Can we go ahead and accept that the UFC is officially done treating MMA as a sport? | Page 3

    The UFC just makes the fights they think people will pay to see, as every prize fighting promotion has done since the dawn of time.

    If you don't want Conor to have so much power, stop streaming your favorite fighter's cards. If you want to improve fighter pay, stop streaming your favorite fighter's cards.

    What Ronda and Conor have in common is that their fans aren't bums.

    Exactly. Great thread, TS.

    Just look at the Conor 2 division champ BS for example: He was the only one ever allowed to do it.
    Every champion in the past (dominant ones, that had defended their belt multiple times) were told they would have to vacate their belt before moving up to challenge for another belt, like Dana said about Aldo when the fight with Pettis was in the talks. Now think how many fighters would´ve been a 2 division champ if they never had to defend their 1st belt even once, like Conor? Just another example of how shitty the UFCircus is becoming.


    http://www.mmaweekly.com/jose-aldo-...enge-anthony-pettis-for-ufc-lightweight-title

    “He’ll vacate the title, move up to 155, and fight for the title,” White said of Aldo. “If he doesn’t win the title at 155, he can go back and challenge for the 145-pound title if he wanted to do that, or if he wins the 155-pound title and two other guys would fight for the 145-pound title.”

    Coker is in love with a ramp and freak show fights, some big screen and washed up dudes. It's more of a joke over there than you think it is.

    That is because Viacom is interested in the ratings business. Coker has been scooping up every prospect, signing top UFC fighters and putting on great ideas like one night tourneys. If the people tuned in more for Lima vs Larkin more than Kimbo vs Ken, then he would not put on the freakshows. Still, Coker still has martial arts integrity and that is how he is able to get Mir Fedor done in a month while Dana could not do it in two decades.

    Tyrone has cleaned out the division. RDA and Lawler are fighting for the #1 spot. There are some nice prospects, but the only one you could throw a title shot at right now is Covington and lets be honest...you think he's wrestlefucking and beating Woodley? Nate has a much better shot than Colby.

    Casuals determine PPV sells.

    Most ronda and conor fans are casuals. a hardcore most likely streams 99% of events

    And Brock ended up being the best HW in a weak division for a while. So what? Is Nate the best WW in the world? Is he even close? Did Brock sit out and refuse to fight for a year. None of that even comes close.

    Totally agree. Which is why the UFC doesn't care what hardcore fans want.

    It began when the UFC decided to market WMMA with their main product. One year before Ronda first fought in the ufc, Dana said there would never be females fighting in the octagon.

    Then Ronda beats Miesha "worldbeater" Tate and we're supposed to buy that product forever...

    You mean to tell me Rogan was not being sincere when he screamed about every single fight "this is one of the greatest fights of all time!!!" ????
