I prefer Pride rules. The no kneeing/kicking on someone who is down or in the 4 point position takes alot out of the sport. Fighters can just drop down to get a quick breather in UFC and wrestlers don't have to worry about getting kneed during takedowns.
No, its a gross exaggeration. UFC mostly sat on its ass. Only the last couple of months with the TUF was something new.Originally Posted by natedogg
When Zuffa took over from SEG at UFC 40, all the big names were already in place. Shamrocks, Tito, Couture, Vitor, Liddell, Arlovski, Rizzo, Ricco, Pulver, Bustamante, Lindland, BJ Penn were all pre-Zuffa fighters. All Dana did was merely keeping the engine running. Hardly any good new names were signed.
So your statement about better fighters is mostly wishful thinking. Dana has had problems with many of the big names.
