    Are you kidding me?






    Awarding MMA fighters @ the fucking red carpet instead of the normal way.


    WTF, seriously.....This is a horrible way to promote the UFC.


    I guess UFC isn't even neck and neck with women soccer lol.

    Lol, does anyone here believe that mma is bigger than soccer, even women's football.

    Mma is a niche sport which hasn't taken off to the level many expected. It can't compete with soccer, despite Dana's laughable claim years ago.

    The UFC does not treat fighters as professional athletes so why should anybody else?

    Anybody that sides with UFC management against the fighters cant complain about ESPN here.

    Well, winning the World Cup is a great accomplishment. Surprised they could rebound from the 5-2 beatdown put on em by that U15 buys squad.

    Is it?

    They are in a sport with no talent....Most of the women in the world aren't playing soccer....They are busy being oppressed or worrying about real life shit.

    USA Women Soccer Team should check their privilege<BC1>

    Despite its early start time (especially on the West Coast), Sunday’s dramatic showdown between Team USA and the Netherlands in the FIFA Women’s World Cup final drew a massive audience for Fox Sports and Telemundo. Per Nielsen, the American victory was seen by 14 million viewers on the Fox broadcast net, outperforming last year’s men’s World Cup final by more than 20 percent (11.4 million) to rank as the biggest Stateside soccer match since 2015 — the last time the women’s team brought home the trophy. As Ad Age reporter Anthony Crupinoted on Twitter, that 14 million viewer figure beats most of this year’s World Series and NBA Finals games and every edition of ESPN’s Monday Night Football — an amazing feat given the match aired on a Sunday morning during a holiday weekend, with West Coast viewers having to get up by 8 a.m. to watch.

    The final drew more viewers than the NBA Finals and Monday Night Football. Women's soccer isnt huge globally yet, but it's a powerhouse in the US. And way more popular than MMA both nationally and abroad.

    MMA can't even match PGA viewership- and that's WITHOUT Tiger. With Tiger competing they double their ratings and UFC isnt even in the conversation.

    To give you an idea of how far down the list UFC is- NASCAR is panicking right now as everyone declares it dying, yet its ratings are still higher than UFC's free TV cards. lol. UFC is on par with minor league baseball at best.

    Red Carpet awards are a norm at all major awards shows.

    To be fair far more people want to have sex with female soccer players then mma fighters. Sex sells. This was a business decision.

    ESPN was right.
