    Thinking more about it now, the main reason why UFC went to WWE mode was because ppv sales were horrible between 2011-2014 which put the UFCs backs against the wall. They may not have had much of a choice but to make it wwe like in order to create fake fueds which creates interest among casual fans which are those who dictate ppv buys. Hardcore fans don't matter anymore

    UFC is a sporting event, so it's not like WWE, which is a children's show.

    MMA (not just UFC) has always followed alot of the pro wrestling model. They all come down to the same thing. Two guys are fighting,make us want to tune in.

    WWE is for 40 year olds who live at home and weigh 300lbs and children, if you watch wwe, you need to get yourself a life.

    Prowrestling and WWE wasn't always for children. Sometime in the 2000's when they really went to push John Cena and went PG is when it became a childrens show. Cat was out of the bag about prowrestling being fake for a long while at that point. But from the 1970's up until the early 2000's it was presented as legit.
     
  14. Zuffa copied the WWE's business model. This is no big secret.

    The UFC, however, is a real sport. Unlike the male drama show also known as WWE.

    - Emphasis on trash-talk, promos, and hype
    - Villainous boss/authority figure
    - Drama between fighters and management (surprised Dana hasn't done public contract signings yet)
    - Good guys vs. bad guys
    - Announcers told what to say in order to hype certain fighters or spin
    - Angles like backstage altercations, pre- and post-fight drama
    - Fighters getting pushed for their look rather than talent (Paige & Sage)
    - Stables (SBG Ireland, Team Jackson, AKA, etc.)
    - Signature moves
