Default Jeff 'the snowman' Monson signed by Korean promotion Road FC.

[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

I think this is a decent signing for the Korean promotion. It seems like there is a natural order where the older fighters are coming to Asian shows to fight some up and coming Korean fighters and the best fighters move to the UFC. So far Melvin Manhoef and Dennis Kang as well as older Japanese Pride fighters have been on the card.

Give it 4 years Road FC will be reasonably big. If I was an out of contract fighter I would consider these up and coming Asian promotions. I'm thinking specifically about Josh Barnett after Strikforce.

If a 15 year old kid with no money managed that I'd be impressed.

Monson is tough as nails unlike the supposed baddest man in the planet former Viking UFC champ.
Monson looked absolutely terrible against Aleks E, despite getting the W. His takedown shots looked more like straight up faceplants. Aleks fought like an idiot and paid for it. The only way Monson wins these days is if his opponents cooperate with his completely one dimensional game.

Zuffa might have a few good fighters but many more are over the hill. All their fighters seem to be fighting the same guys over and over.

All these Asian and European promotions is getting on a roll, with bigger names, new prospects, and growing popularity. The opposite of UFC.
Exacltly, this is why fighters like Aoki and Bilbiano chose to sign with OneFC instead of going to a promotion that may go bottom-up again

Its highly unlikely the UFC will go to the wall. Its too well capitalized now and has a monopoly. That said its current demise is entirely its own doing. You can't saturate the market reach critical mass, kill all notable opposition and expect fans to still remain interested. Get rid of Dana and MMA's problems will be solved. The sport doesn't need a megalomaniac at the helm.

Jeffs a throwback. Always been a big fan of him. He's how MMA fighters used to be. Fight on the drop of a hat. Il be watching.

Still making money though. Profits are down, but Im guessing they still make more than they lose. Who knows what the future will hold, but if Zuffa decided to cash out, there will be plenty of investors I think. The UFC brand is too big to fail, unless mma completely dies

MMA's going nowhere. It may become a niche sport again but the glory era is over. And the UFC killed it.
