Not trying to start a war, but by Dana White and the UFC starting, “Zuffa Boxing” are they finally bowing down to the Ultimate sport, The Sweet Science. The BobFather thinks so. Arum has come out and said Dana is pretty much admitting Boxing is the more popular sport, all that “dead” talk is just that, talk, and he needs Boxing to save his company now.

I tend to agree. :lol: :cool: :boxer: I think it’s clearer’s now than ever.

Dana on espn this week, throwing Floyd’s name around saying they are in negotiations, Floyd downplaying. Conor can’t stop talking about Floyd.

With UFC applying for their boxing license and getting in the business, I think it’s time to Bow Down.

Looking at the first 3 months of the boxing schedule there is literally one boxing match im looking forward to, ONE. One fucking fight. And while we'll spend most of our time here talking about AJ-Wilder, Thurman-Spence, Mikey-Loma, we wont actually SEE any of those fights in 2018. Pardon me while i bow down. :hearty-laugh:

Not sure why I need to bow down, but, ok lol

Seriously, that's good news. You get the UFC marketing machine, which, for me, means I will get exposure to fighters on a regular basis to develop a following and favorites to root for. I imagine a better show to develop talent that will be better than the contender. I have have really enjoyed most seasons of the Ultimate Fighter. I'm sure most of that is just marketing.

More importantly, you will see fighters fighting. There will be no ducking and that nonsense. The UFC always has good matchups, which, in my opinion, is lacking in fist fighting. Of course, full disclosure here, I don't follow as closely Europe and Asia as there maybe great fights being put on regularly.

I would not mind seeing fist fighting in the octagon. It's bigger than most rings, but, I would not mind seeing fist fighting fights on UFC mma cards.

Lastly, the UFC, over the last few years has done a good job of working with the various regulatory boards the fine tune the rules. For instance, hair pulling or ball punches or kicks, to the fighting we see now days. Off the top of my head, if the guys are fighting in a large octagon, hand out a yellow card for the pussy trying to run.

This is a good thing.

Dana is doing it to keep his options open since more and more his fighters are talking about wanting to box. And hey, if you can get some pros into the concept, it may really work out! Cyborg says she wants to fight Braukhaus. I dont know what kind of money Cecelia is making right now, but if it aint much, Dana can create something and get her and Cyborg well paid!

Just goes to show you that Dana is a shrewd business man, and that all that boxing is dead shit was never much more than him trying to get people onto his brand. Now that he sees a way to get in and benefit, he'll try. WME-IMG is also putting money in Dana's back to expand the overall brand and the company. You dont get that by sticking to only MMA which has essentially topped out given the UFC model.

Dana has always been upfront about being a huge boxing fan. i dont think he's ever been at the forefront of the boxing is dead movement.

Hogwash. But its immaterial to me, because I never believe that he was stupid enough to believe it, and would be peddling said sport when it suited him.
