    They're not out yet but - looking at that card, if it did more than 300k buys - I'll eat a fucking sneaker.

    Every ship needs a good captain - and now that Lorenzo has departed - this ship is in hella stormy waters.

    I think Duane Ludwig said it best: "An entertainment company trying to run a fight company".

    What is its future?

    Good question.

    The return of McGregor - you can be sure PPV numbers will skyrocket for that fight - but beyond that - what do?

    I cannot fathom they actually marketed that card as PPV.
    To me, it's not much more than a fight night card.

    I think what Lorenzo understood best - that WME don't, and Dana definitely doesn't - is that, you can't build a card on talent.

    It takes talent - but it also takes - character.

    Dillashaw was the only solid draw on that card.
