Well, that's encouraging, a full 50% more people now think MMA is a joke than was predicted. hehe jk.
well, maybe not.
I've still found myself wondering if after all is said and done if this is going to help or hurt the sports overall popularity.
I think it could go 2 ways.
Either people get interested and start looking to find out what other events are out there, or they liken all MMA to elitexc and say to themselves, "I'm not going to pay PPV money to see that crap." Thereby damaging future fan prospects for the UFC by proxy.
