    Think Dana hasn’t given up with Zuffa boxing yet even though hes been struggling with it. Dana will probably try a mega event for first one with crossovers. Headlined by floyd against either conor again with different fight rules or khabib.
    Co main event will be anderson silva against a good but retired boxer.

    I can realistically see something like this happening and of course it selling well because of the big names.


    What are you thoughts on this and Danas attempt at creating a boxing promotion?

    What exactly was Zuffa boxing? An organization within the sport? Or do all Zuffa guys fight each other and don’t fight guys from other promotions?

    Completely separate promotion run by Dana under Zuffa llc(which UFC is under). Hes been working on it for a while. He said he had big news soon on it but walked back on it. Maybe a person he thought he had a deal with pulled out last minute?

    Danas always loved boxing, dont think he will give up that easy on making a boxing promotion

    Even if he does something, the odds of it being significant are small. It's more likely to be an addition to Fight Pass on a smaller scale. In reality, a nothing burger.

    Who’d want to watch that? He’ll have to go find talent and make them fight for peanuts?

    Could it be a nothing taco, or a nothing sandwich?

    I know right, its not like Dana and his partners are responsible for building a multi billion dollar fight league or anything like that lol. If Dana does this, he is going to go big for its first event. He knows how to promote big events so I dont see him having an issue with that. Problem is actually signing the boxing talent I think

    Dana did that in the a sport that barely existed.

    He has no chance of doing that In Boxing when you have guys with Haymon, Arum, Mauricio Suliaman, Stephen Espinoza, etc etc etc all pulling one string or another. That’s to name a few out of a long list of guys with massive influence on the sport.

    Best he can hope for is be another player in an incredibly saturated market.

    There has to be some winnable fights for UFC guys if there are crossover fights... putting Floyd in there to humiliate Conor or Khabib wouldn’t be that cool and would drain their market value, unless Dana wants to juice these guys for all they are worth right now.

    Are boxers really struggling for fight opportunities? I get the impression theres already more than enough promotions.. I could be wrong.

    You say Dana 4 times in what you think is a clever post. You don't really know what his job has been since became president of the UFC do you?

    I don't agree, I don't see what you are saying happening. The reason for Zuffa boxing is the same reason Oscar tried MMA. They both hate each other and they are both greedy businessmen. They would love to eat into each other's business. It's how rich businessmen who hate each other act.

    Exactly why it won’t be successful.
