I recently attended the UFC on Fox Sports 3 event at All Phones Arena, Sydney.

At various times during the show, notable UFC identities would come over to the barrier to sign autographs and get photos with fans.

I note at one point Arianny Celeste (UFC Ring Girl) and Royce Gracie (UFC Hall of Famer) were at the barrier. The que of fans for Arianny was about 50 deep, while Royce was left talking to himself. Have the Australian fans forgetten about the roots of the sport? What does this observation say about Australian fans?

I think this shows the changing demographic of MMA fans. Back in the pre TUF days before the ufc was widely popular the main fanbase was practicing martial artists or people from some other type of combat sports background.

In those days people used to wonder what will it take to make the sport 'mainstream'. Most of the current crop of fans (those in the Arianny line) are following the UFC because it is widely popular now and they just follow the current trendy thing to do. (snow boarding, parkour, WWE etc)

It remains to be seen whether these types of fans will stick with the UFC for the long term.
