    Seems like we get this topic always, whether it's another high profile fighter getting pulled by USADA
    UFC Press Event (PED Event) Discussion (Video)

    fighters refusing to fight, injuries, TV/sponsorship deals not working out.

    I think I should be the host as I called this many years ago before it got easy to spot that the sport will soon be done

    Now Bloomberg saying Fertittas hit hard, profits fall 40%
    UFC is in trouble and they know it.
    Why i think UFC will go down before 2020
    Front Row Brian - "40+% of Reebok money goes to Fertittas/Dana"

    Rumour: UFC for sale

    even if WME goes bankrupt (unlikely), someone else will buy the shiet at a better price next.

    UFC/MMA is here to stay.

    And the next one likely will do 200k, the one after that will do another few 100k.

    GSP isn't here to stay forever, and Conor already is refusing to fight which makes you think why a certain somebody was happy to let him go box.

    Don't think Conor's done, also new stars will come along as they always have

    The UFC isn't dying, it's just changing (for the worse for us hardcore fans)
    But WME will groom new stars and focus on mainstream appeal before sports, and the UFC will be just fine

    A business/sport like mma cant continue to constantly grow in popularity and interest, there will always be people who just dont like it for the violence or whatever reason but it will never “die” like you people love to perpetuate, as long as we are all here loving the sport there will be a show to watch

    Who cares if its the ufc

    Yeah with a UFC champion on it, who's now a bigger star as a result
    The nr PPV draw in combat sports is a UFC fighter now, how is that a bad thing?

    I think Conor has about 2 fights left, orginanlly 6 fights but no way he will fulfill his contract.

    I expect 2018 to be a good year financially for WME, they'll likely have Conor fighting twice but then 2019/2020, most of the stars will be retired, a certain few suspended due to PED violations (Jones/Anderson)

    They cannot seem to groom anyone they want as they keep losing, Weidman, Sage, PVZ, Holms.

    Yeah... but that ufc fighter got the low end of the deal (good for him but not for mma)

    and it cost ufc 6 fights of McGregor, cant seem him finishing all 6 fights in his contract
    and now look at the current situation, he is being a diva and not wanting to fight and is sitting out

    I wonder how much WME actually made from the fight, still think they got screwed over badly.

    This could be a fun subforum, evidence of declining financial situations for WME's UFC being constantly refuted by WME shills and self-taught business experts.
