    When marketing eclipsed actual fighting talent and prestige. Truly dark days

    People can hate all they want but they were exciting fighters who brought excitement and eyes to cards.

    True words. Conor and Ronda were considered elite top 5 fighters for exactly 4 years of their careers. I can name two dozen fighters off the top of my head that were top 5 fighters for way longer than that.

    Dark days and down hill... You guys are a bunch of idiots. You still watch religiously you just bitch and moan more now. UFC is branching out to areas all over the world like never before. UFC is worth about $7,000,000,000 and fighters are at least starting to make more than they ever have.

    UFC won't be filing for bankruptcy anytime soon haters

    They used illegal and unethical methods. It's been documented over the years.

    MMA's finally regaining some credibility. Will be a while before the sport's respected like it was before those two clowns showed up.
