Its what they should have been doing in the first place if the plan was to make the UFC more mainstream. I think they botched that opportunity.

They used to do double those numbers on Spike for prelims and Fight Night cards on a regular basis. These were the highest TV ratings of the year, and we're in July.

It may not be dying, but it's sure not what it used to be.

And yet shertards still struggle to understand why the UFC would put any name fighter on a prelim and act like it is some insult or demotion every time it happens.

Season 1 of tuf averaged a 1.9 for the whole season.

Chris Weidman = #1 fighter in the UFC. Fact.

Pretty decent numbers

I doubted Conor,
Now I feel silly
Aldo's a goner
McGregor's a billy (GOAT)

ESPN got like 950k for that HW title fight. Showtime hasn't had one this year. HBO gets 1m on a regular.

fave fighters: fitch, machida, munoz, ellenberger, gustaffson
fave boxers: mikey garcia, donaire, mattyse, mares

Fight Night went on WAY longer than I expected, I thought the main even was much earlier.

But I wasn't going anywhere until Frankie dispensed the scheduled beating.

Rory MacDonald took a dive in the 5th round against Robbie Lawler...what a fix!

UFC is dying and anything under 170 doesn't draw.

Conor's reach doesn't extend beyond those who already pay for the product.

(GSP) has established himself as #1. Over Anderson and everyone else. Including Fedor.
