    The UFC as a product and a brand doesnt sell anymore.

    If they want to sell PPVs they'll have to put an effort and promote the fighters.

    meh. Is it outdated? Seems to be fine in boxing.

    How about the UFC promote there fighters so people actually give a shit about the fights?

    I still don't believe the card did that bad. All ufc cards used to do 200k buys from the UFC name alone because of sports bars buying and hardcore fans and stuff.

    Maybe when the sport was the new fad. 06-13.

    But now? Listen man. I will always be watching mma no matter what. But its relatively obvious that this is gonna be the norm for the sports ppv's at least for the foreseeable future.

    The UFC seems completely incapable of promoting these guys. Thats why these numbers have been shit this year. and last year.

    You HAVE to make people care about these guys or the casuals are not going to watch. That simple

    You go on fight pass and they have documentaries promoting nick Diaz and chuck Liddell and then wonder why no one is buying modern day ppvs, no one knows who most of the fighters are anymore.

    I used to host parties at my house every ppv with over 30 people attending and slowly but surely my friends stopped showing up. So a small group of friends that were still into mma would meet at Buffalo Wings & Rings to watch the fights and over the course of a year it dwindled down to just myself. All my friends who were once hardcore mma fans were not watching mma at all except for a few major headliners. Now BWR doesn’t even show the fights anymore

    Promoting costs money and WME-IMG are in the business of turning a quick profit.

    Maybe, maybe not!! Just stating that it was a good card. Unlike other cards that really don’t produce this much buzz!
