Default Is true MMA dying?

I remember when the UFC first started, then the changes (middle), and now (present day). I have been always a fan from the beginning to see the best fighter pitted against another best fighter. In the beginning, it wasnt only one fight. It was multiple fights for the fighter to accend to the top. Then it changed where the best only fight the best one time in a tournament. Now, you dont need the best to fight the best anymore to fight as the headliner.

I understand money and such for the promoters and blah blah blah. You got Silva vs. Sak for 3 times of where Silva destroyed Sak in the first fight, then second fight and then third fight. You got Mirko who got knocked out of a HW grand prix tourney in the first round, who may come back in a alternate match. You got Sylvia who couldnt defend his championship belt because of legal situtations but wasnt stripped of his title. (I believe Josh Barnett was stripped because of a similar circumstance).

K-1 is now having special matches (mma) to excite the crowds of their fans. Bob Sapp is a legend.

To the ones who have seen mma from the beginning. Is the true mma dying?

No. It's doing what it needs to do to become financially viable.

Once the TV deal for the UFC kicks in... the sky is the limit.

Don't worry.

just like anything you have good and bad growth.
the more people trying to put on shows and making their mark, the more good and bad growth there is.
Its always been and always will be about the $$$
At least for those with the power to make the decisions

Dana has been saying that for awhile know. I take reports of t.v deals about to be signed with a grain of salt
