UFC influenced by WWE?

Sources state that Vince Mcmahon from WWE said in an interview that Dana should build characters if he wants the sport to grow and become more lucrative and popular. The fanbase would be alot greater. He also described the most important action of influencing the outcome of fights. This really urked me when I heard that. I hope Dana doesn't go that route, but after the TUF3 finale "the comeback" It seems that maybe he took some of Vince's advice to heart. Matt Sera clearly lost that fight but since he obviously makes for a better "character" ;due to his seniority, persona, and popularity, do you think maybe the outcome was influenced by unforseen forces? Like WWE type forces? We all know WWE is fake and UFC is as real as it gets! Did anyone else hear this Vince Mcmahon thing?

UFC is sanctionned by the Nevada state comission, i dont know about TUF fights, but i think it is as well. So no, Dana White did not influence the judges, if thats what ur impling. Bad decisions(if that was one,i dont know, i didnt see it) happens every events, thats why u should try to finish the fight.

As for the caracters things, its a lot harder to do, since the fighters are paid by 3 fights contracts usually, so they can disappear within a year. But there are already some, like having the americans almost dominating every weight classes. U can be sure Dana White is sending one of his own to Anderson Silva to hope to regain the belt.
