So you can walk down the street and see a fat short guy getting hammered by a massive russian. Awesome.

Epix also did a 15 day trail on their website, and now this...

Looks like they use the fight to make a name for themselves, smart move imo.

Right. If you can't make it to Manhattan, just do the 15 day trial. No credit card required last time I looked.
