id be that black woman that sits next to bruce buffer every event. I have no clue what she does but she often is recording fights on her phone and has imo one of the best seats for every event. shes never talking but has the headphones on.

Do an internship, see how everything works there and then probably quit and do sth. else 

So use it as a learning experience and use what you learned in different areas of life?

You wouldn't want to actually work for the UFC?

no. mostly because I wouldnt want egg as my boss

Hire screaming Pride FC lady to replace Bruce Buffer for an ESPN fight night and see what happens. Social media would explode for a minute.

I’d enjoy commentating. I would be completely non bias regardless of whose fighting. And I’d throw in a few catchphrases so I could become famous like Goldy

I would be Dana's part time advisor.    Of course, my recommendations would be dictated by a fan mindset rather than an entrepreneurial one so I would get fired within a couple of months.

 

Preliminary recommendations:

 

(1) Get rid of WMMA or put them on a woman only card

(2) Quality > quantity of fight cards.  In other words, I would rather watch a stacked card that I am excited about every month rather than mediocore weekly cards and PPVs with only one good fight.

(3) Cut out all of this interim nonsense unless someone is actually out for > 1 year

(4) Cross promote for real superfights

(5) Hire a fashion consultant for Bruce Buffer and a tailor for Rogan so that he could wear shirts that actually fit

(6) A bit more meat on the ring card girls. 

1. Nope. Too sexist. Would hurt the brand.

2. Nope. Counter productive to brand growth.

3. Nope. Lose revenue w less title fights.

4. Fuck no never giving Coker shit.

5. Meh. Fire Stephen Smith first.

6. Nope. Retire them. Too sexist. 
 

I wouldn’t mind a management role.

 

 

Whats wrong with Coker?

 

If I work for the UFC, fuck Scott Coker. Straight up. Hahaha

Start up UFC Strikeforce cards for burgeoning talent.

Take a guy like Zabit two years ago. We all knew he was a talent, rather than rush guys like him, give them main event five round fights on a new UFC Strikeforce Card with more upcoming talent and exciting fighters making debuts on the undercard all in the same weight Winner of the main event is hyped up as getting a shot against a ranked fighter on a numbered card if he wins. Winners of fights 2 & 3 fight each other at the next UFC Strikeforce main event in that weight >

People aren’t excited because no proper marketing is done for exciting up and comers. The current matchmaker is shit too, he needs firing.

We all wanna watch new fighters come in, we just don’t want them on the co main of Fight Night and numbered cards until you’ve given us a reason to be excited about them

Fights 125lbs or under only get on PPV for a title fight. An exception could be made for a number one contender bout. I'd also do this for women's bouts but allow the odd women's fight onto a PPV card so I'm not accused of sexism.

Fewer fight cards and try to schedule an event the week before a PPV.

I'd still have a Reebok like deal but all the money to go to the fighters and fighters are allowed a sponsor logo on their shorts so long as there's no clash.

Matchmaker would be fun. It would be cool to give a title shot to the people that actually earn one....and not make it a popularity contest.

1-3 have too much money tied up into it for that to ever happen
