I understand a fighter having to ďBring something to the tableĒ and I believe over the years, there are plenty of fighters that have brought plenty to the table, but Zuffa keeps going for the low budget fighters, just to fill the card. MMA is NOT new anymore. Look at how many forums there are, how many web sites, how much information there is about MMA
Look, I know I donít have to pay for the PPV if I donít care for the fight card (and I know the Tito v Sham is NOT on PPV), but thatís not my point.
There is just so much more the UFC has to offer. Iím not saying one organization is better than another, because each has its own way and venue.
What I am saying is that the UFC could be sooooooooo much better than it is by bringing MORE ranked fighters (and it doesnít matter whoís forum is ranking them) to the card. They can afford it.
If we, the fan, canít state our feelings on the quality of the fight card on these forums, then I guess Iím missing the boat, and better go back to washing dishes.
At the chance of repeating myself, Iím NOT a UFC v Pride guy. I like both. I do think the UFC could be a whole lot better.
The only thing I have to add is that it seems that the payouts are smaller in the UFC as compared to PRIDE. If they were to raise the payouts, I think you would be surprised at who would show up at a UFC event.
Pay them, and they will come.
