I can see the UFC going back to ESPN and trying to sell them more events mid contract, and attempting to step away from PPV almost completely.
    I believe they (UFC) have committed to 12 PPV's in 2019
    We must reject the idea that every time a law's broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions.

    Yeah, I think you're right, but they really should be re-thinking the strategy if it's gonna pay less than they are making from a mediocre TV event. I just wonder if ANYONE is actually running the show. Dana may be the face, but I doubt he is all in on looking at real change in strategy, he's only doing the same thing he's done since day one...….who is keeping checks on him, and everything else basically.

    Clearly the influence of the Fertita brothers had a huge impact on quality of UFC.

    For sure, and to be fair, so did Dana...….but everyone has a point where they are behind the times, and that's Dana now. No fresh ideas, no attempts to make any sort of change. Is that all his fault, maybe not if his remit is to do as he is...….but something needs to change, or WME will simply be losing money for no reason other than laziness.
