    Obviously you can't have an all-star game for MMA but UFC could do something similar to what the other big sports do. NFL has the quarterbacks challenge, and the punt, pass, kick competition. MLB has the home run derby, NBA has the slam dunk, and 3 point competition. NHL has lots of competitions.

    What if the UFC did a bunch of competitions like that? Who can punch & kick the hardest, and the highest etc. Most punches on the speed-bag in 30 seconds, fastest 100 meter dash, or highest squat jump. Maybe a Bench-pressing competition, or weight-lifting. Maybe some BJJ, Judo, Sumo, Karate matches between UFC fighters.

    They could put on a stacked card and have a fan-fest and all-star competition the day before the fights. Call it UFC All-star weekend.

    Thoughts? Dumb? Fun? Meh? What competitions would you like to see included?

    If im not mistaken, and I'm too lazy to look this up...they do fan expo's at their tentpole events. So in some ways they already do a little of what you speak of. With that in mind, I wish they would do discipline related competitions. For instance, a grappling tournament, a TKD/Karate point fighting tournament, maybe even a ring girls mud wrestling exhibition. I think your suggestion about fastest punch and hardest kick/punch would be dope as well.

    The Fan Expo is the closest you're going to get.
