I think that's just the median age, no? Anyhow, I'm 42 and have followed it since it's inception....actually even before since Rickson was discussing it before it started on the seminar trail. I have never stopped following it and never will. Fuck those stats.

Wasa-B - Already past that bro and u know I'm still into it ;p

Main demographic just means that's the age group that watches the most

Its the demographic considered to have the most "disposible money".

Coveted by all.

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


You better not leave motherfucker.

The 18-34 demographic needs to get a TUE. Some TRT could extend that span another 10 years. Phone Post

I would imagine that demographic to change real soon. A lot of the faces are becoming older and let's face it, most of the true mma fans are older guys. I'm not taking anything away from the younger fans by saying that either, hell, I'm 24 myself. But the bottom line is I think those demographics are solely based on the statistics of the modern, younger generation's interests and tune ins/ppv buys, etc..

I expect this to change, as we are all getting older. Phone Post

beatbum - 

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!


What was your substitute?

 

 

 

 

 

To Everyone else-You guys cracked me the fuck up, Vote ups for all you funny old farts!!!

 

ps-I hate 2 stream pee. never had that problem when I was younger.

Forever12er -  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

I'm interested in this as well.

Well they've been able to glean a lot of this info from TV demo numbers, but I'm not sure how else they've done it.

I'm only posting in this thread since I am 32 and this is the first time on here, that I haven't felt like the old guy at the club.

 

 

Carry on, you fossils.

40 next month. Damn. :( Never saw MJ play ball but at least I can say I saw GSPs' first UFC fight live. VS. Karo.

I remember watching that live and thinking damn that guy is huge!! I hope Karo can beat this bully. Who'd of thought that non English speaking dude (at the time)would be the GSP we all know today. In MMA terms, that's a pretty good memory for my old ass.

Speaking of the old days...hahaha..How far we've come. Thought I'd give you guys a little flashback at the way things were before the mainstream explosion.

Some stories for ya:

In the lobby of the Mandaley Bay.

Frank Mir warming up. Really. You could almost be a douche and ask for an autograph..but he looked like he didn't want to be bothered. So we just watched him warming up.

Talked to Rico Rodriguez. He was just chilling solo. No one knew who he was. LOL

Across the way, (also chilling solo) Chuck on his cell. Should have said hello to him.

So at a cafe in hotel (before fights) This young dude (say 11-12 years old) grabs an empty seat next to me and my brother. He starts talking to us..he says my brother is fighting in the UFC tonight and is going to smash some no-namer tonight. He's very cocky and proud to brag about his brother. It was kind of funny and cool at the same time.

Turns out...he's Karos' little brother. And by coincidence, I saw him and his father emptying out of the events center after the fights' and he had tears in his eyes. Was kind of touching. Felt bad for him.

Watched Lee M. submit Murray and talk mad shit to Tito afterwards. Hilarious. Got a pic with Tito and he signed our tickets. Which is funny because he wasn't even on the card. Say what you will about Cheeto, but you got to hand it to him...he was a great self promoter in the early days before it was common and pointless.
