    Yes ESPN sucks. Yes ESPN will attract more clueless casuals.

    However, there is no denying that the UFC can really gain new market share off this deal, and grow as a company all together.

    This is a first step to becoming a powerhouse sport and bigger than soccer.... Which is great because i want the UFC to have enough money to at least ATTRACT TALENT, something soccer has been doing for decades. I want kids to look up to Jon Jones, and dream of becoming what Jones became.

    Cant wait for UFC on ESPN!

    IT IS TIME!

    JUST BLEED!

    It's not good at all.

    It will cripple personalities, make feuds more manufactured, it'll integrate more and more rules and produce EVEN MORE early stoppages which will just be spitting on the sport.

    Fuck ESPN and Disney.

    Relax holmes, it's not that bad. And if it IS that bad, there's plenty of other promotions looking to step up.

    I've been around since the beginning so with all due respect, suck my balls.

    I want UFC to be a legit sport and just fyi everyone is "relaxed" on the internet. We're sitting and typing for fuck sake.

    This is something that I have wondered:

    Are fights more likely to be stopped earlier if a fight card is on free TV rather than PPV?

    They need to find a new format of TUF / show and hope it catches on. . . What that would be, I have no idea

    Again, a good point.

    Will ESPN have a say on who is signed/cut?

    Heck, will they even have a say as to who will be on next month's card?

    If I'm paying that much money, you will be sure that I will express my opinion if my "free cards" are constantly being headlined by a couple of journeymen that few people have heard about.

    Wait until the politically correct Crowd,the kind of public pos modern ESPN supports,reclaim rights for transsexuals fighters to dispute for belts and ask to cut the ring girls.

    WME will fuck this up.

    Introduce the sport to a new audience by bringing in new coaches that are experts in the respective disciplines:

    Wrestling - Pay Cael Sanderson money to teach takedowns for six weeks. Jordan Burroughs/Helen Maroulis is a guest coach one episode.
    Boxing - Pay Freddie Roach money to teach a decent combination. Ann Wolfe is a guest coach one episode.
    BJJ - Pay Marcelo Garcia money to teach subs and sub defense. Royce Gracie is a guest coach one episode.
    MMA - Pay Rich Franklin money to fill in the gaps to make them more well rounded. Any current UFC champ can guest coach one episode.


    Stop using the show to promote the "coaches's" upcoming PPV. Rather, use the show to re-introduce the sport to the public.
