    None of that matters as long as WME is still making money

    They don't want to lose the Anti-trust lawsuit so they're low key failing on purpose.

    The numbers are down because they have fights every other week. People tend to only want to watch one card per month and when there are more no one gives a shit about it.

    Have you ever heard of signal to noise ratio in markets? When something is going up, whether it's a commodity or a franchise, it doesn't go up in a straight line. It has fits and starts, goes up like a saw tooth. And every time it hits a drop there are a thousand idiots there to declare it dead. When it recovers and makes a new high, those idiots don't admit they were wrong. Then when it corrects again, they are back with their eulogies.

    The UFC had a big bump with Ronda Rousey and then Conor McGregor. It can't sustain the kind of normie interest that temporary stars bring in forever. But you don't compare something to its best month or best year, you look at the entire trend line. There are even many mathematical models to do this and to see whether an aberration (a big drop or big jump) is likely to be sustainable or not.

    Or, you know, just be another internet retard with no perspective or knowledge coupled with an endless desire to make his opinions known.

    I think the UFC peaked in 2015 with the arrival of Conor blowing up and beating mendes and aldo. It was so high then that fertita brothers knew they had to sell it because it was at it's best. Correct me if I'm wrong here guys. At the same time Jones was still part of the mix. But it has fell off. There's the loss of excitement that they used to have. Events don't have that electric feel any more. Maybe I'm over-thinking it.

    Idk i'm assuming the buyout had something to do with it. If you think about it, since May of 2016 some things got a little more dull.

    Also...I don't think the UFC is going anywhere, I just think it's time to go to the drawing board and look at what used to work. Bring it back to the 2012-2015 era.

    I think part of the problem is the "once in a lifetime, never before historic event"-type fight card we had every two months in 2015-16.

    This bigger than ever-theme quickly loses it's steam.

    It's the short term policy of the WME UFC that is now showing us the consequences.

    Personally however I don't see much of a problem. They should just realize that quality>quantity. I dn't need a constantly growing UFC. I just want to see good fighters fight other good fighters.

    What are you talking about? Compared to when? If you mean that like each ppv has a lower average buy rate or something, it's because there are so many goddamn cards now. 10 years ago 200k buys was considered very successful.
    Again, what the fuck are you talking about?
    We are like 1 year removed from the biggest MMA star we've ever seen ... calm your tits noob. Go back to WWE.
