Have we seen this all before? It seems awfully familiar. Just short from Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson making an appearance it’s safe to say there’s some murmuring around the corner of this turning into another “professional” sport.
Now we aren’t literally saying that UFC is like WWE (mainly because chairs, tables and ladders aren’t involved) but it seems there is a growing part of the community that feels that the sport is turning into every other professional sport.
That professional athletes end up becoming consumed by their pay and more importantly their ego (cough Silva cough) and all other things fall to the wayside of them. Not labeling all the headliners this way but it is coming to the point where one contemplates buying the pay per view match to possibly see a good fight or scouring Facebook prelim fights you know will be putting 110% of themselves into each swing, throw and pin. It’s not that fights are getting fixed but are getting picked. Certain people dropping out at the last minute with a replacement who isn’t on the same level ends up getting knocked out and just adding to that persons record. People getting put up against those with three to four times less experience and trying to put on that it was a shocker for the inexperienced guy to go down so quickly. Or better yet how about these kids with no tact and definitely no skill or grace, making it undefeated for so long when a pet monkey could outperform. Undefeated sounds a lot better than 7-4. Wonder how they went all the way though? I can’t be the only one that thinks something is a little fishy with these fights. Can you smell what the Rock is cooking?
