This is the only thing that pisses me off about mma. The fights make so much money and the fighters basically get the scraps of it. I think the title fights might generate like $200k at the most for the winning fighter. There's going to be a strike before long by all the fighters. Bet on it!

those of you touting boxings good upcoming fights need to thank MMA for it. . . its the competition they bring that is pushing boxing to be more competative.

That is very true.

A healthy MMA helps boxing. Competition is always good, it forces both sports to try their best to be as entertaining as possible.

4.7 Million Viewers Tune In To See First Ever UFC Title Bout On Spike TV
The first ever UFC title fight on Spike TV drew a staggering 4.7 million viewers on Saturday, September 8, making it the most watched UFC event ever and the most watched MMA event ever in North America. The “UFC 75” telecast emanating from the O2 Arena in London, England peaked at 5.6 million for the bout between UFC light heavyweight champion Quinton “Rampage” Jackson and PRIDE champ Dan Henderson. The fight card drew more Men 18-34 and Men 18-49 than anything else on television, broadcast or cable on September 8, including heavy sports competition from college football on ABC and ESPN, NASCAR on ABC, and the U.S. Open Women’s Final on CBS. “We're very proud to have added to the rich history of sports in London with this watershed mixed martial arts event,” said Dana White, UFC President. “Not only did UFC 75 showcase the bout that unified the 205 lb Pride and UFC titles, it did so in front of a record breaking crowd at the O2 Arena in London, and in front of the largest U.S. audience to ever tune in to an MMA card during its Spike TV telecast.”
LOL!! This doens't mean boxing is so far behind fool! How many people do you think would have watch DLH vs FLOYD if it were free on cable TV numb nuts?

Shit...2.2 Million people shelled out $55 for that boxing event!! This was free and had about 50% viewers...thats' not a lot considering it was FREE! Get a grip homie.

You are comparing ESPN fights to probably the most significant MMA fight in history?

ufc isn't the same catagory as boxing - it's more like entertainment e.g. wrestling and dancing competitions.

ufc is novalty....typical fight, a couple of badly aimed playground punches then grab the crap out of eachother and try to break arms and strangle the other guy.

boxing is dignified.

Damn...it's not that bad (UFC/MMA)....there are some very poorly put together events in MMA just like in Boxing. THere are things like "Tough man Comp" that is crap. But you need skill in boxing and in MMA to be successful at the highest level.

There is a little more depth than badly aimed playground punces and trying to pull each other to the ground. You gotta know that, unless you are just completely against MMA to which I say your Point of view is biased and not worth debating.

If you don't have anything against MMA then you just don't know what MMA is or what it takes to compete. I say the same to MMA fans who say you only need to know a few things to be good at Boxing.

Both MMA and Boxing offer great things to its fans. We see great talented and skilled fighters who dedicate their lives to a very brutal sport for our entertainment. What they do in a ring, Cage or Octagon is pretty amazing if you take the time to appreciated what they do.

UFC doesnt even compare to the great sport of boxing, they say how ufcs killing boxing but just this year Mayweather/Delahoya fight broke the record for ppv sales. Like somene said in a previous post ufc is comparable to wrestling, the only difference is the wwe is more fun to watch.
