Have you not been following the UFC for the past year? That isn't what this business is about at all any more.

They're never going to fight.

Besides if Anderson wins they'll try to set up Jones vs Silva before GSP vs Silva. I think there's more interest in Jones/Silva and it'd be perfect for MSG.

GSP has a few fights left in his own division, before he should even consider Anderson

Does MLB or MLS cut players for not being exciting or entertaining? UFC does.

This is an official statement from Zuffa in a court filing.

It doesn't make them less legitimate in my opinion but it's clear that entertainment is what they're selling first and foremost.

Not a credible source in my opinion.

People on this site are clueless about this subject. As if they haven't been watching the UFC lately. They tend to get confused with how they want it ran...with how it is and has been ran. I really don't understand why they have such a hard time grasping the fact that the UFC uses WWE tactics to sell. If not enough people are entertained, they won't make the money they need to make. The UFC would rather have a profitable organization than worry if it is legit or not.

I can't believe people still fret over sport vs entertainment. when were these good ol days of pure sport?

Is there someone here who thinks Royce Gracie beat the best fighters in the world at ufc1? Anybody think wandy went unbeaten in 18 straight fights against only top contenders?

The sport is great but if you didn't love the show, the bellator forum would be the most active.

As long as what happens in the cage is legitimate.... and no one is throwing fights I don't really care about the rest of it.

Also, lol @ Silva being a PPV king before Chael came along that guy couldn't draw nothing unless he was thrown on a PPV with BJ.
