That’s 106 fighters out of a roster of 600
Goof's plan to phase out grappling from the Ultimate Circus is in full swing.
Is there a significant difference between getting guys off DWCS and picking guys from random regional orgs? Would be interesting to keep a tally of how many of these guys are cut after their first few fights. If the total roster keeps growing with the amount of fights they're putting on, I don't see why the majority necessarily would have to be from there.
He just handed out a few contracts tonight. Tomorrow he is going to need to cut some fighters to make room. Fighters on the roster should be glad the season is over.
I is 6 is wayyyy too much. But if thatd the cost of getting grappling out of the sport then it's a net benefit I suppose
Can't be true because some have been axed like Bevon Lewis.
explains why i never know who anyone is anymore.
A good number of them have been cut so I don’t know this is very accurate
Must not be working because all the fights tonight were boring grappling matches. I hope no one was awarded a ufc contract
Biggest difference is that fighters get a lot more eye balls on them if their first fight in the company is on contenders as opposed to some random prelim fight.
That’s what the show is, UFC prelims with extra bells and whistles
Is that the case for like big card PPV prelims you think? More eyes on this program than a Izzy vs Yoel Prelim for example?
By more eyes I mean more focus. On the contender series, prelim fighters are the stars of the show.
This show is meant to get us to care about low profile fighters
I pretty much only pay attention to ranked and soon to be ranked fighters, so I don't really care that Dana is making a legal version of Bum Fights.
Oh for sure, but isn't a a Prelim Fight also supposed to do the same to a degree?
I kind of get what your saying and don't necessarily disagree, can you explain what you mean by focus? as in like the backstory and Talent Show style sob stories and such to add to the appeal for the casual fan?
Something tells me this isn't the sport for you, pal.
Their aren’t any bigger fighters out there to draw our focus away from the smaller guys. We aren’t waiting for a big main event
Plus the sob stories and how these guys are asked to beg for a contract. It’s all designed to get people invested.
I feel like the show is styled after American Idol and I think it works
Seems to me like it is getting these guys attention
Rotate the higher paid guys out, keep the fresh cheap ones coming. They are willing to ditch game plans and impress the boss by swangin’-n-bangin’ more than the vets
