I doubt you will find one. It is very expensive for an establishment to get a license to show pay per view events to the public. No place in town that I know of even had the de la hoya / mayweather fight for that reason.

Well, it's too late, but apparently I was mistaken. There were three places that showed it:

WI Madison Hooters @ Madison 608 829 4668
WI Madison Pedros Mexican Restaurant 608 833-9229
WI Madison Pedros Mexican Restaurant East 608 241-1294

Who knew?

Presumably, all those Forons who double as Hooters/Pedro's regulars.

Michael Vick called; he wants to know a place that's carrying the next dog fight from Trailer Park, GA. Maybe someone can tune it in after the latest edition of human cock fighting is over so he can have a double feature.

Easy there with the far-fetched comparisons. From what I've seen and read about UFC, it is less barbaric than boxing and less dangerous than football.

You can see a decent amount of it on spike. It's a lot less barbaric than it used to be. The referees now place great importance on the safety of fighters. They don't fight 3 times in one night anymore. And there is an incredible amount of skill involved these days compared to the early days when one slimy little brazilian dude was able to break limbs of people twice his size and win.

It's more bloody and violent than boxing, but it is also more pure as a sport at the moment, due to not having 30 belt organizations and 25 athletic organizations with arbitrary rankings.
