    - Dana White
    - The 3-point stance rule
    - Wmma/Mmma mixed cards (if they want to have wmma that's fine just put it on cards that are entirely wmma)

    2. 125 division (and merge BW and FW into a 140 lb division)
    3. Weight cutting

    1. Judging that places too much emphasis on TDs that don't lead to any kind of sub attempts or any kind of fight control following the TDs

    2. WMMA fighters who can't fight Ronda and not make it look like a kid at recess fighting for the very first time.

    3. Spreading out important fights over so many cards that fans typically find maybe 2-3 fights per card at most to get genuinely excited about.

    You are gonna have to explain those first three. What justification is there to cut MacDonald, Davis and Nurmagomedov? How exactly do you think these boards would react if it was announced tomorrow that all three of them were cut? Do don't think it would be majority approval, do you?

    Homogenuous bland ring girls with no booty. The babe that Mo brought to the Bellator weigh in last night made the ring girls look so plain and boyish.

    Dana as President. He must still be involved of course, but should take a step back. His bullying and favouritism and idiotic rants have gone too far now. The way he treated GSP was awful, as was his recent impression of Cyborg and his unproductive and amateurish squabbles with fighter managers.

    Mike Goldberg obviously, and the current gloves which permit eyepokes too easily.

    1. Cutting high level fighters and hiring low level brawlers

    2. Hyping things that most MMA fans don't give a Fuck about (rivalries, Rousey, this or that fighter who in actuality are quite mediocre)

    3. Start being consistent with your policies.
