    -Too many PPV: 2-3 Per month is way too many. Fight cards used to be stacked with like 4 or 5 good, well known fights. Now were lucky to get one per card. (see ufc 149).
    I like seeing up and coming talent but not when they are 2 or 3 of the 5 fights on the main card...

    -Top fighters dont fight enough: with the exception of JJ, all big name fighters just fight like 2 times a year. (Everyone should be like Jeremy Horn haha)

    Im sure ive got lots more but this is all i can think of right now lol

    YEAH! Thinking is stupid!

    Damn, how could I forget about the USA chants????

    I mean, in the Fedor-Monson fight, fans were screaming "Russia!! Russia!!". It is as pathetic as chanting USA!! USA!!, but damn, it was the only fight where I have heard Russia chants.
    In UFC it happens everytime an american fighter is fighting a foreign.

    Now that I remember, during the Couture-James Toney fight fans were not screaming "Randy!! Randy!!", they were screaming "UFC!!! UFC!!!"

    Decent list. I would replace early stoppages with the judging, which is actually more of a problem with the athletic commissions though it does effect the UFC.

    I've always said I'd much rather see an early stoppage than a late stoppage. They can be kind of a bummer sometimes, but meh.

    In no particular order:

    When people refer to refs as UFC refs. Like the UFC employs their own refs. These guys ref for every org. (not really the UFC's fault but it's irritating)

    Drinking on tuf. Shut up and fight already.

    Dan hardy losing four in a row and not being cut. Out grappled by GSP and AJ, out struck by condit, out struck and out grappled by Lytle.

    The UFC hype machine and the people who subscribe to it.

    That stupid theme song. Not only does the song just plain suck but the tag line "as real as it gets"?!?!?!? I beg to differ. War, mass genocide, fighting without; rules, coaches, cutmen, refs, time limits. That's as real as it gets.

    5. TUF - it's a product placement frat-party at best these days.

    4. Dana White's attempts to make himself a bigger star than the guys doing the work and constant trashing of both "his" fighters and those from other promotions ("Do you wanna be a fucking fighter?" No, dickhead I just travelled all the way here and got my head pounded on for fifteen minutes so that you could come in here and give your stupid ass catch-phrase....can I go home now?).

    3. The PPV business model- I know it is working and has worked...I get it. I just hate it. You're asking for $54.95 to watch 1-2 fights that are worth mentioning (even though I thought a few were solid cards). I hate it with boxing and I hate it with MMA. It gets even more annoying when the UFC brass bashes fans and says they don't know what they're seeing or talking about. Even if that's true in some cases, fans pay for a product.

    2. The UFC's (and US rules in general) lack of a system to stop the "human blanket" approach. I'm sure some folks will absolutely nuke me for saying this but I still love the ring and yellow card system. It allows fans to see different techniques and REQUIRES fighters to constantly look for a finish or improvement in position.

    1. A real ranking system; not the "flavor of the month club." I recently told Sakara that I didn't really care about having a clear title picture; that wasn't entirely true. I think the top 5 need to be clear and concise with title shots given to those deserving rather than those in favor. I love slugfests and catchweight battles but bringing in guys and giving them an immediate shot or after one fight, it's ridiculous (unless it's a reigning champion from another org. in a "unification" style fight like Reem, Shields, etc.)

    one thing that REALLY annoys me is that at some venues when they chant U-S-A when both guys are fucking American but one is of latino or asian decent.

    also the lack of stalling calls and how could this article not mention the horribleness that is MMA judging?

    it was a good read thouhg all of the top 5 things are very true however the booing when the fight hits the ground depending on the venue
    Did you just say Jon Anik is better than something? He's on the Gus Johnson level of sport knowledge. He's just as annoying too. The difference between Gus and Jon is that Gus will try to make you believe he is an expert. Anik is terrible. Florian as his partner doesn't help.

    I don't mind the flag thing. But I most certainly do not enjoy the patriotic chants and booing of fighters from other countries that is prevalent in American shows, as it is far, far more disrespectful then a symbolic piece of cloth. Sure, it does happen in other countries but to me it is a very low-brow form of pride which I do not like.

    I also dislike the whole USA thing for 2 americans. For some reason it also bothers me when a guy has his countries flag with him post fight. I guess I thinl its disrespectful to the country that is currently hosting you, and allowing you to earn a paycheck. Not the most rational complaint, but a complaint none the less.
