    Imho its been great! Up until the last few years, the McGregor versus Mayweather show will hurt the UFC in the long run. I think they are going downhill fast. They are hoping to capture the Mexican/Latino market with Tony Ferguson, as they did with Cain Velasquez. If they can't manage to capture the Mexican audience they won't be around for very much longer.

    This year is clearly one of their worst, even Dana wrote 2017 off in an interview.

    2016 was great though.

    Have lost all interest but so far as I can tell, the greatest ufc event was a boxing match.


    What does that tell you?

    UFC is dying bro. Mexicans are our only hope to make MMA great again.

    You heard it here from TS. Yes we Cain.

    Actually they didn’t capture the Mexican/Latino market with Cain.

    It was embarrasing seeing Werdum with far better Spanish than the fighter they were using to try and capture that market.

    My interest has slowly waned since fights started to get cancelled, or the results would get overturned, every single card.

    Mexicans are the only reason that boxing is still relevant! And occasional circus show like Mayweather versus McGregor is it going to keep boxing alive.they love getting behind their people, they even watch their Mexican soccer leagues! With players running around in slow motion and such!

    All of the fights that needed to happen aren't going to happen because of certain bullshit & Dana getting in the way.

    Fights that need to happen

    Ferguson vs Khabib - Khabib fucked it up by weight cut

    Cain vs Stipe - Dana wont give Stipe more money & Cain is always injured.

    Conor defending the belt - Conor fucked it up by getting tko'd by a defensive boxer & now wanting to fight Diaz again for no reason

    Diaz return - Nate wants more money, which Dana wont give him. And Nick wont stop being stupid with Usada.

    Carlos Condit Return - His fault

    Rockhold Returned delayed - His fault

    Cruz Return - His fault

    MW title being defended against a legit contender - Bisping cowarding & Whititker getting hurt.

    Anderson vs GSP - GSP ducked

    Cyborg against a legit fighter - Cyborg has a dick

    MM Superfight - Wants more moeny, Dana wont give him.

    Jones vs Lesnar - His fualt

    Jones vs Stipe - His fault, Stipe wants more moeny, Dana wont give him.


    Solution

    Dana needs to stop dick riding Conor & putting down his own fighters. How do you expect these fighters to return or take superfights when Conor gloating about how much money he makes fighting manlets & Diaz.

    ' - 3 / 10. It could get lower as the negative goes well below positive. There is a game in play though. Call it a conspiracy theory if you like, but Fertitta's will get back the UFC, just wait and see. '

    2017, filled with interim titles and "champs" picking and choosing, ruining the legitimacy a little for me

    it's been a down year, sure, but these things are usually cyclical. it's not the first and it's likely not the last. we'll see how next year goes.

    It's a little shitty in parts but getting a fight card every week is good

    But you're talking to the guy who looks forward to pretty much anything non WMMA

    Need to get the titles back on track though
