    When this arrives (and fails in a few years)

    Should it be called zuffa boxing or ultimate boxing championship?

    UBC would make more sense.

    Zuffa Boxing sounds stupid.

    And yes, this is a terrible idea. Instead of venturing into a dying sport, they should try to save the dwindling sport they're in.

    Zuffa boxing since it's under that umbrella, and has nothing to do with MMA.

    I prefer Zuffa Boxing but both sound retarded. UBC also sounds like a news channel or university.

    You would think they'd rather try and get an mma fighter to get a win over Conor so they could market them
    but WME needs the $ i am guessing are too dumb and cant see the future, then again they did buy the ufc for 4 billion so probably don't think it's on a decline

    I have a feeling Dana is slowly moving away from the sport of MMA and into the sport of boxing. they realize that the grappling factor makes MMA unappealing to casuals.

    heres dana's mindset:
    boxing tends to be boring because dudes just fight to decision these days. Dana and Zuffa want to implement the system they did for the UFC: pay fighters more for KO of the night/fight of the night, so the boxers will be more inclined to finish.

    I think you're over complicating it.

    Dana wants in on boxing because that's where the huge money is.
