Thx UFC Rewards

Recommended Posts

I do not know a sport organization with a comparable initiative for their fans. Thank you for that.

 

And thank you for this amazing glove!  :)

I live in Belgium  ;) . Bellator are only in US. From my perspective, UFC wins  :)

Well, I'm glad they're treating the Belgian fans like gold. (Insert many emojis here)

  

They treat Americans like garbage. The UFC's Fan Expo is ridiculous. You can expect to flush lots of money down the toilet and spend lots of time standing in lines.

  

Bellator had Fedor, Royce Gracie, Randy Couture, Cung Le, Sakuraba, and Frank Shamrock at their last free Fan Fest. At the upcoming one they have Royce again, Ken Shamrock, Kimbo, Liam McGeary, Tito Ortiz, and Kurt Angle. I reiterate, that's free and the lines are nowhere near the length of the the Fan Expo lines. Not to mention the price of tickets to Bellator events is about half and their shows are as good, if not better than the average UFC.

I've met plenty of UFC fighters at events for free. In fact, the Montreal event this year is the only event I didn't meet fighters at. More than I can say for the few Bellator shows I've been to.

I've met some UFC fighters at events for free too. And I've attended a lot of things for free at UFC events (weigh-ins, Q&A, autograph session,...).  

 

I would pay for Fedor. Shamrock, Royce and McGeary maybe...But seriously, I would never pay to see Kimbo, Angle or Ortiz  :)

Get some better seats. I met Luke Rockhold in Montreal. There were a few fighters milling about that I didn't bother with.

   

I got a pic with Phil Davis after he won the tourney at Bellator Dynamite. Saw Josh Koscheck, DC, Josh Thomson.. plenty of people. My girlfriend even got a pic with GSP there. 

 

EDIT: What I forgot to mention in the first part was that I still had to pay to be in the event. Bellator's Fan Fest involve responding to emails. That's it.

Responding to emails is still more work than I've had to do to meet most of the UFC fighters I've met.

You had me until you mentioned girlfriend.

Clearly BS

I met more fighters in the lobby at the UFC fan expo to be honest and the expo is a much more enjoyable experience. You act like Fan Fest doesn't have lines. As you said, it's free, of course it has lines. You can get a UFC expo ticket for free too on UFC Rewards and it's not the same 8 fighters every year like Bellators Fan Fest.

Not to mention the UFC often does tailgate stuff for a lot of their big events with meet, and greets, all of which are free.

 

As much as I will **** on how little they did fan wise for that Montreal show I went to back in April, that's been the exception, rather than the rule. I've been to far more shows that had tons of stuff going on than shows that had nothing.

I understand the changes due to cheating. I absolutely have no problem with that.

 

But why this:

 

4. All UFC Rewards items that require shipping are now only available to members with a US or Canadian address. 

 

I live in Belgium. With this rule, I would never have received the glove.

 

That's really a sad decision for UFC fans all over the world  :(

Sounds like they don't plan on that change being permanent.

Their (quick!) answer:

 

Hopefully the change in shipping will be temporary.  Unfortunately, the fraud was occurring internationally.  That is why we stopped the shipping immediately as we identify and deal with the individuals.  I completely understand your frustration.  We are working on resolving this as quickly as possible.

 

 

Thanks for being a UFC Rewards member!!

 

 

That's good news  ;)

Just curious but do you even like anything outside of the UFC?

I've seen a few people cracking jokes when I make comments like this, but until you see it, it sounds like nonsense.

   

Straight up though, I've definitely got some cool stuff autographed by Fedor, Wanderlei, Sakuraba, and a bunch of real legends literally for free.

got a $600 dollar giftcard for my points finally.

Have slagged Rewards off many a time for all the mistakes but fair play to them. They emailed me and made some decent offers that didn't work before I got the giftcard.

I was able to get 2 tix to UFC 209 and 8 months of Fight Pass with my remaining points. I accidentally deleted the email containing the Fight Pass codes though. LOL
