    Best: Any promotion that tries to be more than an "MMA promotion" Ganryujima is probably the best I have seen because every fight tells a unique story there

    Worst: Any promotion that tries to just be an MMA promotion, THE UFC is the largest of these therefore the worst

    Best - UFC and Pride, I guess, though both have had their moments of questionable ethics. I also liked the IFL, Cage Rage, MFC, ROTR...those promotions that know they are feeder leagues but provide legit opportunities for fighters to work their way up.

    Worst - KSW pulled some shiesty bullshit with Pudz vs James Thompson. EliteXC were also some shisters. And I have to question any promotion that paid Bob Sapp to fight during his diving streak.

    Best : Zuffa-WEC and Bjorn Bellator were probably my favorite promotions. WEC had some great fights, I can't really name a bad event from them. Bjorn Bellator was a concept that I enjoyed a lot. The tournaments resulted in plenty of good matches. The consensus is obviously the UFC and Pride, you can't get much better than those.

    Worst:
    - KSW for straight-up corruption issues and I just honestly find it extremely overrated.
    - YAMMA Pit Fighting belongs here too because it was just...........stupid.
    - I also don't like One FC, I get that it's not THAT bad but I just don't like how often they cancel events and how rarely their champions ever fight.

    Nailed it, I miss cage rage and ROTR. Wanted to add Tachi Palace Fights, Icon Sport, and Rings going way back.

    Worst MMA promotion, and there are a lot of bad ones, has to be Vennator FC.


    Shit, forgot to mention Strike force, definitely my favorite.

    Best: Hard to pick just one, I really like Bellator first years, Strikeforce last years, Pride Tournaments, UFC new era and WEC overall

    Worst: Probably Xplode MMA soccer mum vs McFarlane and some other missmatches)

    Truth is, sometimes there's a very fine line between "best" and "worst".
