Default Re: Should there be manditory contenders in MMA?

I do agree that the UFC way is more fan pleasing. To bring up another hockey analogy, I remember the Devils in the 90's. Incredibly boring style of hockey, but they were the Champs. I didnt really care much to watch them, so I missed a lot of Cup games. If the Leafs had been there, I wouldnt have moved. If The Leafs win The Cup, I bet television records across Canada will be broken. More people would watch game 7 of The Leafs than watched the Moon Landing. But the Leafs usually suck and don't even make the playoffs. So I'd love to see them there, but they would not be a legitimate threat, challenge, or even challenger.

I guess I would prefer to see the athletes earn their shots in the Octagon, in the ring, on the ice, then behind the microphone, so to speak.
