During the show, it put a graphic on the screen claiming that 'Smackdown', the company's Friday night show on the Syfy network, had more than 10 times the amount of social media reaction on Nov. 16 as The Ultimate Fighter, which aired later the same night on FX.

The WWE regularly puts graphics on its broadcasts talking about beating other sports properties like the NBA and Major League Baseball in television ratings, social media engagement or web site hits. UFC is often mentioned within a grouping, but rarely does something on the graphic come across as a direct putdown in these "Did You Know" bumpers that play on WWE's shows on Monday and Friday.

Both companies, for obvious reasons, will publicly state they are not competitors. For UFC, a company looking for credibility with the public as a major sport, it makes no sense for any comparisons to be made with pro wrestling which does far stronger television ratings. For WWE, it is the dominant force in its world, but when doing talks about business with media and other corporations its executives for the past seven years have been constantly asked questions about the UFC.

"the WWE regularly puts graphics on its broadcasts talking about beating other sports"

Wretard-Wrestling is not a sport. It's dumb to mention MMA and Wretard-Wrestling in the same sentence. Wretard-Wrestling should be comparing themselves to Dancing With The Stars, it's far more accurate (although, I guess competitive dance is a sport). Maybe they should compare themselves to some retarded day-time soap-opera?

KboyFresh - The WWE never wanted to associate its brand with MMA or Zuffa. Early on, it was Zuffa all along who attempted to poach fans from the WWE and expose them to the UFC.

The lead-in for the first season of TUF was none other than WWE Raw. Keep in mind that TUF was a blatant rip-off of a show called WWE Tough Enough. Remember the Zuffa television show "Octagon Girl Search"? Yeah, it was a blatant rip-off of WWE Diva Search. When Brock Lesnar came to the UFC, it was Dana White who begged the WWE to allow him to use footage of Brock's pro-wrestling exploits to promote the so-called sport of MMA. The result was Zuffa airing commercials of Brock "powerbombing" WWE wrestlers in an effort to promote their brand.

The close association between the UFC and the WWE is the doing of Zuffa.


There is no close association. They have nothing in common. One is a sport, and one is a national embarrassment meant for 12 year old children.

Can you imagine a grown man watching and enjoying pretend-wrestling?

Comparing Wretard-Wrestling to the cinema now? How embarrassing...

Question: Have you ever seen an actual book in real life? And no the autobiography of Hulk Hogan doesn't count (it's for Wretard-Wrestling fans, so you know it's all pictures).

Sure the UFC is an embarrassment, but calling it pretend is going too far, IMO.

So embarrassing. If you're more than 12 years old, you ought to be embarrassed.

Go watch monster trucks or something at least. Have some self respect.

Here comes the chair shot. Don't worry, its fake. The chair is real, the impact is real and your skull is real. I guess its okay though. Since I told you it was coming...the whole situation became "fake". The audience is real and the dollars are real. The homoerotic element is there, but its so obvious that speaking out against it only leads me to believe you're super worried about being gay yourself. It's a performance art. You're you and America is America. Nothing is more American than Wrestlemania. Phone Post
