    Exactly, people don't realize how much money the Chinese are throwing around.

    Chinese New Year is when Las Vegas makes MOST of it's money, these dudes love to just fly in and drop massive stacks during that month. It outshadows every other holiday.

    Bloody Elbow made a great article about how sketchy OneFC's revenue truly is...

    I realise there is massive amounts of cash floating around in Asia, but surely investors have to see a business model that makes some fucking sense? ONE doesn't have that, not that I can discern at least. This is why so many people suspect criminality/corruption - whether in terms of the financing or the ultimate goal of the business - and remain deeply sceptical of the whole thing.

    Something doesn't smell right when it comes to ONE.

    Yea but they're like half the size of a normal person so it's really only 2.2 billion.

    There's definitely something suspect going on but I'm happy for the fighters getting paid.

    It's propped up by the gambling industry and there is also a shit ton of "new money" in that region that is looking to invest in anything that sounds cool.

    The Chinese business model is also a bit different than an American one. If your business fails, it's much easier to just flip it with a new name and carry over a ton of assets without as much public scrutiny as you would see in a Western market.

    Just think of how Pride was run, but now imagine way less regulations and a much larger gambling market to fund it.

    Not sure if trolling or retarded.

    Bodog founder Calvin Ayre is a billionaire today, and is currently making his riches in Bitcoin.

    Not sure if unperceptive or idiotic.

    MMA slowly turning into boxing. WME shedding talented fighters that don't draw and keeping the exciting fighters. In the future, expect cross promotion bouts where profit sharing is thrown into contracts.
