i don't think that it's all gonna ride on this fight. the mma is getting massive amounts of esposure , thanks to this fight and that's what the sport needs. at the end of the day, the more people who watch wk in and wk out, will ultimately determine the course of the sport. i really wish ufc would follow suit and put some of these live events on t.v so that the word can be spread that much further. dana white said himself that if it wasn't for the ultimate fighter t.v show , there may have not been a ufc right now.
we want this sprot to grow for all. not just for the anal retentive purists.
