What needs to happen is one single promotion needs to emerge as a rival to the UFC headed by a Billionaire that is willing to spend around 300 million dollars roughly around what the International Cricket Council (ICC) is investing to promote Cricket in the U.S.
Someone needs to have that kind of money and get a network deal, it doesn't need to be on a major network UFC proved that, but a deal with HBO would be great and a business model to really pump up your promotion brand name for example if you were to call your promotion The World Fighting League (WFL), really push that name creating cheap cool looking merchandise with that name. Then get stars 2 to 4 big names stars that people will recognize in the U.S.. Then just really make your self know bring in Pro Wrestlers, Boxers get those fans from other combats sports over watching you.
