State of the UFC

Right now more conversations center around controversy. Dana white, fighters health, ratings, bad marketing decisions, etc.

How does the UFC turn the conversation to the actual sport?

People seemed more concerned with the drama around the sport than the sport itself. Maybe it's kids just growing up in a time when reality shows are the norm.

I don't care if business sucks for them. It allows other MMA organizations to grow and we'll see other talented fighters.

The good ol days when UFC, K-1 Dynamite, Pride, and others were around at the same time.

I would like to see Bellator, Dream and WSOF come up.

Train the mind.

Welcome to the world of mass media. Do you think it's any different in any other sport? Controversy fuels newspaper sales and gets clicks on the websites.

Newsflash, outside of the forums the news is mostly dominated by the fighters and fights.

Wand....oh how the mighty have fallen.
