    Is that Michel Pereira earned a co-main event by doing Tekken 3 moves and dance entrances, without actually knowing how to fight

    Come on, there is way bigger proof than that.
    Most MMA fans grew up watching wrestling, I was a big fan back in the 90s, you just grow out of it with age and MMA is the logical step up in "Sports Entertainment".

    I haven't logged in here in almost a year and did so just to comment on this being so true it was almost painful.

    It is a logical step towards being more mainstream and globalization IMO.

    MMA itself is an evolition of Pro Wrestling
    UFC in particular has modeled itself off WWE for the past 20 years. Sorry you are just now realizing that.

    I agree that it's a step up but I don't know if it has anything to do with logic but rather simply preference. Almost everyone I know in my age range grew up watching wrestling. Not many of them really watch much MMA though.

    But fans need to stop being so insecure. No matter how you slice it is the entertainment business. And I watch MMA to be entertained. So yes give me the trash talk, give me the flashy walkouts, give me the bad blood. Of course we still need our humble, quiet guys too. I also enjoy the respect, the emotion, the journey of being an Ultimate fighter.

    Fuck you insecure fans so worried about the WWE.

    Dana White froze the Knicks card during the 85 draft.
