    I feel like it'd be cool if the UFC had their own version of an all star weekend every year.

    Maybe the best, most popular MMA fighters could participate and they could have some fun games and challenges throughout the weekend and then a big fight on Sunday.

    Just throwing things out there, but maybe they could have that punching machine to see who hits the hardest, fans could try and take a fighter down, idk there's probably cool shit they could come up with.

    Would you enjoy something like this? A UFC All Star Weekend

    Actually a cool idea, maybe offer some payment incentives for the winners.

    A Jiu-Jitsu tourney would be fun, it just sucks that guys can get seriously injured and probably wouldn’t wanna participate.

    Invite the top 5-10 fighters from every division, maybe half of them show up and you have enough star power and participants to do some cool challenges.

    They offered them 50% coupons to take home to their spouses the last time they did this.

    It was called The Fighter Retreat/Summit or some shit.

    They could have a punching power machine contest

    Could also have HWs/LHWs/MWs compete in a dwarf tossing contest using the manlets

    WMMA fighters could have a sandwich making contest

    That is what crossfit is for.

    More obligations for fighters that should be training or have to work because the Pay is piss poor in the UFC.

    Maybe when the fighters start getting compensated like the other legit sports orgs then they can demand more of the fighters time and effort.

    Somethings just don't equate the same fro sport to sport. Sure team sports people want to see the stars together in games and other contests. It works for NBA, MLB and hockey but not so well with NFL with it being at the end of the season Super Bowl time. I'm not sure what contests would even generate enough interest for them to participate and as for the Int Fight Week cards it all started out great but has been tweaked a good bit.

    -Bench Press

    -Brick Breaking/Karate exhibition shit(ie: kicking a pad that gets higher in the air for each attempt. Like a dunk contest)

    -Openweight BJJ

    -Pair Heavyweights and manlets for the game they did on TUF 5 where the one fighter stands up and the other guy swims around from his back to his chest as many times as they can before they drop. Or inside a time limit.

    -Manikin destruction. Picture the bud light shoot where Conor, Cain, and Ronda were knocking the heads off manikins. But with multiple manikins spread around the cage like the NBA Skills Comp.

    If athletes In other sports participate and injury themselves themselves they are still set for life with their millions.

    UFC fighters not so much
