After November of next year, I'll be 35yrs old.

 

UFC Age Demographic is 18-34.

 

Do they project that I'll be burnt out or no longer interested by then?

 

 

How many 35+yr olds do we have that watch the sport and keep up with it?

 

 

 

Is this something that the more I know and learn about the bad part of the business, I lose intrest?

 

 

 

 

I see and remember Pride in a much more glorious light as the days go by and I wonder, is the end near?

:P

Yep. I'm 38. I don't watch UFC, MMA, frequent this forum, teach BJJ or anything having to do with the sport any longer.

Pretty soon Arnold Palmer will be your new Dana White, Bob Barker will be your Bruce Buffer, Tim McCarver will be your Joe Rogan, Angie Dickinson will be your new Arianny, and Wilford Brimley will be your go to guy for diabeetus medicine.

I believe Dana should apply a "senior discount" to PPV's for those above the age demographic.

It sucks to know that the sport will continue after you die.

Yep, that's aro0und the age I got bored with it and stopped keeping up. I'll be 42 in april. Started watching in 1995. Funny that now you can say something like "Guess what, GSP is going to fight BJ Penn next UFC!" and I'll get all excited while having no idea if they already fought and you're messing with me. And the worst part, I might have even seen it!

36 here. 

The good part:  I can legally sleep with a chick half my age. 

The bad part:  I'm now invisible to those chicks :(

I think you're misunderstanding the idea of demographics.  18-34 males is what everyone targets because they're the ones with the most money to spend.  It doesn't mean you can't like MMA anymore just that they're not going to be trying to cater to you as much.

My dad has been a sports fan for over forty years. He dropped them all for the one where people beat each other up.

I was thinking of this today. How do they know how old someone is from a ppv number? Is it cause that's who's buying all their shirts or something? Phone Post
