Sure to an extent... it's bad business to complete ignore the trends of what your paying customer base is doing. Do they love their customer and have a fondness for them nope... but what big business does.

Same thing. UFC does things however the hell they want, not however fans (hardcore, casuals, who pay, who don't pay) want.
To suggest that they actually want to perform poorly is a stretch even by your anti Dana rheotoric standards.
The problem here is that they want to make shitty entertainment and want you to pay a lot of money for that.
How successful would a card be without... money to pay the fighters no matter on how many fans show up or buy the ppv? a venue that is paid for? a network tv deal or ppv? the equipment to broadcast? adverting, media relations and PR?
Fighters are the ones that make money to the UFC, fighters are the ones that make MMA the sport it is.
So obviously they have the rights to be happy or unhappy about something. Because while their retarded fatty boss is sitting on the computer jerking off or insulting random people on Twitter, these fighters are training like animals knowing that their next fight may be the last one.
You can rant about twitter and all that other stuff.. but to pretend that there isn't a very large amount of work required on the UFC's end to make their cards happen is blind. Fighters put on the show but without the money and logistics to back them there is no show.
In turn then can you really complain about a product that you are not purchasing ?
Ok I will pay for every PPV for the next 6 months. What will change? The only thing that will change is that I am going to lose about 300 dollars, but the product will be exactly the same.
If you want fighter pay to go up for example shouldn;t you be contributing to their revenue stream?
Lets be honest here you've never had any intention of purchasing a ufc event and never will. There has been plenty of PPV cards worth the charge that you never paid for.
How about they improve a lot their product? Only then many people will consider paying for it.
And in turn they owe you nothing either I can understand bitching and moaning if you paid for something and the product didn't deliver, but you go off on rants with no actual investments in things. One would think you were being forced to read Dana white interviews and watch UFC events.
And we do not owe the UFC a damn thing neither. Fuck them!
Your definition of "very shitty level" leaves a lot to be desired.
I can not go out there and make my job in a very shitty level and then expect people to pay me tons of money.
