1/ Poor judging...making a mockery out of many decisions...seemingly almost every show.
2/Steroids and other illegal drugs
3/ Shady fly by night organizations failing to pay their fighters...australia and D.R.......
4/Dana White....too much swearing, too many broken promises to fighters...promised title shots etc...cutting fighters maybe too early...
5/Strikeforce...their inability to make any reasonable fights that actually mean anything, turning their titles into meaningless scraps of metal.
6/Lack of significant pay structure...yes many fighters are making a decent living...even a very good living, but many others are only making 5-10 K per fight...some even less.
7/Other.......feel free to add anything else you may feel is a huge negative on the sport
I was hoping to add a poll to this, but it didn't allow me to...mods????
Dana White should remember that he is a rich powerful guy and shouldn't throw all his weight at a poor struggling fighter and embarrass the hell out of them...He is becoming an embarrassment to the sport as is Joe Rogan and his sidekick that likes to yell out "IT IS ALL OVER" A little more professionalism all around is what is needed..
