UFC might be making more money but the long term strategy is far from being where the company wants it to be who acquired it. I think they borrowed a ton of money to purchase the UFC and it may take another decade or longer to recover from. Whereas for example Tony Khan hasn't made a real profit yet with AEW but he didn't borrow money to start the wrestling company. It's more of a toy or hobby to mess around with to him. I thought the Canelo vs Plant fight was better than the fights on the UFC card but i didn't expect it prior to watching. UFC's product is more compared to WWE because it's copied the business model. I think UFC's product isn't as good as it used to be. The PPVs may be better than boxing but i think overall they've started to diminish in quality due to all of the Fight Nights they've been churning out. I think they could stack the cards better like in previous years. Instead of 2 or 3 good fights they could have 5 good fights with better matchmaking and less filler events. I didn't care for Namajunas rematch and i thought Covington vs Usman 2 wasn't as good as the first fight. Gaethje vs Chandler wasn't bad but it was just a bar room brawl. Gane vs Ngannou is interesting but i personally don't care to see McGregor vs Poirier 4 or McGregor vs Chandler. It won't really make any difference or answer any questions we don't already know. Poirier vs Oliveira is a decent fight but style wise i don't think it's particularly exciting. I just think there's more talent coming through in boxing and more potential exciting matches to come through in the future. UFC has some good divisions but they're starting to simmer out a bit. Volkanowski vs Holloway 3 Usman vs Edwards 2 Covington vs Masvidal Gane vs Ngannou - Stipe to fight winner Prochazka vs Rakic Poirier vs Oliveira Adesanya vs Whitaker 2 Sterling vs Yan 2 Moreno vs Figueiredo 3 McGregor vs Chandler or Gaethje or both. Khamzat Chimaev vs anyone in the top 10 is worth watching. Islam Makhachev vs anyone in the top 10 is worth watching. Alex Pereira if he keeps winning and goes up the rankings maybe he can get a shot at Adesanya. Amanda Nunes could fight Kayla Harrison if the UFC signs her. That's a big fight for women's mma. The rest i won't care to tune into watch because it's mostly filler fights. I might watch them but i'm not too bothered if i miss them or not. I think in nearly every UFC weight division it's pretty much confirmed outside of two divisions or three divisions who the top guy is. Usman has cleaned up his division. Adesanya is think is comfortably ahead of everyone else. Nunes has no competition. Shevchenko has no competition in her division. Volkanowski is the top guy in the division and only maybe Holloway and Ortega could potentially beat him if given another chance. Light heavyweight is missing Jon Jones and is still in a bit of limbo. UFC will be all rematches soon or much more filler fights with relative unknowns and recycled fighters being pushed as stars again when they've lost dozens of times. Masvidal and Nate Diaz are the equivalent of Dereck Chisora at this point. I'm no longer that interested to watch them fight. I'll watch them but i wouldn't ever make a bet on them to win these days. I think boxing has much more of a chance to hit a homerun with a star coming through who could reach the level at least of Canelo in the future than UFC does finding a fighter with Conor's star quality. It's harder to build a star in UFC by talent alone based on the dynamics of the business given it's easier to lose. Mayweather and Conor McGregor are anomalies and the majority won't ever reach their star level. Paddy Pimblett has some hype around him but i think he's gonna get knocked out before he gets going similar to Darren Till. If Darren Till kept winning he had potential to be a bigger name than he is. McGregor was fortunate he was in the right place at the right time on his rise through UFC. He didn't have it easy but he had it easier than a lot of MMA fighters coming up through the ranks.
