First I would promote more. TV ads, Mag ads, and Internet ads. Then I would try and get more top fighters. Then try and have every state sanction MMA. Look for more sponsors, like Hooters and Budweiser. Now that UFC and MMA is growing, I create a video game.

There is a UFC game for the PS2. Its been out for over a year. Although they need a new one. Alot of the fighters on it are outdated.

A big time sponsor would be good as long as that money goes into getting more talent and paying to keep the best here. I feel that SPIKE T.V. is fine for the UFC. I dont think ESPN would really make a big difference. OF course I'd like to see coverage of events on ESPN news(sportcenter,etc..), but most ESPN Fans are pretty diehard fans of all sports and probably know to turn the channel to SPIKE.

Having more top notch cards is a big key IMO.

I would reintroduce tournaments as per the original UFC I, II and III. These wouldn't be "title" matches for belts, but one-off tournament bragging rights. I see fighters like Frank Trigg, Chris Leben, etc. lose a couple fights in a row... and head towards no-man's land for their future... diminished in importance, released from UFC, whatever, etc.

I'd run a "One Night Fight" tournament every two weeks, each tournament involving one weight class, with 16 fighters entered:
Round 1: 8 fights
Round 2: 4 fights
Round 3: 2 fights
Round 4: 1 fight (Finals)

Win four fights, and you win the tourney. Every 10 weeks, the five weight classes have been gone through once. Every fighter, no matter what their standing/rank, would have a chance every few months to enter an all night tourney. Pay each fighter an equal flat fee, then a bonus for each win. The guy who wins the tourney makes the most money.

Make it a Saturday night 8 pm - midnight thing (15 fights total), and put it on regular TV. This would give everyone a look at many fighters other than the belt holders. It would create awareness of the PPV title stuff, give a place for losing fighters to redeem themselves, and put victory by attrition back into the sport. And give a place for that big sponsor to advertise.

And if that worked out, I'd look at having European versions, North American, South American, Asian.... then have twice a year the champions of each zone go against each other. Make an Olympics of the whole thing.

Get rid of Mike Goldberg and move Joe Rogan to Play-by-Play and hire another color commentator. Randy Coulture is decent but he needs to speak up and be heard. Sorry but I am just sick of Mike Goldberg and his constant repetitions of certain phrases, he hardly ever has anything worthwhile to say, he just tries to sound dramatic.

"And its ALLLLLLLL over and it's ALLLLLLLL over and its ALLLLLLLLL over!"

STFU!!!!

Randy GNP has a little shameless behaviour in the past
There are video games for x-box and PS2. I have UFC Tapout 2 for xbox and it is one of my favorite games. The fighters are outdated and the load times are way to long. However, the fight system is very indepth and I love the realism. They need to make another game with better advertising.

Way more UFC on spike. Buy out pride. Give pay bonuses for submissions and knockouts. I don't really like the tournaments though because the later fight usually suck. If you've already fought two or three times that night the Finals can be really boring. I also hate that sometimes fighters have to drop out and alternates get to take thier place.

The best thing to do is to get rid of those boxing judges and get some real MMA judges. Scrap those boxing rejects who F up the scoring in a MMA fight. Joe Rogean has even talked about it on the air, when he was talking about the Jardine v. Bonner fight and how the judges scored it all wrong.
