Don't miss the next Thunder Promotions event... See MC Hammer make his mma debut in baggy, silver pants. Man, you can't touch this!

Have you thought about doing an event at the BJCC Theater Monte?  It is very nice and holds 3,000.

We'll wait and see if Thunder actually reschedules... then, maybe we'll do a show there the day before.

If Thunder reschedules, I will make sure we run a story on the news about what happened the first time...encouraging viewers to think twice about buying tickets for the event.

Gawd, if either of them try another show in Birmingham I am going to RNC myself to death. WTF are they thinking? Hopefully Monte is in it to grow the sport here and not to make money. Because there is no money to be made outside the small venues. Sorry guys. And for the love of everything holy, stop it with the freak show mess. Unless you are going to book Cyborg Santos against some dude (freebie, Monte. You can use that if you want to) it ain't going to fool these rednecks. We DID have a guy with no arms or legs fight right? And how many were in attendance for that sideshow? few hundo?

 It's commendable for promoters to try to grow the sport in Alabama.  After saying that, I don't know what needs to happen in order to get fannies into the seats for the fights.  It seems like the bigger promotions have trouble marketing to the Alabama demographic for some reason.

What's keeping the folks at home?

It's not about marketing. We have a strange dynamic here as far as TV advertising goes and that's where most of these dudes spend their money. For instance. It would seem like a great idea for a promoter to air a commercial during The Ultimate Fighter on Spike. Problem? Only a small percentage of the greater Bham population has cable as opposed to satellite. So in the particular area of the show, only a silly small amount of people are even watching TUF on cable. Say 5,000 people (very conservative number) are watching and you get a traditional return of 2%. Well, that's not enough to have Coolio fight I guess.

^^ never thought of it that way. But I think it's the lack of blue jean fight shorts.

The number one show on local tv at primetime is CSI. In order to get a spot during that, you would have to pay more than the rest of the show would cost. It is seriously ridiculous. There is no way you could get enough people to respond to that ad to even pay for the ad much less the show. It's a lost cause until the fan base gets bigger in bham.

In your opinion, do you think a UFC will make a difference? of course, UFC will sell out with a big pull from Al, GA, FL, and TN. But that will not improve the mma scene here.

Not at all. It'll only entice would be promoters to put on a show. The difference will be that these guys cant pull any fans and the UFC can. So there will be a false impression that we COULD support a show and we can't.
