Damn, I'd kill to see UFC at the ACC. I live in Cambridge (about an hour from it) so that would be perfect. LOL @ newfie comment

They have some room left, they can go to places where fans have been waiting years to see the UFC. The could develop WEC, and turn it into some kind of Second brand idea and have WEC-UFC matches. There are a lot of stuff.

I think the UFC might be close just do to the fact I dont see alot of the guys coming up being superstars in the sense of what guys like Couture and Lidell are and what guys like Shamrock, Gracie, and even Tito wore at one time. The only guys I think the UFC has right now that will attaing that staus or even have the possibility are BJ Penn, GSP and Forret Griffen, fighter just dont seen to have the same longevity.

I think that the UFC will have a hard time stacking the events like they have in 07. But I don't think that it will signifigantly damage it's popularity. The UFC video game looks insane, and that will probably pull in new viewers (as long as they can put the damn controller down). I think that Jackson is going to grow on people, whether they want to admit it or not. Same with Nog and Wanderlei. Roger Heurta is winning a lot of people over as well. I'm obviously talking about appealing to more casual fans, but UFC has a lot to work with in 08 besides what I listed. But this post is way too long anyways, and I'm hungry for wings.
