The UFC can't do anything about their rules or scoring as that is determined by the various State Athletic Commissions.


Getting coverage on ESPN and the various sports networks would be huge for the UFC. So they should work towards that.

A big time sponsor would definitely be my #1 goal. I think that's the only real thing UFC is lacking. The idea of more UFN on Spike is a good idea as well, but there are so many re-runs on Spike already that I don't think its a huge deal (except to the devoted fans who have seen all the fights before). Lastly, I would re-train my refs so they all stop fights in the same manner, and re-train the judges so they all score the fights in a similar manner. I'm sick of these bad stoppages by refs and the judges being bad at scoring fights.

The only thing keeping them from not going to espn is well espn. If i see one more world seris of anything other than poker im going to break my T.V. Anyways i think that UFC owes Spike tv for giving them a chance, or ESPN isnt interested with UFC.

I know this is offtopic, but Organik where did you get your avatar? That is awesome. Cracks me up every time I see it. Not looking to steel it or anything but is there more to it like a clip or something?
