Being that UFC likes to compete with other MMA orginizations the same night they have events would it be a smart move to compete with Boxing if it was the same night as the biggest boxing match in history Manny Pacquiao v.s. Floyd Mayweather. The only way to do it would have to be Georges St. Pierre vs Anderson Silva. I myself would support MMA and watch the UFC event but would definately watch Floyd/ Manny under different circumstances. If Dana and the UFC actually went through with this I think their only chance of competing would be to throw one more HUGE fight on the same card...... So if these two cards were on at the same night which would you watch live?
Pretty Boy Floyd Mayweather v.s. Manny Pacquiao
Fedor Emelianenko vs Brock Lesnar
Anderson "the Spider" Silva v.s. Georges "Rush" St. Pierre
If the UFC wanted to compete with Mayweather vs Pacquiao I think they could do rather well. Just put these names on the card:
1.Kimbo Slice ( I hate to say in some respects,but the dude is a draw!)
2. Chuck Liddell (One of the biggest names in MMA)
3.Tito ( Yes,yes,it's Tito.But he's still a huge name and a big draw)
6.James Toney (yeah I know it could be a freakshow,but hell put him up against anyone and people are gonna watch it. )
Those 6 names on a card alone,regardless of who they fight would draw attention.
I think the UFC should compete against a big boxing match like that to show their not affraid to do it,and to prove they can suck out some vitality from the biggest fight in boxing with just a mediocore UFC card.
