Is the UFC scaling back international cards? Do international fighters have to worry?

    It seems the new owners are centering on making money back. Do you think international fighters will start to take a backseat? If the country doesn't pay for PPV's how much money can they really generate if they are not visiting their individual countries? What do you think?

    Whats PPV got to do with it

    Its already been widely reported for the next tv deal in the US UFC are prepared to drop the number of ppv's (numbers i saw reported were to drop ppv's to 8 per year - and instead making tv cards bigger) and instead give broadcasters more for their money as far as cards go

    thats the same system outside of the US. broadcasters are the revenue, not ppv
