I'm comparing the UFC to other professional sports because that's how an organization that says it has the best fighters in the world should be operated. Instead by cutting guys like Shields, Fitch, Okami because they are boring they are more focused on being entertainment then sport.
Way to much focus on the difference in the sports and not the actual business model which was the point
I focused on what you wrote. If you wanted to discuss a business model and compare, then you should of done so. We the fans are only ASSUMING as to why certain fighters get cut or don't get cut.
There are many paths to freedom, not all are peaceful
