    For example, a "loser leaves town match" i.e the loser must quit MMA.

    WWE does shit like this, but instead will have a hair vs. hair match, where the loser has to have his head shaved.

    Are there any stipulations or gimmicks you would like attached to MMA fights? I think it would generate fan interest.

    Absolutely.

    Every major PPV should have a main card gimmick fight. Athletes from other sports, rappers, politicians running against each other, YouTube celebrities...it is the perfect arena to settle their beefs. It takes up 1 slot on the main card, which is no big deal, doesn't affect rankings and title picture, and can boost PPV buyrate and attention tremendously.

    A ladder match would be nice.

    I personally would like to have special guest referee matches. Imagine TJ vs. Cody 3, but with Uriah Faber as special guest ref???

    Is it too much to ask for WMMA fights to take place in bikinis and mud?

    Instead of Buff Bagwells mom on a forklift they can put Chiesa's mom and have Chiesa vs. Lee 2.

    I don't think so. I think it would take away the focus from the contender's bracket. Even if a guy doesn't sell, or isn't a big attention getter his ranking should be respected. Guys would talk their way to fights---like WWE.

    Gaethje said he would retire if Vick beat him didn't he? They should have made that a retirement bout! Would have made it even more hilarious when Justin put his lights out.
