If they had 1 event on PPV and 1 event for free, I would be down for that. I would have to pay $90 bucks a month for 2 ppv events and that's like almost doubling the cable bill.

No I like the cuurent set up if it was all the time its appeal would lessen. Also fighter pull out all the time due to injury etc imagine how much more that would happen if the amount of cards were doubled.

Not to mention the talent pool would be severely diluted



Thanks to Plazz for the awesome sig

im fine with the way it is now, there are still other mma events to watch, plus fightnights ect.

also ufc 89, and 90 were only 1 week apart. Then ufc 91 is already here, I theres enough events for right now.

i like the OP idea.i would like to see more shows - i mean UFC events.
maybe 24 events a year is abit too much to start with at this momment..but if we have now around 12 events a year..i would like them to try and push it up to 16 or 18a year.that will be the ideal middle i think.for fans and fighters alike.<and possibly make some extra money for the UFC>

Between actually UFC events (ones with numbers), Ultimate Fight Nights, WEC events, and the ultimate fighter they have it covered. Also it wouldn't kill you to watch one of Affliction's two shows a year (really how do you compete with 2 shows a year) or DREAM.

There needs to be at least 2 UFC events a month if not 3. Just this past April the UFC had to cut 25% of it's roster because they didn't have the events to host all of their fighters. And with the collapse of EXC, the merging of WEC divisions and the imminent collapse of Affliction all of these talented fighters are going to need somewhere to fight. The UFC clearly has a business model that works, now it's time to expand and pick up the pieces the failures have left littering the landscape.

The more events, the more wear and tear on the athletes' bodies. Putting on a fight card is not like putting on a broadway play. Each fight is severely taxing on the human body, in almost every case.

Look at what's happened in the WWE; professional wrestlers, despite the constant cheap shot of "fake" wrestling with worked endings, push their bodies to the limit and too many wind up dying at far too young an age. Those who survive typically endure a lifetime of severe pain.

Although the neurological effects of MMA fighting are likely a bit less severe than in boxing for example, with it's 12 round fights, and with the head and upper body being the sole targets of attack, or professional wrestling, in which athletes sometimes travel 300 days a year, and wrestle 3X a week, it's clear that a number of MMA fighters are pushing the limits of what their bodies can tolerate, also.

Nogueira and Rampage come to mind immediately. I'm a little worried about Forrest's speech patterns as well, which sound slurred and slow.

Haven't Forrest and Rampage always talked like that? Also NOG doesn't talk slow when he's speaking Portuguese. If you look at most championship fights in boxing, the two aren't compariable. Calzaghe dominate Jones jr, and Jones landed 160 punches. I don't think I've ever seen a mma fight where someone threw 160 strikes. The reason for brain damage is the constant bouncing of the brain against the skull. In most mma fights there is enough shots landed to cause this kind of damage.
