Yes I realize this modern era of UFC is vastly different from the bygone era and the birth of MMA in the United States but it was never quite as evident to me as it was last night....or maybe I just never really thought about it! I'm interested in everyone's thoughts on this.....today is the era of pretty faces, and manufactured personalities, the pioneers provided an aura of gunslingers, barroom tough guys and badass jocks. Sage Northcutt types or Don Frye, Tank Abbott, and Mark Coleman? For me....the Sage types with virgin ears takes the aura of danger out of the game. But then again UFC is a business and the Zuffa era is modeled after WWE....we don't have a choice!
