Ok let me try this one more time for you.
How is turning an profit in the first 2 years of an MMA promotion so easy?
Having sponsors that pay
you, fans that pay
for your event, not overpaying
fighters, and not trying to become as big as the UFC in the first two years which saves
you money. They have these money making options at their disposal because of Dana and the UFC. Again, being a niche company makes it easier to turn a profit.
And if it was why doesn't everyone do it.
They don't have patience and want to be as big as the UFC from the get go. So they overspend
on fighters, they try and have these huge expensive
events, they are poorly run.
Coker is doing things no one else has done.
Only thing he has done is make a profit faster but only after following the Zuffa model. You can't provide one thing that he did differently than Zuffa.
Also consider the fact Dana has made some mistakes. Think about him buying Pride. That was a huge mistake one that he basically threw money away in. Didn't buy really anything but a Library.
I bet Dana wished he had you by his side to tell him he was getting screwed over since it was so obvious that he was. That is such a bad example of a mistake and I'm sure we can find some mistakes Coker has made if we wanted too.
