Dana has stated in the past that he does not like 'flashy' entrances. Phone Post 3.0

Those big ramps and pyro set ups actually cut off a good portion of the arena, which means they can't sell as many tickets. Phone Post

Flashy entrances look out of place in the UFC. My favorite entrances are BJ Penn and Matt Hughes. Those guys had their signature songs that fit perfectly with their personality and really set the mood for the fans. Phone Post

Strikeforce HWGP entrances were sick with the huge video screen wraps that had the fighter with some meteors and weird end of the world animations behind them Phone Post 3.0

A lot of MMA died that day.  There is a reason we all say Pride never dies and still love everything about it to this day.  Trust me i dont think anyone would miss the UFC if Pride was around and UFC died.

I love some entrances (Like Genki Sudo), but sometimes people are forcing it. I remember Carlos Newton coming out in a suit dancing around. Rough to watch

entrance ramp was awesome. The fighters came off as much bigger stars with the ramp there.

The UFC always says they need new stars. Bringing the ramp back would help that. (although I know it's obviously not going to happen)

How about just elevating the walk in area? You wouldn't have to lose any seating but everyone in the arena could see the fighters come in AND it would get them away from all the jackasses grabbing at them. Sooner or later someone is going to get poked in the eye by a fan canceling a fight. How about losing a main event over it?

Kinda funny that those two are arguably the most well known mma fighters that became popular from the UFC..

I'm tellin you 'flashy' ring entrances would go a long way in the longevity of the UFC.
I agree, I could see Hector walking out to Freak by Silverchair 'cos "he's a freak....of nature". Phone Post 3.0
