    Never met the guy, nor do I wish to. However there are few human beings I despise more than the red goof.

    I wondered what he meant by this. Maybe more shows like TUF, contender series.

    I could see them doing a VR Ref head cam and cage post cams in the future.

    Dana said the future of fighting, not the future of the UFC. It sounds like he is going to introduce a new combat sport. He wanted to create Zuffa boxing recently and there is a ton of money in that sport so it seems logical that he would be working to create a sport that could attract boxing talent.

    I think that it will be something like bare knuckle boxing but with mma sized gloves and some inclusion of mma rules. They will probably allow everything from boxing and muay thai as well as dirty boxing/clinch fighting. Maybe they will allow throws as well but I have to think they will impose the most limits on ground fighting. Maybe they would allow standing submissions but I could see them getting rid of the rest. Grappling would still be allowed in MMA, but this alternative sport is likely focusing primarily on striking. The ring/cage will likely be smaller to focus more action packed fights and appease the just bleed gods.

    A tournament format would be great but I don't know if that will be the focus.

    Honestly it will probably be something like Big Knockout Boxing but will all mma striking allowed, all throws allowed, standing submissions but no ground fighting.

    Is Reebok deal almost over? If so he's probably going to announce New Balance deal, now with 50% more useless shit for fighters and 50% less money paid out!
