Holy shit, most of you guys are morons.

People watch fighters, so obviously that would be the first step. Stop pushing the brand and starting pushing the fighters HARD.

Legitimize the rankings and use a structured system for title shots. Big talk won't make you the number one contender.

Trim the fat off the roster and set up a D-League to filter the best of the best.

Bigger minimum fight pay and bigger checks to the heavies to entice more athletes into the sport (ie Olypmic wrestlers/boxers/etc.) even if that means I would be making 50,000k a year.

Push for broadcast rights not PPVs. Weekly fights scheduled on free tv to bring in a broader demographic.

Globalize. Set up UFC Thailand/Russia/Europe/Japan leagues.

First thing I'd do is fire the two embarrassing ring card girls. They get to much negative attention. I'd try to get one of those boxing ring card girls.

Then I'd fire a handful of fighters. Or make a smaller org to put them in and fight not the UFC a big name because people don't want to see that. You have to build them up and the UFC isn't the time or place to do that.

I'd fire the matchmakers for doing a horrendous job. I'd hire a new guy!

I'd welcome Dana White back as an employee and tell him to keep his dirty little mouth closed when speaking to the press. And remind him if he has nothing nice to say don't say anything at all or have him talk to me first about his opinions.
