But Josh doesn't have the power anymore, because the UFC don't NEED him. Their HW division is filling out, and Barnett is on the downslide of his career and is coming off a bad loss.

And what do you expect of Dana and Zuffa? Do you expect them to encourage and help competition to their brand? Maybe give a few of their big-name fighters to the smaller promotions, to help them get a leg up so they can take viewers and advertisers and media coverage away from the UFC?

Funny, when PRIDE had all the best fighters and was getting 50,000 people into the Tokyo Dome while the UFC was bleeding money, getting denounced as "human ****fighting" in the Senate by John McCain and most of the way down the road to extinction, everything was great in the MMA world according to you.

Honestly scurla, you have no sense of perspective at all. Why are you so bitter? Just sit back and enjoy the fights. They're easier to watch on TV now than they have ever been.
