    Been on these forums a long time. We have all seen waves of new fans come along, some which post on here. Conor arguably brought the most new fans to the UFC (Just the UFC not MMA). Lately I’ve seen a lot of odd threads/comments from new users. So my question is...

    Where are they coming from and who’s bringing them in?

    Is it because of khabib?

    Airing fights to a more casual market (ESPN)?

    Social media?

    Discuss...

    You don’t like seeing daily Khabib threads that are completely superfluous to the MMA landscape?

    It’s the hot dog branders bud.


    in all seriousness I think a lot of them came from ufc being one of the only sports running during covid. Especially how quickly it got back. But I personally have observed a massive increase.

    i think there has been a huge influx children joining this forum who were being bombarded with ufc advertisements and promos through the disney plus kids mode.

    I mean I know he’s got lots of hype within the MMA community but didn’t think he was that popular outside of it.

    He’s not. If he beats Leon edwards he may start to pull some people in. But he just got ranked. That’s like saying Johnny walker or Sean omalley brought in legions of fans. Sorry but they didn’t

    To be fair there are already ultra casuals.. I mean what other explanation is there for people to shit on someone like RDA? Definition of casual if you ask me.

    Yeah that wouldn’t make too much sense for him to be bringing them in. I highly doubt he gets passed Edwards.
