I just hope they promote the hell out of this event.. that was afflictions problem.. I think I saw two ads on TV the week of the event.. heck they could show Fedors whole fight with Tim in less then a minute for a commercial.. Fedor puts him away quickly and explosively.. makes a great commercial.

Problem is what tape do you show of Fedor? The UFC owns it all.

The UFC is the single biggest MMA promotion in the world, they are the pioneer in almost every aspect of the sport.

How will MMA grow if they keep acting like a tycoon who thinks they own the sport? MMA is a sport that is still growing and evolving, why not support the sport as a whole? The UFC may be the pioneer, but they do not own MMA.

Its still a business and in capitalism, you squash the competition!!!

But I agree that competition is good as it brings out the best in everyone and with the sport growing UFC cannot possibly hold all the contracts.

Yes, they do own most of the top fighters in the world after they bought Pride. Competition is good, just keep it healthy.

Pride never said anything bad about the UFC, they even co-promoted before. Right now, what the UFC is doing is killing other promotions. I just don't like the way the UFC is treating other promotions.

The UFC will remain the number one promotion, just let other promotions be, mind their own business.
