    but to be honest, from a division stand point and the type of opponents that they can face, the only interesting division

    is lightweight and middle weight. Jon Jones crushes everyone at light heavyweight and Velasquez also crushes everyone at heavyweight.

    all the other champions have no personality, the UFC doesn't build them up, and their opponents have no credibility either.

    I look at the next 5 ufc cards and I simply do not care at all.

    The UFC really dropped the ball on promoting their fighters into people I care about.
    They really need to give a chance for someone to show their strong personality. Someone like mayweather. because the rest of these guys are just not cutting it. I have more fun watching game of thrones and big brother. WWE is more interesting at the moment.

    I don't watch just for the fights, I watch for the characters too. I want to see their dream and aspiration. I want to see what drive them to win. I don't want no cookie cutter fighter that's boring. Unless you can fight like Anderson Silva, then fighting skills is not enough. and the fighting is too generic right now, noone actually has styles. The fighters just have no personality at all.

    not just my opinion. it is a consensus opinion base on the descending interest of casual fans.

    How can you not like Barao? He is one of the most exciting champs. Is it cause you think you can beat him up?

    ironically, Dana has been recorded before saying that he thinks that that's the P4P top 3

    funny how "evolution of the sport" has morphed it, eh? be careful what you wish for, i suppose. and sorry you missed the fun years.

    fact is, the sport has changed since 2003 or so. there were a lot of reasons to like it then, but there are a lot of reasons to dislike OR like the changes since then. you have apparently decided to focus on the negative, but there ARE positives. can you find them? i suggest you figure out some way to enjoy it, or find a new sport. being all anxious and resentful about what you watch is no way to enjoy your time and money. good luck.

    Barao and Aldo don't speak english, its hard to relate to fighters that don't speak your language. Did Fedor have any personality btw?

    Like I've said before, the novelty of the sport has worn off. Any how can you not think the WW division is an interesting division? Look at Hendricks and the six ranked guys behind him. The UFC is stacked with talent, even at the lower weight classes.

    I dunno, I think theres some revisionist history with MMA. Did anyone see 172 and the Brown Silva card? LOADS of good fights, 172 was one of the best events I've ever seen, if not the best, and if the Brown Silva card was a little trimmed down and not 5 hours long it could have been the best also.

    MMA is better than ever, there are a few minor flaws that have come with the growth of the sports (stupid rules, watered down cards) but even with the watered down cards like the Macao event on Fight pass, they can have the best fights, just not big names.

    In my opinion, WW, MW, LW, FW, BW, and LHW are better than they've ever been.
