Well we should also consider that we change and we do not have the same passions we had years ago.
There are some things that we will like our whole life, but there are others that we will like for few years and then we will not be really interested anymore.
I remember when I used to think that WWE was so damn awesome, I remember when I was so much into chess that one game would determine my mood for the rest of the day, etc.
Years ago I also enjoyed MMA more than now. If Machida and Mousasi fought 2 or 3 years ago I would be so damn excited thinking "Oh Woooow! Tonight Machida and Mousasi are fighting!! That's awesome!!!!!!! Can't wait!" and last week it was "Wait? The Machida-Mousasi fight is even today or next week? Oh it is today! Nice."
Not only brazilians can do this stuff
Slowly over the last few years my friends stopped caring about the fights to the point where I usually watch them alone or record them and watch with my brother the next day. MMAtt and one or two others will occasionally come over if its a really big fight or GSP or Anderson are fighting but thats about it.
I've still been getting all the PPVs and watching all the free cards as well as TUF but lately not so much. I watched this last free card but the two previous ones I forgot all about. This next PPV will be the first one since Rashad/Thiago Silva I skip.
For me it's a few thing. One, a lot of my favorite fighters retired or are on the way out. Fedor, Forrest, Cro Cop, Marcus Davis, Jason MacDonald are all gone and Gray's chances of another title run are all but gone. I just don't have the same emotional investment in many of today's fighters.
Two, the cards are just so watered down. I used to want to see every main card fight and quite a few of the prelims. Now there's like 2 or 3 fights total I want to see.
Third, many of the fighters the UFC seems to push are not fighters I want to support. People like Rousey, the Diazes, Jon Jones and Chael Sonnen are not people I want my money supporting.
All of these things combined just seems to be making me care less and less for the sport.
