I personally feel like it hurts it. This may be a terrible example, but if you look at the WWF and the WCW and when they competed it gave the wrestlers at that time a lot more leverage and opportunities. It's hard to believe that if you had two large organizations (think Pride VS UFC) competing against one another that you wouldn't see more super fights (reigning champions from both organizations), better treatment of fighters, and more career opportunities for fighters. When the UFC did buy up WEC and Strikeforce a LOT of those fighters came over and created shockwaves in the UFC, so it's really hard to argue that the UFC having rivals actually hurts this sport? But I think the sport would be so much more entertaining if the UFC had serious competition. Anyone agree or disagree? Thoughts? Opinions?
