The Future of the UFC
I just want to hear about some opinions about the future of the UFC and what they have to do to keep the fans happy. Recently I have not been enjoying the pay per view events nearly as much as in the past. I usually am only interested in the top 2 or maybe 3 fights. I know that Pride usually offers many more fights, and bigger named fights on a regular basis. I really want to see UFC broaden their rosters and start gaining some international talent instead of just basing most of the talent out of North America. I would love to see a large amount of fighters out of Europe come over and fight in the UFC. We have to start raising the bar alittle higher in the UFC to keep things fresh, and stop with the Trilogy matches!

What are your guys opinions?

White has said they are pushing to go global with shows being planned for the UK in about a year. It's a wise business decision considering Pride's presence in the U.S. now though the "Westernized" version of Pride will be watered down compared to the original in the far east.

A fighter who is not spoken of enough IMO. Future Super fight looms between Kosh and Sanchez.

The UFC needs to increase the pay-outs for the undercards and re-structure the difference in pay-outs: Example

1) In some cases the loser gets near as much as the winner in a fight.
2) Some of the undercards get paid ridiculously lower than the main eventers.
3) They need to continue throwing the fans a bone or two, like Ortiz-Shamrock 3 where they put it on Spike TV for free.

If you increase and re-structure the payouts and throw the fans a bone once in a while the UFC with accomplish three things.

1) Motivate the current roster of fighters to step it up a bit.
2) Attract other fighters from other organizations.
3) Attract a new fan base.

Let's face people, it's all about the Benjamin's $$$$

it all depends, i mean their main audience is uneducated rednecks, so they could just give them subpar fights and typcial KO fests and they'd keep them happy... but if PRIDE gets their act together, UFC will have to up its game.

although, if enough educated fans complain, UFC will change. as they have already shown interest in growth, by bringing in Anderson, and now maybe Aleks!

it all depends. are they going for WWE type superiority where quality doesn't matter, only profit, or are they going for a supreme MMA event?

With all the excellent talent out there it should not be a problem finding a bunch of new talent for the UFC that doesnt come from a reality show. I know a lot of the fighters on the show have a decent backround in MMA, but sometimes that just doesnt cut it. It would be very interesting if MMA took a turn like boxing (not as crappy and fixed) but where each fighter is fighting for their own country and pride. So we see all the fights we want to see, and the best of the best compete. You would just have to have maybe a couple levels of belts. Maybe 2 belts per weight class or something haha
