Only Zuffa brand loyalist koolaid drinking UFC stooges want an MMA monopoly and all orgs bar the UFC to fail.

I guess these narrow minded fools are happy to simply eat vanilla ice cream at whatever price its set at for the rest of the lives.

Fighters should be free agents operating under an independent international association for pro fighters. The only way this is ever going to happen is strong alternative MMA orgs. In a scenario where fighter are free agents and rankings are independent, supporting only the UFC at the expense of other orgs is like only supporting Wimbeldon and shunning the US open.

Even Zuffa brand loyalists wouldn't want all other brands to fail. Idiots would, but anyone who knows what's good for Zuffa would want there to be plenty of small and mid-tier organisations. UFC is not the place to build talent from scratch.

Regardless, they want an effective monopoly on high level MMA. Basically everyone inside the top 50 of each division in the UFC and everyone else a feeder. Them being the only prime time, PPV worthy show in town.

I want the UFC to fail, but I'm indifferent about Bellator.

Don't want to see them fail. More mma the better for me.
