    1. Not a single dominant champion

    2. Not a single champion that is unanimously looked at as the best in their weightclass

    3. "Money" and Novelty fights have completely surpassed legit contender fights in importance

    4. 2 of the best 3 UFC Fighters in history have been busted for PEDs in the past 2 years

    5. The other 1 of the 3 Best UFC Fighters in history left and is still sidelined due to being disrespected by the company and rampant unpunished PED usage in the sport.

    6. The only real PPV attractions are Conor McGregor and Ronda Rousey (Enough Said).

    I'm sure there are many other points to make, but this HAS TO be the absolute worst the sport has ever been since before the Ultimate Fighter I.

    No?

    I'd say the dark ages was when the only way to watch it was bootleg VHS tapes, but what the fuck do I know?

    Do you think it's a coincidence Zuffa sold when they did?

    All of the negatives you said is still outweighed by the fact that Ronda is gone.


    That period of MMA was by far the worst.

    zuffa actually went in to the usada labs and fucked with all the samples that have had issues. jons, machidas, mirs all those cats. they were actually clean but zuffa was like 'fuck it, we selling. not our business now' and all those banned substances were injected into the previously clean samples submitted by the fighters.

    zuffa is fucking with wme-img.
