Agreed. WFA seems like they are on the right track, and they have made themselves more of a recognizable name lately, but they have a lot of catching up to do to get to where the UFC is. Realistically, no one is going to challenge the UFC for the top spot on the totem pole anytime soon. The gap between 1st and 2nd and 2nd and third places in MMA organizations are shrinking all the time, but the UFC just has too much of a head start, and is too consistently better than the other organizations to have to start worrying yet.
