For instance, the UFC relased 9 fighters recently, and I had no clue who the heck they were.
Wow that blows my mind. You didn't know any of them? I don't understand how people(not you specifically) can watch someone fight a handful of times and never remember them.
I constantly have to say "remember when he fought ___ and ___ happened"?

EDIT: these kind of threads really make the elitest in me come out.

Most of the time when I miss a card it is because I had something else to do. Sometimes a card is so weak that I don't bother getting up at 7am to watch it.

I only watched the Bisping vs Belfort fight in the previous event. Watched the rest of the main event fights later on.

To be honest, I've been really busy in my persoanl life and have missed quite a few events, and I stopped watching Tuf's. So the tuf guys who come into the ufc after the shows are over and new to me. Once I have the time again, I'll start catching up on the stuff I"m currently mising out on.

I stopped watching TUF a few seasons ago. But I watch a ton of MMA not just UFC events but alot of MMA outside of Zuffa.
OneFC is as entertaining as it gets right now. Bellator has been amazing and AXS TV(formerly HDNet) always has some great shows from various promotions. It's great. Like watching Douglas Lima dominate MFC and go on to win Bellator tourney. Watching Jimmo at MFC and getting that fast KO in the UFC. Watching Creepy in Tachi and seeing him get throw into the title mix right away. Love it.

I'm also in the same boat and I think I know the reason why I am and many of you are as well. The UFC since last year has decided to saturate the market with events after events. You can't have a stacked card every weeks so what the UFC has done is it's put one good fight per card. Last week it was Vitor vs Bisping. Why do you think the Bones card got cancelled last August? The only reason people were going to buy the ppv was cause of that one single fight, the rest of the card sucked. The UFC needs to go back to their previous way of doing things. Get rid of the FX/Fuel cards because they aren't worth it. Keep the FOX/PPV cards and keep that stacked. The addition of 125 lbs weight class also isn't helping anyone (neither is 135 or womens really).

It's obvious what the UFC is trying to do, they want to become like the NFL and become insanely popular but they're doing is becoming like the NBA/NHL, having too many shows.

Yeah same here, I mostly just watch the main ppv events now and sometimes I miss those because of personal life (like Belfort v Bisping which I missed). Not really because of lack of interest but rather because of time restrictions.

I think there is a common trend here. Fans of UFC are losing interest. Fans of MMA are as happy as ever.

This is why I'm watching less. I have no issue with having more events but the UFC has made it clear they are leaning down the WWE path rather than the sport path. From what I understand that is purely a money decision, their market research shows that is what the majority of fans want but it is exactly the opposite of what I want to see.

I believe this isn't gonna be the case once the Strikeforce guys get over. The FOX card, 156, 157, and the Barao/Mayday and Silva/Stann FUEL cards are all stacked, especially the Japan one, Wand/Stann, Hunt/Struve, Lombard/Okami, and Diego/Gomi. Are you shitting me? That's a badass free card right there, then you have the GSP/Diaz, Condit/Rory, Ellenberger/Hendricks card and it looks like Alvarez is gonna fight on the Jersey card if he gets his legal situation settled, you could put Davis/Shogun and Miller/Masvidal or something like that on the card incase Eddie can't make it and the FOX card in April has Bendo/Gil, DC/Mir, and Hardy/Brown on it. Throw in Thomson/Diaz and that's another awesome card.

Seriously provided most of these fights hold up, because I'm sure we're gonna lose a few fights here and there, the start of 2013 looks amazing. The cards look so good, everyone's DVR needs to be ready to go.

I see alot of complaints about the UFC from people that can barely manage to watch the main cards of UFC events.
I don't see any complaints about MMA from fans of the sport as a whole. Do any of you losing interest watch any MMA besides UFC? What about besides UFC and Bellator?
