I feel that both of these things can enhance the show. I am pretty sure some japanese promotions do it, it would create a larger than life atmosphere.

What do you think?

While the entrances in Pride were flashy and entertaining, I really dont want that in the UFC. If you would have to do that, Fighters would have to do the stuff they did in Pride, which could add another 5 minutes before a fight starts.

I dont know about anyone here, But I could care less about the entrances, I just want to see the fighters do what they get paid to do..fight.

Personally its never been something thats important to me. I wouldn't dislike it if they did it but I wouldn't start liking the UFC more if they did. However adding some show to the event would probably hype other people up and could be a benefit so I say they do it, at least for the big fights.

They would need to change the whole layout of the event if they did IMO.

The way Strikeforce has it for example looks terrible and actually makes the presentation look worse.

You can still make flashy entrances in UFC if you want to, just not super flashy Pride/WWE style entrances with fireworks and light shows. As mentioned above though those things are so irrelevant that it doesn't really matter.

I think dimming the lights for some of the main eventers is good enough.

I think it would be a good idea to have Pride-style entrances only for the main events. would definitely hype up the fight and bring everything to a fever pitch.

Is this a WWE forum?

Leave the christmas lights on the tree and the fire at the fireside.

That would be ridiculous and turn UFC in a cartoonish thing...

Screw the pyros and lights I want Chael Sonnen to come with a massive cross ala Kimo and Joe Don.

Lights? Whatever.

Pyro? That just sounds like a way to get somebody blown up and set this shit back tremendously. Look what happened to Michael Jackson.

UFC doesn't need pyrotechnics to enhance the show. Its fine just the way it is.

I got the insparation from the Wrestling forum on the VBuliten network however DREAM and Strikeforece has both donr pyros.

I think it could be used to hype a fight. I feel that MMA and wrestling can borrow a lot from each other, if they colaberate they can enhance both of their products.

Leave the Wrestling (the phony stuff) where it belongs, Bimboland...

At the very best one could look at it and learn what not to do!

I do not need any aspects of ******* dancing entering the UFC. Pride did it, but Pride also had a more pro wrestling feel. They had guys in costumes, guys from pro wrestling, and fixed fights. I don't want any of that in the UFC.
