    I think this is a no brainer. Every major sport has players “mic’ed up” during games to give fans an inside look. So how about microphones (or better ones) in the octagon to better capture the sounds of the fight plus interaction between the fighters?

    Even more importantly, actually hearing the impact of strikes would give people a whole new appreciation of the sport. Back in the Pride era for example, crowds were quieter during fights and it really made a difference. I’ll never forget how Crocop’s kicks sounded. Even today in ONE Championship I like how you can hear the action over the crowd.

    I think this is a great idea, am I wrong? Let me know...

    -Hire Lenne, Mauro, Quadros, and Bas
    -Ref cams
    -Soccer kicks and stomps
    -Yellow cards
    -Ring
    -10-5-5 rounds

    That's a good start.

    Totally, I don't know why they haven't done this already. Tbf, it's hard to dial up the theatrics for the viewers at home when you're fighting, as opposed to shooting hoops or something where they can ham it up. Let's also steal "all star weekend " and "players unions" from the big league sports

    I like the idea.

    We should implant mics and cameras in their mouth pieces so we can see and hear the impact of KO's better. And nipples should be pierced with additional mic/camera and biometric sensors attached that measure heart rate and other cool stats.

    Not bad.

    Wouldn't mind sensors on fighters and viewers, that way, whenever Ngannou punches someone, we feel it too.

    - more stats and better analysis on TV
    - More all around Interviews and promos that dont look worse like some YouTube compilation
    - change of the ruleset
    - better scoring system
    - better matchmaking --> this is huge for me since a lot of the excitement gets lost in bouts where the outcome is pretty predictable. Also fighter often fight way to less and the rankings matter too much imo (why not book a hot prospect against a top 5 guy when noone else wants to fight?)

    -Tournaments !!!
