    MMA is definitely a show. No way this is a sport. It's closer to the WWE than to a regular sport, where rankings are objective. It's all about money fights. And even the fighters can decide who will be their next opponent: just need a couple of tweets. ¿The belt? Yeah, it would turn you into an instant, natural money fight. That's why it's relevant.

    McGregor Vs Cerrone? An almost retired fighter against a fighter that should retire. I can't care less. Hope it's a double KO.

    Thanks for the original post about something that's never been expressed or discussed.

    Good to see people aren't just posting the same shit everyday.

    I don't remember it ever being legit.

    Brock Lesnar gets a title shot with a 1-1 record. And a 2-1 career record.

    Randy Couture vs James Toney

    Boring fighters getting cut after 2 losses (if even) whilst KO artists can lose 4 in a row and still stay in the UFC.

    CM Punk

    BMF Belt

    Trading MM for Ben Asscream

    Dana vs Tito boxing

    People take dives in all sports. Football. Soccer, Hockey. Basketball. Rugby. Track & Field. All of them.

    They're actually more competent than UFC refs. Which is funny and sad at the same time.
