    People are just coming in to some boring bgm and doing nothing, why aren't more fighters capitalizing on the opportunity to pull something really crazy and help their marketability?

    Dana doesn't like them and wouldn't let them do anything until very recently and only if they get permission. Remember the big stink with Mayhem trying to do something? And not letting Rony Jason where his mask out?

    Gotta have UFC approval for any and everything involving your entrance.

    Shit, should've guessed. If they (DW) would allow some freedom during walk-ins I think it could really help some of the lesser known UFC fighters. They could do some goofy and funny stuff and more people would be interested. I don't understand what's the downside of this.

    The UFC wants to be taken seriously. That's why they cut top 5 fighters, throw title shots + tons of money at guys who are losing streaks, and, of course, don't encourage entertaining entrances.

    Entertaining entrances that could help give that little extra push to a fighter's popularity.

    Damn you entertaining entrances!

    Which is why they just cut a perennial top 5 fighter, Dana constantly complains about boring fights, the sport has ref breaks, Chael Sonnen got a LHW title shot, and etc.

    Got to have that UFC approval for anything out of the ordinary with your walkouts.
