Is the UFC doomed now that the Liberal Hollywood Elite control it?

    We shouldn't be surprised when we start seeing participation belts, a "people of color" division, a transgender division, only Liberal fighters getting pushes, and trigger warnings on UFC cards. They'll probably make fighters start apologizing to each other after fights with a big "THESE FIGHTERS DO NOT ACTUALLY HATE EACH OTHER" scrolling across the screen.

    Another downside, SJWs now have direct access to a combat sport and WME will more than likely start bowing to their demands. "Michael Bisping isn't diverse or progressive enough, we need a different MW champion!" On top of all the schmaltzy Hollywood bullshit that will start infecting MMA, the political side is going to get far more annoying.

    Thoughts?

    No, it will be fine. On the plus side maybe they'll get rid of that stupid fucking 'Bring the Pain' 90s numetal song that they still inexplicably use.

    For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. If they want to turn UFC into sesame street it will open the door for another organization to do a better job of representing the spirit of MMA and giving the fans what they want to see. They will also suffer the wrath of the Just Bleed God's.

    Also, world series of fighting is associated with nbc sports, which is under the same umbrella as msnbc and I haven't noticed any nefarious leftist social engineering being pushed over there, or at least any more than any other mma org.

    So the idea is that propoganda can infiltrate the sport?

    i have a really hard time concepting an idea how you can get a political message across a (somewhat brutal) combat sport without appearing obvious in your intentions (and therefore more open to scrutiny)

    and also what kind of voting base you would be catering to. combat is the antipolitic. combat oriented groups are the last people you would want to spend effort in swaying.

    heres an analysis from scarborough research showing leftright lean and turnout. ufc and extreme sports being on the low end

    So when all these crazy predictions fail to pan out, will you just forget you made them and make similarly bad predictions again in the future? I'm guessing yes.

    there is more to hollywood than the snowflakes. in the end, the corporate side of it are the greatest purveyors of resurrected ancient coliseum blood-lust than anyone in the world. The UFC will only become more bloody under Hollywood, not less

    Yes.

    UFC: Maybe spin off the women's fighting snooze-a-thons into it's own business?

    Be interesting to see how long they'd stick around.

    In its absence maybe they could introduce an under-21 pro-am division?

    never really cared for women fighting in competition

    Knowing Hollywood, theu will definitely try to use the UFC for propaganda and it will kill the company
