The UFC is never going to reach as wide of an audience as the nfl, much less mlb or the nba.
The pay is god awful, and the training regimen freakishly difficult.
The best athletes will always gravitate towards the most glamorous, highest reward sports, which are the team sports.
The UFC has tried a large variety of cable and network venues to air it's fights, and ratings have barely registered.
Zuffa is a huge sources of revenue for Dana and the Fertittas, and for maybe 15-20 fighters. For all the other fighters, they're making walmart assistant manager money.

I remember back in the day UFC was trying to compete against the WWF ( yeah back in the day it was called like that). IS it really the sport that sports that u really want to compete againts or first class sports like the nfl.
The ufc need to step up there game and act like a first class compagny. fighter like JDS GSP edgar brian stann are the best type of fighter to elevate the sports to higher ground.
