    There was plenty to criticize the old owners for, but the new owners are much worse.

    Remember Zuffa largely gave those bad title shots when options were very thin. That’s how you get Paul Buentello title shot. There often weren’t many options. Yes some shots were BS (Randy at times, Brock) but others they just had no good options.

    Now, BS shots are rampant when there are clear worthy contenders.

    Might have a point there but from his body language and comments leading to that fight, it was clear he had other things on his mind.

    I agree with you about the Zuffa days. They were not perfect. Nick Diaz getting a title shot against GSP was a complete joke. The Couture-Tony fight was a freak show. Unless I'm mistaken, however, the Zuffa's still owned the UFC when they began cracking down on performing enhancing drugs. Whatever.

    But, these days, it seems like these things are happening more and more lately. I won't bother going into Conor McGregor and all the stuff they let him get away with.

    Nah, Lesnar got a title shot when Werdum was there and had been promised one and Nog was the interim champ, Serra got a title shot when Fitch was 4-0 in the UFC with good wins, Hughes fought Royce rather than rematching GSP who was on a strong run, Tito ducked Chuck for years, etc.

    The issue is really that a lot of the fanbase became emotionally invested in Zuffa even moreso than the UFC. I think that's actually a problem WME didn't forsee, for a significant part of the fanbase part of the attraction was feeling part of the story of Dana and the Feritta's business success.

    I mentioned how some shots were BS, and specifically noted Lesnar.

    But I do think the frequency of BS shots has increased. They were always there, but are now so rampant they’re almost more the norm than the exception.

    Say what you want but Zuffa ran a tight ship.






    He said sarcastically.

    Bisping fucked up by motioning for his mouthguard instead of continuing to fight, then the ref fucked up by being indecisive about the mouthguard leaving the opening for the knee and then Anderson fucked up by not continuing to finish.

    It's was a total comedy of errors.

    Let's not blame Luke Rockhold. The blame lies with the city of Montreal. If they had never hired GSP as a garbage man he never would have been able to afford his early training. He would have never made it to the UFC in the first place.

    If we really want to go back we can blame the French for colonizing eastern Canada.
