Very true- that would really tarnish the whole thing, possibly end it. It could happen sooner than expected. How many fights have we seen where one fighter is out and the other fighter hit's them a few times after the ko- to demonstrate that they are out?

Shamrock was expected to hit Kimo- after it was pretty clear he was out. It's a hard line going form adrenaline pumping fight mode to immediately stopping- it takes discipline. But it probably needs to happen before it is too late one day.

UFC needs the yellow card, red card system like PRIDE, if a fighter in a dominant position isn't doing sh*t then punish them!

BigE has a little shameless behaviour in the past
The reason why the UFC is becoming so popular in the United States is because it brings everything that boxing no longer can: immediate outcomes, legitimate fights, intense violence, and the bad boy swagger. People are literally getting knocked the **** out or having their shit broke the **** off every single fight. It appeals to the impatience and violence-hungry culture that is ever so dominant in the US and to some extent the new "global culture."

Some of us find some of the more nuanced portions of an MMA match to be the reason to watch. The technical skill of the submission wrestler, the discipline of the striker. Athletes who believe in facta, non verba. Competitors who show respect for the abilities of their opponents, and concern for the safty of their bodies. The emotions of a fighter so elated by victory or crushed by defeat you can see it in their eyes - instead of what you usually see in the eyes of professional athletes - the glint of anticipation for their next paycheck and the shallow concern for their own legacy.

Not all of us need the blood.

I agree with KDS. The only other thing is if the UFC becomes crooked if it hasn't already. Boxing was such a highlighted sport for decades but eventually crooked promoters got into the mix and ruined the sport. If this would be the case then the old saying will come to fruition."All good things must come to an end."
