sleeptones has a little shameless behaviour in the past
I just dont want MMA to turn out like boxing, competition is good yes, but its going to be like Pride and UFC all over again how the fighters were seperated. And then when UFC bought Pride, we got excited to see all the great fighters in one organizations to see who really is the best. I just dont want Cuban to split everything up that Dana has worked for and he has worked hard love him or hate him. He is bringing in all the best fighters in the world to compete in the UFC.

hate him! all these great fighters and we see maybe 2 or 4 fighters thats 2 high profile fights rest is just TUFers taking up time on the ppv keep in mind we dont have pride anymore to bank on to have a decent ppv every month now just UFC 3 to 4 TUF tier fights and maybe 1 or 2 high profile fights. PLUS the TUFers would shit in their pants if they knew what a 4 point strike is, i guess TUF dont teach that on their show how are these real mma fighters? i thought it was mma without 4 points attack, stomps, soccer kicks the UFC is just another reality show. Dana white only promote who will jack up rating. Fedor wont sign cause he is NOT about ratings. What he IS about is competition. minor league playing with major league sure they'll get lucky but in the long run fans who pays looses.

I would agree if Dana was willing to sign all the top guys. Their are a lot of top fighters out there right now with nowhere to fight and if Cuban can give them somewhere than he is doing MMA some good. Guys like Barnett, Arona, Kang, Nogueira, Sokdoujou, Hunt, and Lindland are some of the best in the world and some of them will probably never end up in the UFC (Lindland and Barnett) and some aren't getting respectable offers or any offers(In their opinion) from the UFC (Sokky, Hunt, Arona, Kang and Nogueira.) If their is somewhere for these guys to fight then it's good for MMA.
