    Not surprising, the biggest stars in "Football" like Ronaldo and Messi, are bigger than the sport. There will always be those that eclipse their sport.

    Tell that to the MMA fighters who share his cards. I bet they think it affects their MMA careers.

    Overall, I see your point though. And I'm going to take this opportunity to say here that after years of being called a Zuffa shill for saying they are smart to promote the brand over the fighters, an awful lot of fans are now disappointed in what it looks like when a fighter becomes bigger than the UFC.

    This is not just "bigger".
    He's basically unrelated to MMA right now. Those who know who he is might not even understamd the difference between MMA, UFC and boxing.

    UFC don't really care about the opinions of either fighters or fans.

    You think Americans have an idea about which sport Ronaldo plays? They just know his name and image - like most casuals.

    I think you're a bit overestimating Ronaldo's popularity TBH....
