The biggest draws in combat sports happen because someone told people a fighter or thing was popular before it actually was. Dana White just promoting like Dana White does
Also he's not completely wrong, not among hardcores, but lots of people care about Holly Holm and Rousey more than any fighter not named Conor. PVZ and Watterson just drew really good numbers on Fox
And MMA is bigger than soccer
according to Dana.
agree. Hardcores don't matter when it comes to PPV buys. We like to think the sport caters to us, but we really don't matter in the grand scheme of things.
Prove it, and start putting WMMA on their own cards.
The UFC always follows the money.
You don't put women headliners on more than 50% of cards for a stretch if your numbers aren't telling you that's good business.
Is Dana the worst promoter ever?
Every time wmma gets a little traction along comes Dana to say something [email protected] stupid to make every1 hate it.
Women's MMA = Ronda
Men's MMA = Conor
Dana has always been preferential of Ronda at the expense of Conor whenever he has the opportunity. He keeps taking such sly digs at Conor. It kind of reminds of Sepp Blatter and Messi / Ronaldo.
In reality, Conor is way bigger than Ronda. Ronda is one fight away from becoming a has-been. She will be executed by Amanda Nunes next week xD !
There's a greater disparity in skill between WMMA and MMA than in other sports. There's plenty of women who play basketball and tennis, while in WMMA you can barely find 100 women worldwide that are training MMA professionally.
I agree with that, as hardcore fans can only get you so far, but to be more mainstream, it's the casual/crossover fans which help a ton.
No it isn't. Moving on...
As far as mainstream media attention no one really gets close to Ronda. Like it or not. Other than her though? Not really. As a whole men's MMA is clearly bigger, but Ronda is still a huge draw.
He's right, that's why Invicta is so big.
Thorough analysis. Because there aren't an equally larger number of men who play basketball, football, soccer, etc. than women. And get compensated way more in every other major sport.
Television ratings suggest so...
But then again there's a much much bigger talent pool (not even comparable) in mens mma and Conor is the biggest draw. Aside from him it's cloudy situation though...I mean stacked card could beat those last wmma ratings but there would need to be multiple title fights or just Khabib/Ferguson level ones.
Edit. oh he said bigger not more drawing /popular...
move along people nothing to see here.....
He is superb. Idiocies or not.
