Default ufc getting abit desperate now?

sonnen vs jones is perfect example that the ufc is starting to panic a little imo, lower than expected ppv numbers and shite tuf numbers has caused dana to put a fighter into a title shot where in his last 3 fights he lost 2 title fights and edged a disputed decision. Now to me it looks like dana is hoping the sonnen trash talk will generate a few ppv numbers because the fight on paper just doesnt sell.

Now im not a boxing loving ufc hater(i enjoy them both) but ufc are really starting to dilute their ppv quality. 3-4 years ago every ppv had a mega fight at the top of the card but now every fighter going in the ufc is a potential title challenger, the big sell of ufc used to be quality of card and best against the best but its starting to go the way of boxing abit now with alot of unworthy ppv cards

sort it out

No, JJ v Sonnen belongs on The TUF and PPV..... This is how you build stars outta fighters, this is how you sell more PPVs, and this is how you setup a superfight between JJ and Anderson Silva

This would be brilliant if they were setting up a JJ vs. Silva fight...but they're not. GSP/Anderson is the route they're going and I don't blame them.

Morning Report: Anderson Silva cracks open door to Jon Jones superfight, would have to be non-title catchweight


By Shaun Al-Shatti on Oct 19, 8:00a

"My weight class is 185, my belt is of that weight class," Silva said (translation via Bloody Elbow). "But people are talking so much about this, and we are employees of the UFC. Of course, I could be saying that I don't want it, but what if (Jones) goes out and accepts the money Dana is proposing for him to fight? It will be hard (not to accept it). It's not the money that motivates me to fight, I fight because I like it. So, I don't know. I wouldn't like (to fight him). But if it's going to happen, it would have to be at a catchweight. The belt shouldn't be at play. I already have mine."
They are...... GSP is getting his ass whipped.

If Jones is fighting Sonnen as a keep busy fight and then fight Anderson i would be good with it but then what would happen with GSP/Silva? Personally i would like to see GSP/Silva more

GSP Silva can still be a good fight, with Silva the favorit. assuming Silva wins that, that would make Silva Jones huge.

TUF is not focused on the fight at the end but the show. Jones and Sonnen is going to be a fun show to watch.

It was exactly the same thing with Bisping and Miller. No one expected Miller to win but both were good on the show.

Sonnen doesn't deserve this fight at all. Shits like WWE. Whoever has the biggest mouth gets a shot?
