    I read it but the UG might not have been the best place to post it ;) I'm not sure if you've seen it but MMAjunkie publish a fan submitted piece every sunday and might give it better consideration than a coolstorybro.jpg.

    I really like the concept. Getting to watch new fighters progress instead of the hundreds of untelevised regional promotions but it's not going to happen unless a single promotion can support that many fighter contracts and garner the audience to make it profitable. That or when there's more of an emphasis on fighters as opposed to companies. As you mentioned you've got the Football leagues over here and there is sort of that with the NFL and colledge football in America so the model obviously works when that level of mass market is there but it's probably going to be a while for MMA.

    Fucking looking forward to Strikeforce tomorrow!
