The fact that you're thinking about whether it's good or not proves that it's working which is what they want.

As long as people are talking they're doing ok

WWE chief loses $350 million in a day
Vince McMahon is no longer a billionaire after the company signed a new television deal that disappointed investors.



....uh huh...

Oddly enough, some of WWE's previous investors were not too enamored with their online streaming product.

That is an important piece of the puzzle along with the TV situation. I hope the UFC does not parallel the WWE too much in their approach with the same avenues. While they are their own masters being a private company, the UFC can still make some costly mistakes along the way with Fight pass if they are not careful.

I like Coker. He seems like one of the better guys in the sport. But I'm not sure he has the stones to run the UFC. You have to look past Dana's BS. If you don't watch scrums and press conferences, it isn't that tough to ignore. Sure he says some shitty things sometimes, but he is good at what he does. He is dedicated and works a tough schedule that most executives don't want to. Plus he has the stones to get shit done.

Coker had trouble getting his HWs to fight each other. He had to create a GP to get them all to fight. It's like having the lunatics running the asylum.
