Who gives a **** about Showtime, move it somewhere else because at the moment it is a sideshow with no credibility. Cormier is on twitter everyday saying he doesn't know who he is going to fight.
I am a boxing fan that is by no means saddened over seeing an mma company fail, but what you put in your first paragraph would have been the thing to do, and what should have been done. People fought to get to the UFC, and youre right, would have put UFC on a bigger pedestal.
