Thats beside my point. I didnt say Rampage was the best, I was just saying the pool of fighters is shallow and theyll run out of match ups fast. I want one organization so every dream match up weve ever had can happen. The more oragnizations the less this becomes a possibility. I dont see why every MMA fan doesnt want this.

Like asskicker said I hate these small MMA organizations too, they are stealing some popular and good fighters such as Cage Rage, WEC, WFA, WFC, etc. PRIDE FC and UFC should just buy them all out.

so, you're saying that it is bad to have diversity? if it wasn't for those "crappy" smaller orgs, you wouldn't have a lot of fighters.. since the smaller shows are often showcases for talent that would otherwise go under the radar...

i'll say no more for fear of baseless relatiation.

Well its getting me confused such as which fighter is fighting for who. You are right it brings up some prospects but other than that it gets people really confused who are knew to following MMA and where each fighter fights.

If organizations had there fighters fight fighters from other orgs more often I'd be fine with it. But the way it is you get one great fight in one org another great fighter in another org and so on and they never fight eachother. You see what Im sayin?

this is the same thing as the independent/local promoters of wrestling... their are literally hundreds of small, local wrestling shows.. and most of them make up the NWA... its an agreement to stay local and not move around into other territories... the difference is, that in the NWA, wrestlers can move around... they worked out an agreement. but with MMA, it doesn't seem like that's ever going to happen... especially no collaboration with Dana.

Since we are talking about the WFA, who the hell was that guy that bas ruten fought? Did you see the KISS makeup? Bas ko'd him with leg kicks in the first round. Anybody that gets ko'd from leg kicks is a wimp, even if they are from "el gaupo".

u guys need to give the WFA a break, it took the UFC over 10 years to gain mainstream popularity, give them time to work sh*t out and develop a better marketing/business plan. Alot of u guys forget that MMA is not a sport it's a business!!

As far as having one MMA org thats just stupid, competition is great and much needed in this industry, If there was only one company doing MMA then it would be exactly like pro wrestling and the WWE.

As far as the WFA gobbling up free agents so what...these guys have kids to feed and bills to pay just like everyone, Dana's not spending any of his huge profits on aquiring established talent, he'd rather develop young talent and pay them crap.
