Default Would the UFC be as big today, if it mostly had black fighters?

With the rise of the UFC as the #1 combat sport in America.

Chuck Liddell is the sport's DLJoto(couture too). Liddell also happens to have suffered his only ko losses in the fists of black fighters. Anderson "The Spider" Silva is often rated as the UFC's P4P #1 fighter, yet, his PPV #s are also the lowest compared to other UFC champs.

It be the same minus the racist newbs.

I do think we need to get people on the bandwagon and start promoting folk, catch and freestyle in the inner cities. Also create a honest martial arts program for the community and I don't mean any "lil ninjas/cobras/tigers/samurai/dragons" bull****. Real honest program.

Either that or let the afro-brazilians take over.

UFC still isnt #1 combat sport in america

boxing is still the top dog in the US

do u ever see celebrites at an MMA event?

what sport does ESPN televise like nearly every night?

thats right boxing

until ESPN runs UFC instead of boxing and you start to see A-listers at a UFC event i still say boxing is the biggest over there
