    I think Sherdog is the place UFC should turn to for these ideas.

    Cool stuff like vitor doing the punch machine vs Chuck

    or some of the new talent playing games like ninja warrior shit. That would be fun.

    WMMA could have a twerking competition. After that they could have a bake off.

    Not a bad idea.

    Anything open weight class wouldn't be approved, maybe for grappling.

    An "NFL Combine" type athletic event could be interesting. Top MMA fighters competing against each other in events such as 100m sprint, 5000m or 10000m race, 4x4 relay-races with one fighter from each division.

    But, this is definitely hard-core thing. Casuals wouldn't give the slightest fuck about these kind of events.

    Artie Lange had a great bit about that. To paraphrase (and adjust for an mma forum):

    Spelling Bee. Which would you rather see, fighters hitting the punch machine or Mike Perry trying to spell the word "RECEIPT" ???

    Fans taking turns decking them in the face and they can judge which fan hit them the hardest?

    The more I picture it the more bad ass it could really be. Maybe even fun little exhibition matches ? Or we could do quintet teams for champs. Team khabib vs team Usman vs team stipe ect.

    Izzy will dominate any and all skill challenges haha

    I'd bring back some of the old UFC legends, bring Kung Fu masters like Tank Abbott in and they can teach some of the new talent Kung Fu moves and tactics. Too much bro science garbage and robotic fighting these days, we need to see some natural art froms like Kung Fu on show for fight week by Tank

    All the heavyweights should take turns throwing John Dodson down a padded hallway. See who can throw him the farthest distance

    yeah, thats more for journalists and hardcores. They need goofy-ass shit for people watching ESPN.

    The Slam Dunk Contest and Home Run Derby have always been the premiere All-Star Weekend events for their respective sports. The MMA version of a Slam Dunk or Home Run is a KO. In Slam Dunk Contest and Home Run Derby, the players generally have another player, coach, or celebrity assist them by pitching to them or passing them the ball or something for the easy crush. The MMA version of this would essentially be Mike Winkeljohn standing in front of Jon Jones holding his chin up while Jon measures out and executes a brutal kick or punch. Sounds great to me!

    The fighters can get their blood drawn. They can put the blood into a computer that has AI which generates matchups.

    Then whomever gets chosen will weigh in and fight the next day
