Default If you could tell Dana ....

3 things.. what would they be??

Mine??

1. Bring back the raised walkouts.. I HATE the walk through the crowd.. some one will get an eye poke sooner or later..

2. "Super Fights" - more "catch weight" fights. Fans REALLY want to see "cross weight" fights.

3. STOP CUTTING FIGHTERS - Rich Clementi being cut after 2 losses??? Andrei Cut? WTF?? at the VERY least explain to the fans... Think more long term...if you need to...

(bonus)
Chuck, Matt, Jens, Randy... dude.. they helped make MMA what it is... they fight who they want.. when they want... back off when it comes to some of the "guys that brought you to the dance.."

I like your bonus the best.

I heard in Japan the number of losses a fighter has is less important to fans than the fighter himself. In other words, keep the great ones fighting!

1) Change the scoring system. 10-pnt must sucks
2) Force judges to be educated. It seems like some of them don't know what they're looking at.
3) Get over yourself & induct Pat & Bas into the HOF.

2, actually, but I don't care. Since the UFC's HoF is the closest thing to an MMA Hof (in which Bas undoubtedly belongs), I want him in there.

Platform walkins? No thanks. Those were way too WWF. The current walkins are more akin to boxing and thus more legit. It's an image thing, and I agree with it. The worst thing that will happen is BJ will get kissed by more men...

I like the suggestions so far:

1.Superfights/Catch-weight fights.

2.Stop Cutting Fighters.

3. Judges/10pt system.

I would add:

1.Sign Lawler,Shields,Nick,Rogers,Overeem soon as he can.

2.Bring back the Tournies.

3.Market the fighters better;can educate the public more and give the sport more star power.

1. Stop f'ing cursing.
2. Grow some hair.
3. Stop wearing black t-shirts all the time.

1) Think of early retirement, you've helpped where you are now a hinderance to the sport

2) Stop fast-tracking, it damages needlessly the careers of other good men and usually raises a glass ceiling you'll try to later rid yourself of

3) pay them more. You can afford it. If you dont sooner or later you will face a union and then we'll all be sorry
