UFC is Dead

Postby Einstein-Universe » Apr 19. 2017, 20:30

Seems to me with UFC at the age of 24 years just dose not have the power of the past
There are so few stars as there where in the past and the selling of UFC last year doesn't help either
Seems ho hum now, but I guess a sucker is born everyday for the youngsters that find it new to them and then they'll get old and......

I suggest adding a selection to your poll that is in opposition to your personal opinion.
Your opinion is not supported by reality. Revenue gains, prize payouts, viewer stats, division roster sizes, increase in fan base size, mainstream appeal, endorsement values, movie and television career opportunities for fighers, or company worth.

Your best bet would be to just stop watching it, paying any attention to it, quit posting on MMASHARE, and take up something else with your time. Maybe skydiving, rock climbing, base jumping, barreling over falls, Middle East hiking trips, taking up snakes, running of the bulls, or maybe volcano surfing.

in mma's dark age of roids, gsp was the best conditioned of them all. things that make you go hhhhmmmmmm

mma is a dog n pony show disguised as a legitimately run sport

It's definitely evolved from what it used to be znd it lost a lot of fans that were old school.... but it did gain a lot of casuals and new fans which keep revenue and viewership up. I do find the new model irksome

Next three cards are looking pretty stacked with names and matchups. Your faith will probably be restored. At the moment I'm really hanging out for my UFC fix after the last three week hiatus. Last Saturday was baus, I woke up at 7am missing the first five fights of the UFC card so watched from then till 9pm that night thanks to Rizin with a three hour break in between. Got another UFC break after this weekend which sucks.

It's not dying in reality. :doctor


What you really are saying is that you're just going through your 'MMA feels like it's dying to me' phase. ;)

the way i look at it is, as long as the sport is around i'm happy. how many of the fights i watch will vary but as long as mma exists there will always be fights i'm interested in.

i apologize for the measured response which will create no arguments.

I was going through an old hard drive the other day and you what I found, aside from lots and lots of porn?

A bunch of old UFC videos and you know what? Some of those cards (and they were pretty much all PPV in those days) were utter gash especially the main and co main events.

UFC 96 Jackson vs Jardine and Carwin vs Gonzaga
UFC 95 Sanchez vs Stevenson and Hardy vs Markham
UFC 93 Henderson vs Franklin and Shogun vs Coleman
UFC 90 Bisping vs Leben and Jardine vs Vera
UFC 85 Alves vs Hughes and Bisping vs Day
UFC 78 Evans vs Bisping and Silva vs Alexander
UFC 76 Jardine vs Liddell and Griffin vs Shogun

Between 76 and 96 they put on 7 PPVs without a title fight. Imagine the shit they'd get if they tried to offer that shit as a PPV now. Perhaps the current fighters don't have the name recognition that those guys did but all that name recognition got us is an excuse to flog shitty main cards like that. In terms of quality of what's on offer, the UFC has, for the most part, never been better.

Now if you'll excuse me, I recently found a stash of porn.
