Yeah there are but how many of them are on a big network?? Yes we die hards know them, not the casual fight fan. Many can't see past the UFC, so yes it is something that can accompany the UFC as far as getting out to larger scale audience goes.
It's a win win for fight fans, in having variety. Still, got some good all action fighters in, Spong brings world class striking, Miguel Torres was a stud in the WEC, throw in Arlovski, ok terrible chin, but comes to fight. Got a few Gracies in, so be interesting to see what dimension they can bring along with the class BJJ skills. They got this kid, Tyson Nam, who is a hot prospect at Bantamweight.
Will be interesting to see how this 10 sded cage will work with fight dynamics. May encourage more action in the centre perhaps?
Got tournament format coming too, that was always great in Pride and old UFC. It's a good chance for up and coming fighters to get some exposure, since it's not always easy breaking in to the UFC. So fighters need somewhere they can showcase their talents. They know a good showing will boost their stock. So as fans, we may see the fighters really bring it.
