    Or would you rather the UFC just put on exciting fights and guys get paid?

    Does it MATTER who the best is?

    And I mean it on a personal level.

    Not really. I just want good fights. The title means less and less every day.

    I like the notion of champions. Especially ones who defend their belts against the TOP contenders. If people want to watch exciting fights while everyone gets paid, then its the early PRIDE days all over again.

    Of course.

    Rankings (should) matter, belts (should) matter.

    Not really. I notice with myself that in general I dont care about the UFC anymore except for the big ones. And I used to get so hyped up about future fights,couldnt wait and root who wins the belt.

    Now couldnt care less. I have no idea who fights next. UFC lost most of its allure. Titles have little to no meaning. If title is pointless then what are fighters heading towards. UFC today is all sorts of f-ed up.

    I don't care "who" has the belt so much as I care that the belt exists as something to give meaning to matchups.

    Other sports have seasons. Players unions and happen even if the stadium is empty. Mma isn't a sport. It's an athletic competition

    I do. I think the title and rankings keeps things overall in perspective. That is if they are doing it the right way. The last couple of years things have been a little sketchy with Bisping and Conor but I hope they put it back on track.

    Well no one wants to defend the belt anymore, they just wear it as jewelry.

    I want to see exciting fights, but I also want to see the organization treat the sport more like a sport. Championships are the cornerstone of the sport and the majority of championships fights just happen to be interesting. This might boggle some people's minds, but when the best fight the best, we tend to get exciting match-ups out of it: Holloway vs Edgar, Conor vs Ferguson, Garbrandt vs Dillashaw, etc.

    There are 3 title fights on the UFC 217 card and the fight I'm most looking forward to is not one of them. If the UFC gives us good matchups and good fights, it does not matter.

    Just want to see great fights. If a favorite fighter has a title then it's just that much more appealing. There are more non-title holders right now that I would pay to watch fight than several "champs" fight.

    Yes. It's not as fun when you have mcgregor and bisping, who are like 4th best in the division, parading around acting like they are the best.
