We've all seen people in entertainment get promotional pushes based on looks/marketability/talk not based on actual skill level or their craft. I just saw a Paige Van Zant interview where she was asked who she though would win the Ferguson vs Khabib fight, and she honestly sounded like she doesn't even watch the sport. She said that Khabib vs Barboza was the first Khabib fight she's ever seen, and that she still "new to the sport" even though she's been a pro fighter for 6 years now LMAO. UFC/WME wants to create stars so badly but an MMA star is not something you can manufacture- you either are the truth or you aren't, it's black and white. One of the things I love about MMA/combat sports is that the skills speak for themselves, you don't get people shoved down your throat based on "marketability." IDC if buyrates might be down, as long as the best fight the best I will always be drawn to this sport.
