    pretty much. trying to treat mma llike the NFL or NBA? Jesus how stupid do you have to be?

    Not to mention the reason a league format doesn't exist is because the sport isn't NEARLY deep enough to run like that, and it wouldn't warrant the silly tirades and junior high drama the UFC brings out.

    it's not a league, it won't be a league, it can't be a league and gain and audience

    So its basically the original Bellator tournament format?
    Yeah that didn't work out so well.

    I like it in theory, but injuries, money, and seedings just screw the whole thing up.

    I love the idea, but can't see it actually working in reality.

    What was the other promotion that was a league? And had teams and jerseys?

    That was the IFL. Where Big Ben made a name for himself I believe.

    I liked the IFL.
    I was a Renzo Gracie student and have a Pitbulls jersey.

    They actually had some really good fighters come through there.

    Regular monthly checks, being able to more accurately forecast a fight due to the season, might this just possibly work out?

    I wonder if current fighters had to renegotiate their deals?
    I think this can work. Maybe not as idealistically as they laid it out. But if they seed the fighters I think they can build new stars if they have an upset or two along the way.
