    ive seen nfl, nba, mlb and many celebs from different places in ufc events but i've never seen any soccer player attending. Not even in latin america or europe where soccer is 10 times bigger than nfl, nba and mlb combined....

    maybe i missed it, if not i wonder why...

    I think they got offended when Dana said the UFC was neck and neck to soccer

    Soccer isn't a major sport in the US where MMA is most popular.

    They cost to much to be paid off by Dana and Co to attend and be shown on television

    Well, considering the way these guys (are trained to) fake injuries all the time, you'd think they eventually get sensitive to seeing something as real as this. I dunno, shot in the dark.

    The UFC has Great thing going: a bunch of D list athletes who are down as fuck to get the fuck beaten out of themselves for no money. Why would they possibly let true A-level athlete soccer players like Ronaldo who have the world in their hands stunt on the fighters right in front of them. That wouldn't be good for morale would it? Plus it would be demoralizing for the fighters to see Zlatan etc sitting there staring them down and it's understood by both parties that the soccer A-listers could take this peasant belts within 6 months if they wanted to

    Stop thinking soccerplayers are a-level athletes. You named Ronaldo and he is one of the few who you can call a-level.

    Soccer is mainly a game of skill not athleticism.

    One of the best ever...

    I think he is referring to the amount of money they get paid.....skill wise there are tons of soccer players better or as good as Ronaldo.Who is the soccer player in the picture? I recently started watching futbol at 32 years old it truly is the greatest game on earth. English league is the best, shit even started watching tennis....when you got money to gamble with online even that stupid game with the brooms on ice might be fun to watch.
