Fallen out of love with the UFC

Is it just me or has anyone else fallen out of love with the UFC lately? I don't know if it's just a hangover from the Shogun decision or the lack of big name fights recently, but I seem to be the least interested in it I've been for quite some time. And it's not that I'm not pumped about MMA as a whole, I was more excited for WEC 44 and Strikeforce than the last 2 ufcs of the next 2 (aside from the Penn fight). I'm sure it's jus a slump, but anyone else feeling this?

It's just you. You don't need big names on a card to see great fights.

I've been in a slump for a while now. I haven't gone out of my way to see the PPV's, and when I watch the fights later or read about them, it appears I'm not missing much.

I've always wanted more fights then 1 ppv / mo., but there is sucha thing as too much of a good thing. We've been flooded with PPV's and free events and TUF and WEC and Saturday Night Fights, all in one month, and all at 3+ hours a pop.

Add the stresses of the economy and the upcoming holidays, and it's been a little much. I'd say we're just burned out right now.

I thought I was the only one but feel exactly like the OP and it started after the Shogun fight too. That decision left a real bad taste in my mouth. Anyways, I've purchased pretty much all the PPVs for the last three years but I haven't the last two. I know I'll come back next year I just need a break for now, the holidays are expensive too.

The Shogun vs. Machida fight was one of the greatest fights this year. I really enjoyed watching every second! I can only say Thank you UFC for putting up such an outstanding 5 Round battle.

the last UFC I "HAD" to see was UFC 100, though I am excited to see Penn's fight coming up. This past card (UFC 106) would have been an amazing card if not for Lesnar's medical issues and Karo's prescription pills issues. I would have "HAD" to see this last card had it not fallen apart.

If I actually bought each PPV I might feel the same way but I watch the events for free so I am plenty happy with them.

UFC 107 should make up for it. Imo 107 is stacked hardcore.
