I know they want to suit US tv but 9am just seems weird
They've been operating on 'US Time' over there.

The timing is kind of all over the place. Main event saturday is the standard time, with main fight set to start around midnight EST (5am Ireland/ 9am Abu Dhabi)).
Tomorrow's card starts at noon EST (5pm Ireland/ 9pm Abu Dhabi). Maybe Dana thought he'd throw the locals the midweek event at a decent time for them.
The max fight would have ended at about 2am over there last weekend.

How big is the viewership going to be for this?
The Countdown video went up on youtube a couple days ago and has 3M views right now. Could be a massive number.

Over 1million. But a some way short of 2million
I'd estimate about 1.4-1.5m

Is that less than cowboy fight? Think it will do more than that one

Dustin impressed me against Hooker. Hooker has a huge gas tank, the gym he trains at with Adesanya is full on. Conor doesn't have that gas tank, Dustin's Ju Jitsu is better.

That did 1.35M

It’s funny. UFC don’t release the buy rate, so what we usually see is estimates. I think the cowboy fight was at 1.1M initially, because I remember it was less than Usman vs Masvidal, which is 1.3M. But McGregor posted a screenshot of some document stating 1.35M. I do wonder what the real number was for Usman/Masvidal.

The cowboy fight initial estimate was close to 2m.
When they moved to ESPN I think the estimates went out the window for a while.

If Dustin gets it into or beyond the 3rd round it's anyone's fight if Conor comes out swinging he needs to hit hard and fast no showboating just crack him get him down and ground and pound.

Hooker fight should be a good one too he is a great fighter hopefully a little humble and much more focused on getting a win rather than a slug fest he will need to go for the tko as if it does go the distance he is a great fighter but punches need to land to generate points.

Just wondering does anyone know how I can legally stream this? I have Now TV on my smart TV so no Sky / BT box / subscription.

Can you buy the fight and steam via the BT Box Office app?
