I think its a shame that the biggest promotion in the world gives their fighter a curtain to walk through.
Not saying that they should do it like in PRIDE or DREAM, but at least let them have kind of a stage. I don't get that minimalism.
In Japan the link between pro wrestling and mma is huge and pro wrestling is more respected so mma wants that big show feeling of pro wrestling, in the US people see pro wrestling in a much less respectable light and it is not seen as legitimately as in Japan so in the US they want to differentiate themselves from prowrestling rather than embrace it.
