I'm an MMA fan, but it took me forever to finally get a UFC Fight Pass subscription. My thoughts were that I didn't need another monthly subscription, plus I could find all the stuff I wanted online for free. But in the last few months that really hasn't been accurate. UFC Fight Pass finally stepped up their game and I caved, happily.

Here's my three reasons why I think you should be watching too (and no, they're not paying me for this).

1. Exclusive UFC fights

I mean, this is the main reason. I know they always had them, but the fights were just so-so. I never really cared enough to buy a fight that wasn't worthy of network TV. Until they aired Anderson Silva vs. Michael Bisping on Fight Pass. YES ANDERSON SILVA. Of course Silva is worthy of network TV, even a Pay Per View event, but it was on Fight Pass of all places. Oh and did you actually see that fight?! Because I did, and honestly it's in my top three fights of all time. Holy cow that was crazy!

Also, this just happened.

2. UFC Fight Library

I'm a newer fight fan, so there's a lot I never got to experience. You can go back to PRIDE, WEC and Strikeforce. You can experience the glory days of MMA when the sport was in its infancy. How cool is that? I can't tell you how many times I have pulled up a random fight and watched while I should have been working (not for of course, I hope my boss isn't reading this). You can also see Combate Americas and Glory kickboxing. So you're getting to see every aspect of the sport, the past, the present and the future.

3. Original Shows

After I subscribed to Fight Pass (which by the way is less than $10 a month, same as Netflix) I stumbled upon a section on the site that had original shows and I got hooked so fast. I have been binge watching Dana White: Lookin' for a Fight, where White and his friends travel around the United States scouting new fighters and signing them to UFC contracts. In fact he was in Costa Mesa, CA just two days ago filming the next episode! There's 18 original shows currently on Fight Pass, incredible! I could spend all day watching this stuff!

Bottom line is if you consider yourself a fight fan and don't have Fight Pass I don't know what you're doing.
