 I don't get it. Why do people hope that an organization that has done more for the sport than anyone thought possible would fall apart or somehow become insignificant?

The UFC isn't going anywhere. If they did, MMA would suck for a long time.

 "If you can't recognize that Pride had a far superior product to the UFC"

lol @ "a real fan of MMA" trumpeting one org for being a "superior product". Personally, as a real MMA fan, I like fights and fighters, not "product".

Without the UFC there would be no big paydays and no free MMA on cable TV.

Some people are jealous.

Some people are angry that Dana turned them down for a job cleaning toilets at Zuffa HQ because they weren't qualified.

Some of the trolls are just kids who honestly have no clue about life.

Some people are probably employees of the competition.

MMA is destined to go the way of boxing.

A huge talent disparity over an infinite field of promotions, all because a few people on the internets think Dana has a potty mouth.

 "UFC doesn't suck, it's just no Pride......."

At last, crikey it's like getting blood out of a stone!

LOL @ your last reply gayday. Clearly, UFC supporters are JUST nuthuggers, and you're the real deal because you fight authority and keep the bastards honest! LMAO. Get the fuck out tryhard.

I like Japanese glitz and production too - when I'm watching Takeshi's Castle.

No true fan of MMA should hope for UFC to go out of business. Not because they are the best org or any other kind of nonsense. People should hope that the UFC doesn't go out of business because that would signal the death of MMA in North America.

You're question is analogous to "why be happy about bush leaving office?". Why? Because he's a corrupt, disastrous, inept, monkey. Like zuffa.

And it is zuffa that people want to die off. They pay off the ACs, journalists, and in sum, can't promote mma worth shit. Success isn't always indicative of value. Sometimes it just means you tricked a lot of people and paid a lot of people off.

Fuck zuffa.

Yeah, MMA was SO much better before Zuffa, when guys were weighing in on bathroom scales and fighting in bingo halls and national guard armories, with TV and PPV a distant blip on the horizon...DIE TROLL DIE!

Mister Brooks - Lmfao @ "we".

You're a bigger dick than any 10 tufnoobs combined, GayDay.

And contribute ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to this forum except for obsessive compulsive UFC bashing and Dana penis envy.

YOU, just like the Pride nuthuggers before you, AREN'T a fan of mma, fuckhead.

You belong at Sherhog.
Laugh MY ass off at this troll calling someone a "dick" "GayDay" "nuthugger" "fuckhead" in about three sentences and THEN saying THEY should be on Sherdog!

ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!

 " I also think that mismatches aside, Pride did way more to promote the sport as athletic rather than attitude."

That's pretty much the last thing I'd say about Pride. Pretty much their whole focus was on the "warrior spirit (attitude)" rather than the athletic or sport nature of the contest.

They didn't promote a "sport" at all, they promoted entertainment. If they were interested in sports, they would have drug tested; they would have had consistent weight classes from the beginning, and had real weigh-ins (sorry, I find it very difficult to believe that in the entire history of Pride, not one fighter ever came in over-weight -- until, of course they had an event in the US with an actual athletic commission overseeing things, and surprise surprise, right off the bat a star comes in 4lb over); they wouldn't have had the MAJORITY of their champions' fights be non-title fights.

"Isn't that sweet? Haulport...the OTHER boring, monotonous, johnny-one-note, broken fuckin' record parrot in here..."

So it's not just me. That's a positive.

Post more Mister Brooks, you're entertaining and a good counter to the juveniles.

 If you can't recognize that Pride had a far superior product to the UFC, then it is you who isn't a real fan of Japanese MMA.
