Anybody who sees "decline" in the show that was put on at 107 is a fool.

Every few months someone comes on and says the same thing that the UFC has Peaked or in decline or blabla but they somehow manage to survive. The next couple cards are injury proned but by this spring and summer there should be some great cards coming out.

Mark my words.
Dana White doesn't make decisions. Why is that so hard for you to understand.

In regards to the ufwwe: who gives a crap. I watch good mma events.

It's not supposed to be WWE: No Way Out. It's supposed to be a sport.

Grow up, kid.

The heavyweight division has sucked for a while. The ufc just needs some new blood to challenge some of these champions. I don't know why dana doesn't give fedor a one fight deal. Just imagine how much money the ufc would make if they would make a fedor vs lesnar match up.

plus bring some of the heavyweights back to ufc.. arlovski-barnett and sign fedor even for a one fight deal

You seem obsessed with pro wrestling, go complain about that.

What I saw last night was pure sport, capped by the greatest lightweight in the history of sport putting on a masterclass. When he left the UFC I saw that same fighter destroy the best lightweight any other organization had to offer.

Lol, how wrong was this guy.

Paul Heyman was right though, they did miss a major marketing opportunity with Kimbo. But you can't polish a turd.

Why market Kimbo when they can market a real killer like Junior Dos Santos.

Because Kimbo draws better than JDS. He was the #2 behind Brock as far as the mainstream audience attention goes.

I think the UFC will end up like My Space, they should sell in the next 1yr or 2 for ridiculous money..... The sport is too brutal to mainstream people therefore it's about at it's limits now.
