No way, with the new ESPN deal it wouldn't be possible. The ufc has hit a valley and it's a matter of time before it comes back up

Absolutely... I feel like they're getting a little lazy with how they promote guys.

They're trying to push Colby which might work because he already seems to have a lot of people who hate him. Hope they really promote him vs tyron, solid fight with two completely different personalities.

Everyone else is just a bit boring personality wise, outside of guys like yoel and even he doesn't sell.

They just gotta put in more effort to promotion

I find most of their cards are overhyped.
I am sick of Joe Rogan screaming to the top of his voice on everything .
Lord, the dude has an orgasm on arm bars.

McGregor and Rousey were their biggest draws and they have been seen in a while.

Nah, I'd say it's got a bad case of the flu though. Once they find a new star, they'll be on the road to recovery.

There just aren't any. They need to be able to talk the talk AND walk the walk, and no-one is there.

DJ at Flyweight, a division most people don't care about.

TJ, Garbrandt at BW, not many people care plus they are dumb as rocks.

Holloway at FW is a great fighter, no personality to market.

LW is barren in terms of personality (barring Mcgregor who is out) and Khabib is mostly big in Russia.

WW Woodley no-one cares about, Colby irritates most people and his style is nothing too fan friendly.

MW is a joke, the champion is from Aussieland and not marketable.

LHW is a wasteland after Jon Jones ****ed up by using PEDs.

HW has Stipe, a guy that seems to hate the cameras.

Female MMA is a joke, they are only marketable when they shake their ass because they sure as shyt can't fight for the most part.

Potential stars as the UFC sees it:

They tried making Garbrandt 'happen' - they failed (remtach tho)

Sugar Sean O'Malley is that skinny AF guy at BW who smokes weed (yay, he's cool....). Not gonna compete with anyone in the top 5.

Ortega?

Khabib? Not fighting on the Russia card?
Kevin Lee? He has the skills AND the personality and is young, so potentially in the future.

Woodley and Covington are boring to most, Wonderboy was hyped and failed twice so he's done. Till can't make WW for much longer and while his style can be fun, he isn't all that imo.

Usman? Possibly, though again styles.
