My humble opinion on the ufc

sorry for my english

Do you think the ufc is going backward in longterm with the way they promote the sports. Imo Dana white is not the right guys to birng the sports of MMA in the promised land. I like the man is blog are very fun to watch but i think he take stuff way to personel he swear a lot I almost feel he promote bad behabvior among is fighter to create drama and sell ticket .

I remember back in the day UFC was trying to compete against the WWF ( yeah back in the day it was called like that). IS it really the sport that sports that u really want to compete againts or first class sports like the nfl.

The ufc need to step up there game and act like a first class compagny. fighter like JDS GSP edgar brian stann are the best type of fighter to elevate the sports to higher ground.

It's what sells. Do you see how often Jon Jones is appearing on ESPN now? Rampage vs. Hamill, which was on-paper one of the worst main events ever, did almost double the buyrate of the Edgar/Beno 2 fight. Fighters with no personality just are not marketable.

With that being said, the UFC sort of needs to accept where they are. They will always only appeal to a certain audience outside of a huge fight.

I disagree, once the sport evolves to the point where there are more JDS, Aldo kind of guys that are elite strikers with good TDD the sport will really take off. Once guys like Jon Fitch can't win any more fights things will change.

I like things better the way they are.

I prefer Nick Diaz being who he is than having having a fake image where he claims he "never inhaled".

I don't believe in politically correct "professionalism" built on lies and ppl cultivating fake jesus wannabe images where if they get caught in a strip club or say something people who are complete whiners disagree with its a "scandal"

A lot of the of the people who try to pretend they're professional are complete fakes and phonies who say one thing & do the complete opposite. I don't see how mma benefits from illicit marketing campaigns where ppl put up a front & pretend to be things they are not.

The UFC is such a diverse and unique sport I don't think you can compare it to a league like the NFL,NBA,etc. It will always be the evolution of boxing in my opinion,and will always follow that model. You sell fights and watch it for entertainment and follow a few fighters. Dana white is the perfect fit for the UFC.

The only way I see the UFC becoming a legit sport is if they break that PPV model, which will be impossible to do. Until then it is what it is which is prize fighting. The UFC will continue to grow, however I don't ever seeing it being a powerhouse like a legit sport league. The thing with the UFC its one and out, like you lose its over, you set up the biggest fights there is a drawback.

This is the fight game, not badminton.

Two men are going to try and kill each other. Of course there's going to be drama.

As long as Dana puts business first, i have no problem. Like he said his going to confront Jones about his comments at 152 in Toronto. That talk between them should occur after the fight imo, that Jones could put all his focus on Vitor and nothing else.

I'm with the OP, UFC used to be a much more legitimate sport. Today's UFC is a complete joke with undeserving nobodies like Chael Sonnen getting title shots. You'd never see that back in the old UFCs.

Unrelated, but I just watched UFC 3, that shit was awesome.
