There has been an Awakening...

Postby TheMadTitan » Thu Jul 12, 2018 6:11 am

Do you feel it? Is MMA's heart and soul being replenished? Is the sport making a comeback?

Thoughts please!

MMA is built on blood. The blood in the ring and the blood in our veins. The harder it pumps the harder it flows. War MMA. :heart:

I dont know what you mean exactly in terms of popularity it seems to be going down...Cormier vs. Miocic apparently did about as poor as Romero vs. Whittaker

Absolutely not. The Fertittas were at least fight fans, WME just wants characters to poach for big movie and TV deals.

Mma as a whole I would definitely say is on the rise.

Ufc pay per view buys is a tough gage since free streams online a so much easier to come by.. can't tell you the last time I bought one.

& w/WME rats running the show, I actually feel good about that.

MMA definitely gaining some serious main stream popularity.. betting are a huge help.

I do feel it. Just not the same way others are probably :lol: :lol:

ONE and Rizin are both starting to catch some momentum. That is exciting. Especially with adding in kickboxing, muy thai and now boxing fights onto the same card with mma fights.

While the UFC still puts on great fights, has a shit ton of awesome fighters, but the ppv numbers aren't where they would like them to be. Hopefully the new owners continue to market it like they do and Rizin and ONE can pick up some scraps that fall from the UFC.


This weekend's UFC and ONE events are both stacked and I am very excited for them both :tup:
Officially 8-2 in sig bets. *pats back* 5 time A league champion. :gold: :gold: :gold: :gold: :gold:

I guess that explains how eager they are to bring back Brock at any cost. :cash: :moneybag:

Yeah I agree with Meow other organizations are really starting to out on good shows.

Of all of the shows I have seen the last week I thought the PFL event was the best.

There is an overwhelming amount of combat sports available now that I cannot even watch everything that I am interested in.

As far as the US audience is concerned...they legitimately confuse me...just bleed fans that care more about talking trash and being on E more so than being fans of the actual sport.

What is going on in ONE is so much better. They even stopped calling it ONE Fighting Championship, because they want to view it as more of an art than just a fight.
