    Is anybody else missing the original style and size matchups in mma? It was awesome to see how to different martial arts compare to eachother, but now every fighter knows all martial arts needed to compete (which is logical and also nice to see). But if a new fighting organisation would start which puts the best fighters of different martial arts against eachother would you watch? It would bring the freakshow aspect of the original UFC back, but with known names. Imagine just one show a year, but the best fighters in each sport vs eachother. (Patented)

    Imagine Anthony Joshua vs Rico Verhoeven, or Buakaw vs Golovkin...

    (Also feel free to put some imaginary matchups down here including there styles)
