Without ranking the whole thing turns into a slippery slope.
You don't even know if your champion is necessarily the best fighter without a ranking system.
The UFC could set up any number of rational systems that would be pretty difficult to manipulate for the sake of making good television. Problem is, that doesn't guarantee good championship matchups, but at least the most deserving fighter would get his shot, and him being the most deserving would be justified.
He's right.. It's not really more like WWE with real fights, not really a sport in the same way boxing pretends to be.
