having fans vote for matches would be a revolutionary thing in sports. especially since MMA, and fighting in general is very much linked to "who the fans want to fight who". in football, you get what you get, and usually you always see the matchup you want. same with all other sports... but in MMA, we're always saying; "what if A fought B" or shit like that.
honestly, it would make MMA, and the UFC so much better because every PPV and every event would be what the majority of the fans wanted!!!
i'd love to hear some people's ideas of a down side to this... cause really, there aren't any logical objections to it!
i mean, if it was really up to the fans, you woulnd't get 2 or 3 of the same fight within 6 months. fans want to see variety, not every fighter having a trilogy of matches with every other fighter, all the time... plus, it would get rid of the whole "can" concept and inflated record claims. sure, you'd need to have bookers make fights for new guys. but have new guys fight new guys and ear the spot to get voted into a fight with an established fighter!
