Do you have any videos? Because if you dont then i must say you have probably no chance whatsoever of making it to the UFC. Nothing personal, it's just rare to see that kind of talent.
Also, if making it to the UFC is your goal then training in Krav is a complete waste of time as it has no application to MMA whatsoever.

For me the WEC merge is a problem, i have no interest in watching small mens fighting, so i guess that means less UFC nights at my place, less money to the PPV. We probably gonna have to deal with some boring cards in 2011 because of those small men fights. But i know a lot of people like to watch those fights....
They also need to cut those who don't want to fight, like Maia who don't want to stay on his feet and some of the wrestlers who only control their oponents, but don't try to finish and don't do any damage.
And a new rule, if you go to decison you only get half of your purse, i think that would give one hell of a show.

The show doesn't interest me much, I rarely watch the trashtalk between fighters. I watch fights not so much out of entertainment reasons, but mostly to analyse them.

What I think the UFC (and the other organisations) should get rid off is the 10 points must decision system, but I would also second the idea that fighters that go to a decision get less paid.

The 10 point must system is mandated by the athletic commission, the UFC can't just get rid of it. Even if Dana launched a campaign to work with the commissions to alter the system, it would be a long political/legal process. I'd love to see it happen though.

Yeah the UFC sucks.


They need to add an another person in that octagon and make it a free for all.

Or they can start having Handicap matches now. Where they take 2 145ers and put them in the octagon against a HW. We can figure out who the best HW is at fighting 2 guys at once or who the best team of 145ers are.

Maybe LADDER TYPE TITLE MATCHES?? The winner has to climb a 20foot ladder and grab the title hanging from a rope. BUT WAIT!!! lets spice it up more and hang up a dozen poison(Numbness) snakes(None lethal ofcourse) at different heights next to the ladder and the title. So as they climb the snakes try and bite them. Imagine a guy getting to the top and about to reach the title and the final snake biting him in the hand and him being too numb to grab it. Then the guy thats KO'd wake sup and pulls him down and becomes the NEW UFC CHAMP!!


Oh the fun we could have!!

Spicy enough for you?

I like the complaint about smaller fighters. Watching heavyweights that gas after the 1st round, and slop two more rounds of sloth like fighting is way worse. The lighter fighters tend to put on more fast paced and energetic fights. I think that this is really an issue of people's interest in the sport as a whole. Casual fans are going to have to learn about a ton of new fighters before they can recognize a couple to throw into their tiny pot of ever changing "favorite" fighters.

The small guys are great to watch. If all the big guys fought like the small guys then no fights would be boring!

To ensure that we have no further complaints about greasing, all fighters should dunk themselves in a tub of oil before stepping into the cage. Now I understand that some of us guys aren't big fans of oiled up men in tights fighting each other in a cage, and that's why there should also be a womens division where once again, the ladies dunk themselves in oil before getting into the cage.

I love the ufc too much to notice a flaw. However if strikerforce can get a star studded card then the ufc might be in trouble. But it my be my personal bias but every ufc event is exciting.
