    i understand there are a lot of title fights so it becomes saturated, but watching the older ufc cards one of the big things that stood out to me is the respect shown to the athletes.

    Having David and the rest of the crew present a gold medal and value the individual for their immense hard work- rather than Joe Rogan spewing the same lines “how do you feel?”

    It was special when there were only 5 weight-class,
    and interim titles didn't exist.
