Bring in new talent to replace the bottom 5 every 4-6 months.

Have ppv's strictly for top 20 guys.

Develop a "feeder" organization in which developing talent can rise up from. use that on fight pass and UFN cards. Make it a zuffa owned wec v 2.0

There's ways to bring in new talent without having 80 people in a division.

A minor league and minor league cards would help a lot in my opinion. Small cards filled with lesser known up and coming fighters, they have to win 3 in a row to get into the ufc. They have little introductions about these fighters, let you get to know them a bit, watch them rise through the ranks. Meanwhile freeing up big name fighters to make more stacked cards.

This way people aren't thinking "who the fuck are these people I just want to see the main even with people I actually know!"

Of course this may hurt ticket sales and ratings at first but I think over all once it got started it'd work out. I think it'd be better for the fans anyway, maybe not sales right away but it would help them build stars and make ppvs people actually wanna buy.

Isn't that essentially what they're doing now just all under the UFC banner?
