Sounds a bit like WAMMA, unfortunately it will never happen...

you would think thats how it should be. Maybe we are just ignorant and cant see the big picture or something.
Maybe most of the world thinks differently i doubt it though. People are so stuck on money and not what is right nowadays its sickning

Oh c'mon!! You cant tell me it wasnt fun to see Big Tim get toppled by Couture? He took so long to fall over, Rogan could have squeezed in a cry of "TIIIIIMBEEEEEERRRRR!!"

I have a feeling that a lot of these issues stem from Dana's inability to look past money and see what is better for MMA, not the UFC. By the way, HW's don't get paid more money, Randy and Brock just happen to be the UFC's biggest draws.

His job is to look out for what is best for the UFC not what is best for MMA. He may be a douche but he is a succesful douche whose company is far and away the biggest in the industry. Why should he do anything to risk his companies position?

dana did and does a great job..but how is signing the best HW guys risking the UFC?

With all the successes the UFC had you would expect they could afford to bring in at least 3 from the 5 I wrote.they have done so in all the other divisions. Why isn't the HW as competitive?

I thought the UFC was supposed to have the best fighers in the world, not the best fighters that agree to bullshit terms in contracts.
