anyone losing interest?
Two years ago, I watched pretty much everything MMA/UFC, but now with so many events and PPVs, it seems like I can't keep up anymore. I still watch the big events on fox/ppv, but I might miss a free event every now and then, where as I always made sure I watched them two years ago.

I don't know if this is me losing interest because there is so much content, or if its simply too much content period to keep up with if you have a busy schedule.

Don't get me wrong, I still like the sport, and this isn't a negative post about the sport becoming dull.

I was the same way, never missed any MMA event I had access too. But now I also, like you, miss quite a few events now a days. That being said, I haven't lost interest in the sport, I still love it, I am actually going to the upcoming UFC in Chicago (my first UFC event) to see Rampage get destroyed :D

I'm in the same boat, but it's not losing interest. Losing interest would be if you used to watch a lot more than you used to. You are just watching a smaller percentage of events because there are so many events now. So if you watch the same amount of pay-per-views you used to (for the most part) and you have trouble catching up on Fox/FX, that isn't losing interest; it's just watching a smaller percentage than you used to.

I missed the FX show and will probably miss the upcoming Fox show, but I will see the Super Bowl PPV. Whereas two years ago, the Super Bowl PPV would be the only event of the month. So therefore I'm watching a smaller percentage, but still the same amount overall.

I almost never miss an event unless there is something preventing me from watching it.

I've noticed that I've not been as interested ever since Frankie was robbed. I still watch all the events though.

I've lost a little interest mainly because of how Dana White has been running things by giving out title shots to losers, adding women on PPVs, etc. I still watch roughly the same number of fights per year though probably.

I suggest you watch all OneFC shows to get your MMA fandom back. If you watch those shows and still feel the same. Then your fanhood has passed you by.

I started a thread very similar to this one a few months ago, and totally agree. I love the UFC and MMA but I don't have time to follow all the cards and these days I barely know the fighters on the card except for the more established fighters.

For instance, the UFC relased 9 fighters recently, and I had no clue who the heck they were. :dunno:

I still watch every event but I don't always watch them live anymore. Like others have said, with so many events sometimes it just isn't possible to see em all. I was busy during the fx card so I went back and watched bisping/belfort and rothwell/gonzaga the next morning. still have to watch the other fights.

I actually watch more fights than I used to, but definitely a smaller percentage overall, like The Best Around said.

Yeah that was just bad... I don't know how anyone can look at Benson as the real champ.

But back on point... I love all MMA, I never get bored no matter what promotion i'm watching.
