    Do you think MMA will move towards a boxing-model -- where promotions don't really matter and it's all about a few, top-level stars?

    PFL is attracting fewer viewers than WSOF did... pretty bad sign right there.

    200,000 people in America and "5 million" worldwide watched the championship. I use quotes because it seems like a stretch, although there were finalists from Brazil, Russia and other countries, so it's entirely possible.

    I don't think many Russians watch at 5 in the morning.

    Also, Facebook counts views just if you scroll through the post. So they're probably just counting those.

    If GSP wanted it, it's easily GSP. Beings he doesn't, it's Colby.

    The Fedor thing was when DC won the HW Championship and they displayed the longest HW winning-streak in Pride/UFC/Strikeforce

    I'm 100% sure that the graph was done by an intern. It's the only explenation<45>

    Yeah, it was probably after the Derricks fight.

    I can't understand why anyone would want Colby or Usman to be champ - they're like Jon Fitch with a microphone...

    Anyone but those two.

    Fuck it... Let Till beat Colby then let Till have another go.

    I voted for Colby - though I don’t like his hateful rhetoric, he earned his shot
