3 tiers of UFC fighters and why they can't get their shit

Postby DeceptaCon » Thu Jul 12, 2018 3:44 pm

together

Tier 1

Fucking animals that will step in on short notice and fight any weight any where and fucking bring it every time, professionals.

Tier 2

Younger hyper athletic super skilled freaks of nature that constantly miss weight, pull out or just don't have the same killer mindset as their elders

Tier 3

The chosen talented hype train models that are put in place to attract a certain demographic and ultimately undermine the integrity of the sport.

The UFC is starting to lose all of their Tier 1 fighters due to age, PED suspensions and retirement so their business model must adapt to accommodate the Tier 2 fighters or else the business model will not be sustainable. Tier 3 fighters lack substance and longevity which is necessary to build a brand for 20 years.

My point is the UFC is fucked!

Tier 4: Fighters that have achieved a certain goal in their career which they believe gives them the right to indulge in matchmaking fuckery without realizing the world doesn’t actually owe them anything and that everything will come crashing down at some point in their life when they find out there's no such thing as special sauce and they’re just plain mayo like everyone else.

Need to go back to it being a spectacle, not a sport. Healthy does of tier 1 and 2 fighters.

This negative view doesn't take into account the thousands of fighters training at MMA gyms all over the world. Also not all martial arts are even represented yet. There are a few more tricks that can be used in the cage that no one has done yet. So if there are hundreds of good fighters out there and the UFC can't take advantage that's their problem.
