77M overnight 2014 – 2.55M, 2014 –  2.82M).  The NBA probably pulled away some of the target demo.  The event is pretty comparable to the PBC event last weekend on the network which drew about 2.5M when all was said and done. MMA Payout will keep you posted on the updated ratings.

    More contradictions from the professional cherry picker “Gil” aka Sampson, who is in denial of what he said, pathetically attempting to angle his argument and deny what he stated.

    After I called you out for attempting to compare GSP/Jones, etc to Johnson-Bader, you realized what you said was delusional and now you are trying to back track.

    Go try to spread more PBC propaganda. It’s amusing watching them burn up in flames while you attempt to spin their numbers.

    Defiance it is. What a surprise!

    Muh Aliases tries to tell me what my point was. His evidence is a quote presented in a dishonest and totally out of context way. What does he do when this is pointed out to him and his efforts totally fail? Ignore all of it and just repeat his debunked attacks on a straw man, LOL. Just like when his cherry picked stat turned out to be wrong yet he pressed on like the cornerstone of his attack on his straw man argument didn’t just go up in flames. This is how most of our argument has gone. He can’t deal with the way his cherry picked stat was wrong or how his points and lack of reading comprehension were exposed and how his misleading use of quotes was shot down. He’s just going to keep ignoring all of it in an attempt to save face. In his world if he stays in denial and gets the last word then he can feel better about how things went. I can practically write his response to this for him at this point, LOL.

    “Gil”s doing everything he can to back track from his statements. He has to because he knows how delusional his comments were. He compared GSP/Jones to Bader and refuses to acknowledge it, all the while attempting to spin PBC numbers because he is a propagandist who can’t accept the reality which debunks his comments. He denies his own quotes and refuses to address them after posting them. This is getting very amusing.

Got something to say?
