    what are you guys's thoughts on the past two ufc ppv "Failures" money wise. if ufc went under...do you think that mma in general would go? or do you think it will continue on with bellator taking the top spot and just keep continuing?

    UFC is only "failing" due to a lack of "personalities" to push and terrible marketing.

    As soon as they remember people are here for the fighters, they'll get their act together.

    UFC used to have stars because spike would push them

    The ufc tries to make the brand bigger than the fighters and have failed their talent

    better marketing may never happen, its clear wme is the one causing all this. the min it sold everything went to shit..they fired everyone who was good at their jobs and now we get marketing posts like "whos gonna win the title fight..use your favorite emoji to describe it!"

    Haha, the new company is burying UFC...
  • crucadescrucades Its a Kinda Bullshit Joined: Posts: 11,455
    UFC has lucky charms and the long term fans (casuals) are leaving in droves because he's like a mirror that reflecks all the bullshit and he's the poster boy of a new company 4b in the red that will put money in front of actual good promoting.

    Then you have mighty midget who is worth the full sum total of fuck all. I feel sorry for this guy, he is amazing, superhumanly good for his class but no body gives a fuck. UFC can't poster boy a dude that collects stats in a dead end division where he's collect title defences like state security. Move up or accept not being accepted? Either way UFC half promoting this dude because they don't tell him to move up nor do they make him viable except have Rogan go on about his pfp value. Which realistically equates nothing.

    The ufc refused to push mighty mouse because dude treats fighting as serious and doesn't do shit talking

    Yeah the idea that DJ is the P4P GOAT gets funnier every time Rogan says it.

    As far as the UFC goes in general, I know that I have stopped giving a fuck as much since Jones went down and I imagine many other people have, too. Also, all of these interim belts haven't been helping things either.

    I think dj has to go up to bantum just to get respect. The only reason he left was they created flyweight

    I think he has leveled up so much since the fight with cruz

    DJ is small for flyweight. His opponents are already bigger than him. It's not like he's one of these dudes that's cutting a ton of weight. It's crazy that he has to go to bantamweight to get the respect he's already due.

    If he stays at flyweight he'll keep fighting nobodies and bantamweight cast offs.

    soooo, ive been given an opportunity to teach a few martial arts programs. One is an on site karate teaching program, where i run 6 weeks programs at different places such as private schools,ymca type places ect. But also i potentially have the chance to run a jiu jitsu program. Now for me id only do this as a no gi program most likely...i dont wanna step on my head instructors feet in bjj and figured no gi is the safest way to do this. but what do i call it that would allow me to keep it pretty separate from brazilian jiu jitsu type area?

    I'm not saying I wouldn't want to him fight a top flight bantamweight but he's going to be dealing with guys that outweigh him by 30lbs. I remember Faber being early 170 and fighting at 135.

    Just call it submission grappling/wrestling

    That is pretty much what nogi is

    My old Karate teacher just called it "ground fighting" lolol. Shout outs to Kenpo and the Black Karate Federation!

    But for real, nogi or submission wrestling is fine. Fuck the bjj purists lol.

    She is the one always dressing up as wonder woman right? Being a female fighter and getting implants is bold as fuck.
