If you were Dana White what would you do?

If you were the prez of the UFC, what are some of the things you would change or not change...
1) I would definitley look at the rules & scoring a little closer.
2)Change the salary breakdown
3)A few more UFN (On SPIKE of course)to get the blood flowing into new spectators
4)Try to score a BIG TIME sponsor

Well I could go on and on but what would you do?

You can't have everything. Where would you put it?

The rules are fine they make since. They may need new judges. The salary breakdown is fine. I think they have UFN every month so thats ok. A big time sponsor never herts

I dunno. Its a safe bet he has to change something if a fansite is complaining. I would probably just get a big time sponsor and not be a dumbass with matches.

I think Dana has mentioned this before, but I would like the UFC pursue talks with ESPN to cover the sport. It makes a ton of sense for both companies. Doesn't it?

They need to modify their scoring for sure, they should get one that is similar to prides, in that they loose money or points for not being agressive.

Landing a big sponsor would help to, they could their fighters better, and advertise more, and become absolutely massive.

The rules seem fine, i dont think they really need to modifiy those.
