Who is "they", boxing? Because as I pointed out the last UFC ppv was the third highest in history.
The UFC. They've expected much higher ratings on the whole. Like 800k when they've been getting 200-300k.
Ok Dunce, one chance for a mea culpa....
The last UFC ppv was the THIRD HIGHEST IN HISTORY. Do you understand what that means? It has the third highest rating of any UFC ppv in the entirety of UFC's history.
Still think they have "weak" ppv results "recently"??? Again, 3rd highest in history.... and that is weak?
You're really latching on to that one event and ignoring that their ratings have been down on the grand scale, huh?
Anyway... Manny Pacquiao... get back to talking real sports that actors cant be champions in.
So you are sticking with the statement "UFC has weak ratings recently" even though the last ppv was 3rd highest in history which falsifies your statement.
You really can't admit when you are wrong.
The problem with UFC is that the majority of the fighters are earning 10K or less on these major PPVs. On one hand it helps UFC because you'll see fighters more often during the year but on the other eventually people will follow the money and it'll change everything.

Don King will take boxing too his grave. He and he alone ruined a great sport.
UFCs Dana White is open about his manipulation of his champions. He does not rig the fights like DK but just like DK nobody gets a championship fight without DWs approval.
That is the long version of for whatever reason UFC has crated a brand that is bigger than the sport of MMA. DK made boxing his b*tch and in theory one guy can hold like what is it now a dozen internationally recognized boxing belts. Whatever the number is its stupid too think there needs too be more than 1. UFC is just 1 of many MMA promotions. My current favorite is Bellator. Really like the way it is done.
as a sport boxing has lots of advantages, but that huge waste of air DK ruined it.
Each MMA promotion has its own rules and agendas, its just most people in the USA have only heard of or care about the UFC.
Mike Tyson is a champion Boxer who is an actor? He made a reality show also, so boxing has reality star actor in their Hall of Fame. Lesnar was champion very briefly and then got sick, problem with knocking Lesnar is that he was 106-5 in NCAA wrestling. He as an absolute monster in REAL wrestling which has no advancements past college except WWE or MMA now.
James Tony got demolished by an old washed up Randy Couture, and he was beaten easily and quickly. Isn't he the IBU heavyweight champion right now? (http://www.ibuboxing.com/ He's the front page) I'm not even sure Tony landed a solid punch at all on Randy.
Tommy Morrison, played in Rocky in 1990 then won the WBO championship in 1993. That's an actor who won a championship also.
Shall we continue?
Enjoy that boxing experience, chief.
lol first shoot randy makes=the match is over. Took all of 10 seconds.
