I honestly don't think this will change the UFC's overall image at all. This is kind of expected.

I think so, but "casual" fans absolutely love it. It's compelling to alot of people, regardless of whether it's staged or not. For me, I'm already interested in the fights, so I don't need any drama or trash talk to become interested (even though sometimes it is funny/entertaining).

Ummm, he was being sarcastic, hense the use of the eye roll in the Seinfeld gif...

As for the answer to this thread: no, the stuff does't happen enough in UFC actually.
Why, Maidana just recently shoved Floyd in a confrence too, I wonder if DC was copying him. It's on youtube, look it up.

It got them more exposure with no real backlash.

Jon Jones, Urijah Faber, Michael Johnson, and Dennis Bermudez

if i was a casual, i would just see it simply as fighters fighting, and no one got hurt. maybe that's just me, i don't know.

as a fan, the only thing i really noticed was Dana Lite. i never look at press day fights as fights, but rather i look for what funny shit's going on in the background of the fight; there's always someone or something happening that's really interesting/funny as fuck.
