Their free stuff has never been better since going to fox. Most of the spike fight nights sucked. If anything, it's the opposite.

The UFC is watered down by not allowing knees to the heads of grounded opponents.

Maybe you felt like the general quality was lacking.
But there were some MAJOR happenings and fights in 2013

Stann - Silva
Sanchez - Melendez
Gus - Jones
GSP walking away
Anderson getting ktfo and get his leg broken
TRT Jesus on a tear
Hunt-Silva

Could probably make that list twice as long if i gave it some thought.

No, the UFC puts on events, PrideFC put on the greatest shows.

R.I.P. PrideFC, oh how I miss thee.

Pride did what 7-8 events a year? UFC will be doing somewhere around 40-50 events this year. The talent pool in MMA is much deeper then it's ever been, you have divisons now like LW and WW where you can go 30-40 deep and still have quality fighters. Fight Night cards are not that much different in quality then they were a few years ago, people are just using revisionist history. The guys that were on Fight Night cards a few years ago people were complaining about back then, now some of those guys are the top guys in their divisions.
