Rather see those guys in the deep talent pool. My opinion on this matter has changed recently. It sucks that we may never know how good some of these guys really are. Phone Post

I've been to two Bellator. One in Atlantic City and one in Cleveland. It's a good show. Felt like a local show.

But lets not pretend these guys are anything but many levels below the UFC. Phone Post

Yeah! Bellator is a competitor to the UFC if they have gotten to the level of having paid posters. Phone Post

Now the CSAC might be different, but in the Midwest if you give away more than 3% of your total ticket sales you have to pay tax on those tickets. So giving tickets away can actually cost the org money.

Reed, I'm not the biggest Bellator fan, but I have a bunch of friends that fight in that org.

The fact they can't sell tickets to save their life is not new news. It's fact...go to a show. It's crazy how few people are there.

The point is every so often an org pops up and puts on a number of shows. Instead of just accepting them for what they are people quickly jump in and say "I can see these guys giving the UFC a run for their money." It starts creating a pass or fail environment for them. And guess what they have a way better chance of failure than success.


Here is the simple truth. The day the UFC is no longer the top of the food chain, mma will have been on its way down for a while before that.

I just wish people would hold off from saying "these guys are going to give the UFC a lot of competition" whenever an org pops up. It creates unneeded pressure on the org itself and ends up causing them to burn too hot to soon. Phone Post

So there should be no mma organizations except the UFC?

*cringe so hard, my eyebrows hurt* Phone Post

Who said that?

All the top guys belong in the UFC.

Are you also longing for the glory days of the USFL?

Who is Chandler going to fight if they lose Alvarez?

Lots of folks who do not understand that there is different business models.

Bellator is doing made for TV MMA, it is not all about putting asses in seats for them.

I must need my eyes checked, because it looked pretty full. This guy backs it up: RJCliffordMMA: Two more undercard fights left and the 5,000-person capacity Bren Events Center is 75% full. All sections filling up with a couple openings. MMA Supremacy is a financial insider for the sport, unlike ZuffaLogic, and he seemed to think it was a good turnout.

Speaking of ZuffaLogic, they were giving away some tickets from what I heard, but as always you have to spin to make other orgs look bad. It was nothing like WSOF from what I've read. Pretty standard for MMA. UFC were giving away tickets outside the show I went to in Milwaukee.

It was a sparse crowd during the early prelims, but then again when isn't that the case for UFC shows and California sporting events.

Stop being UFC fans and start being MMA fans.
