Oh, and the "what the fighter must do to win" segment before each fight is a joke. I don't think "bring it" is a serious gameplan.
If you have a problem with that segment, I have a problem with you...so BRING IT!!!
In all seriousness, I thought their past couple events have been pretty exciting. I do agree that their commenting team sucks and they could easily find someone who might be a better "promoter" than Coker. He does a pretty bad job on the whole.
Most casual fans aren't really aware of his events. Hell, I have several friends who actually love MMA and didn't even know the first leg of the GP was last night until I posted it on Facebook.
I am curious about this comment, though, BeeR.
Its sad to say, but strikeforce needs someone to replace Coker, someone with the knowledge and brains to seriously give UFC a run for their money, the only person I could see doing this, sadly, is Vince McMahon
I don't think there's much sad about Vince McMahon. He's smart enough to realize that MMA and WWE are two separate entities and that he couldn't incorporate the fake storylines into MMA and have a product that fans will watch.
People may hate the WWE, but there's no denying that Vince McMahon is one of the greatest business men in sports entertainment. Dana White hasn't even accomplished what Vince has done. Vince eliminated every major competition for himself in the United States. He acquired all of their talent and basically forces wrestling fans to watch his product if they wish to see any big name talent. Sure, there's TNA, but most of their stars lost their appeal around the nineties.
I personally wish the McMahon's would get involved in MMA. They have the production knowledge and business experience to produce a solid product that could rival the UFC. Competition is good for business. If Dana had to worry about someone like Vince poaching his talent, you can bet your ass he'd put the very best product on PPV every single time. Fans would get the match-ups they wanted to see.
Vince has the bankroll, the support, and ability to bring his product just about anywhere by virtue of his name. The man built an empire that is worth billions. Vince has Dana's respect which is something that few people do. Dana wants to BE Vince.
