    It seems to me that the role of the matchmaker is useless in today's UFC. Fighters are picking their own opponents, fighters demanding more money than their current contract requires (not a bash) depending on opponent, constant injuries outside of the octogon that eliminate matches that should be made, and the irrelevance of the rankings at this point.

    They know promotion better than anyone in Zuffa, selling "talent" to Hollywood isn't easy, its certainly not easier than selling "just bleed" to hillbillies

    never liked him, never liked how he always tried to grab the spotlight after the end of every fight like he was the important figure behind the victor walking up to the winner and shaking his hand like look at me yes i made this possible he just seemed like a little weasel

    I feel like if she loses it's guaranteed 100% she retires. 90% if she wins. She's mentally busted. No way she can continue on much longer.

    I thought the UFC had amazing matchmaking, though not Pride levels obviously. I'm afraid corporate interests will dilute cards further, to minimize expense and maximize profit.
