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.
Are you being serious right now? The addition of the flyweights isn't helping anyone? No offense meant here, but you give off a vibe of a casual fan who watches just for knockouts and barn burners. Now, do I think that the division is as great as it can be at the moment? No. But that's because of some silly decisions by our messiah Mr. White regarding talent in the division, not the presence of the division. I will not get into my feels about the woman's division because we would definitely butt heads over that.

Your comparison of the UFC looking to become the new NFL but instead becoming the NHL or NBA, and that you see that as a bad thing is laughable at best. The NBA is a very popular sport even if they 'over saturate the market.' I for one am glad for all these fights. A lot of the guys fighting on these 'not stacked' cards are underrated and have bills to pay as well. I like that the UFC gives them the opportunity to compete and I enjoy it all. If it's the UFC you have a problem with, fine, there are plenty of other quality MMA organizations out there you should check out.

I'm definitely not losing interest, my only complaint would be that there aren't nearly enough title fights anymore. 2 per year, per division tops just doesn't cut it imo.

Yeah i used to watch every event from every organization. Now i dont.... I just read what happened.

But tbh thats just because my job now has me working Mon,Wed,Thur,Friday,Saturday

From 2-10

So i dont really have a chance to watch the events anymore. I torrent the UFC events on Sundays usually and the other MMA events i just read about/get the results.

The sport is still as amazing as ever but tbh its only normal to not be as excited about something after 5-6 years of watching it.

That's pretty much what I do a lot. I've missed a ton of events from strikeforce, UFC and other orgs, so I tend to read the results and interviews from work to keep up with what's going on, but I find my time constraints in my personal life at the momement are stopping me from following the sport as well as I'd like to. But if I miss a great event and hear about how good it was, I will download it via torrents as well.

Im fairly certain its not that simple.

Alot of MMA fans become UFC fans because of the loss of interest. And some MMA fans just arnt as excited anymore cause they have been watching the sport for a long time.

I don't understand that concept at all. Many of the European fans here have been soccer fans forever and I never hear about them losing interest in soccer. Same for me and American Football. Love it as much as ever and will never get tired of it. That's how I am with MMA as well, especially now that there is more talent out there then ever before and more media outlets covering MMA then ever before. I got to watch Bellator, RFA and UFC all in HD on my TV without paying any extras over the weekend. 3 free cards. If anything the interest should be growing with the talent. Plenty of great fights happening all the time. Who gets tired of knockouts, back and forth battles and amazing displays of skill and effort? Love it. Love it, love it, love it.

I would say I was a UFC fan mostly. I reckon 90% of the MMA I watch is in the UFC.
