    Pay the fighters more and let the UFC deal with the sponsors, like any of the other big sporting leagues. But as long as guys are still geting under 10k to fight, they need to be able to bring in their own sponsors.

    Hopefully Strikeforce continues to gain momentum and that will be a possibility.

    Down with the UFC, down with the evil empire. They treat their fighters like shit. They put on the worst PPVs. They killed pride. Dana White is an asshole

    Fortunately, Strikeforce has good management that won't rely on a youtube street brawler.

    The UFC almost has a strangle hold on mma at the moment. MMA = UFC for most people.

    That's why pride going under was such a travesty. The UFC bought it to kill it :wtc:

    :werd: The UFC is like WWE in the sense that they have branded their product, when you talk about wrestling people instantly think WWE, same shit with UFC like you said.

    Pride was dead before even UFC bought it cause it was taken off TV and UFC was also trying to see if they could start Pride up again but they gave up on it cause it was too much hassle.

    I think its kinda of a good idea on their part since TUF was getting stale. Also, the other guys will be able to get a rub off of Kimbo's status.

    Sounds to me like the UFC will just hand out sponsors to their fighters and then pay fighters out of the 100k. They will probably have higher rates for those who want top fighters.

    Im sure its less about the ufc wanting to cash in and more about their bigger sponsers like budweiser that want to increase their exposure by limiting the clusterfuck of other sponsers in the cage. sponsers like bud pay fortunes to have their space on the broadcast while other small numbnut companies like t*u :hsugh: are getting in there on the cheap.
