    I dont care how much he believes in the sport, their marketing/business strategies are just as bad as the UFC.
    The UFC will have problems maybe up the road with over saturating their market - look what happened to Krispy Kreame donuts when they over saturated the market.

    Alvin said it best: (where the hell has he gone anyways?....)

    "They are paying prime steak price for a hamburger."

    An undeserving hamburger with a bad attitude too imo.

    git.

    Shit that means the WFA has to sell around 10,000 PPVs just to pay Rampage.

    (Typically the company gets half of the PPV cost so out of a $40 OOV, they would get $20)

    As a fight fan, I respect them for paying the fighters so well but as a business man I just wonder what they are thinking.

    Anybody know what Bas Rutten's status is? Does he still have any fights left on his deal? Is he fighting again or is he back in retirement?

    if the WFA puts off a couple more PPVs like their last event they'll be filing for bankruptcy soon.
