    Been a fight fan since before there was a UFC. Now it's being called sports entertainment? It's fighting! And now the Rebock mess. Never thought I'd abandon the UFC, but is Bellator the future new king? Please no more Kimbo/Ken fights Mr. Coker, just get them fighters coming your way.

    Are you kidding me...Has it not changed but for the worse recently? It is not about the best fighters anymore. But who can sell a fight. Ask Rorion Gracie what he thinks.

    Where have you been. It's always been about who can sell a fight. Always will be. That's not even a bad thing. Usually who can sell a fight will be the best fighters.

    are you joking? you rarely see guys trying to sell a prelim fight. having the main event hype a fight helps out everyone. Lets not pretend like they grabbed a couple clowns off the street to "sell the fight" and its one giant freakshow now. ufc still has the best fighters, if they didn't i wouldn't really care about it.

    oh jesus christ. should hughes have fought a third rate royce gracie? should tito have fought shamrock three times? should couture have fought brock or nog or big timmy? should chael have fought silva or jones? should belfort have fought jones? should conor have gotten a title shot after beating dennis siver?

    ^^^all examples of match-making that had more to do with dollars than rankings. but you know what? i don't give a shit. it's a real competition even if fans cry about the lack of scientific rankings or whatever dumb ass thing they think is missing from deciding on matchups. i don't have time to cry about sports, so go ahead and pick up my slack.

  19. Reebok mess? I don't see how that is gonna affect me as a fan.

    Also, that guy who called you Tito has a good point.

    I agree that nowdays UFC is more business...but i dont know anyone calling it sports entertainment yet...maybe u got confused about WWE?? Bellator is doing good in its own rights but i dont see them being the premium brand anytime soon
