    Hour long Dana White scrums before and after events.
    Ariel interviews with the fighters before and after events.
    Ariel interview with Dana before and after events.
    Joe Rogan commentating on every event.

    Good times. Didn't appreciate it enough at the time.

    We all do.

    Although I have come to appreciate having a little less DW in my life.

    But yes, the time is now... Ugh...

    Speak for yourself. Sherdoggers want fewer fights and someone to hate. So it's more Dana White and less fighters.

    Don't miss Dana that much tbh aside from the occasional derps. His F bombs took away from the UFC.

    Wait, what? You miss the old UFC, because it had more Rogan, Helwani, and Dana?

    Not sure if serious.

    I miss loaded cards. I would love it if they could have as many fights as they do now but that each card were loaded. And get Bas in there instead of Goldie. He'd tell Rogan to calm down and school him on striking.

    I miss my enthusiasm for MMA. Too much bullshit these days. It's more about what's happening before and after the fight than during.

    i liked it a lot more and stayed more interested when there was roughly like a ppv a month and the cards were more than one or two good fights, way to many events now. i honestly cant get interested in fights anymore unless its a big main event type fight. it was kinda nice looking forward to the next event anyways and that anticipation is gone.

    Less Dana White and less watered down card would be like paradise.

    Back in the days (5-6 yo ago), we had like 10-12 events every year. Each PPV was STACKED, it was an happening, something we were waiting for. (I actually bought PPVs at that time)

    Now? There's like 60 events scheduled for 2015. The rarity is gone, the superstars are gone (there's JJ, and that's it)
