I read that this summer another MMA organization(kinda) will be coming to America...i havent seen anything about this in a thread so if there is my bad but....Kimo has already claimed he is in. The idea is that it will be a staged story line like the WWE has but it will be acutual MMA fights...thoughts?

I have heard that Vince wnats to start havign MMA matches. It makes sense to. Nobody is wathinc Pro Wrestling anymore and everyone is watching MMA. We might start seeing Worked MMA matches left right and center from the WWE. But i doubt it. More than likely he will bring in a few names who used to be big. Try and pull a WFA. Just with more backing. Kinda like Bodog.

i used to watch wwe regularly and i still tape it for my kids. but now i find myself ffwing through everything. im tired of the soap opera stuff. since ive been watching MMA the WWE has just gone downhill for me.
i wonder if vince would ever think about an MMA brand separate from any of the wwe stuff. you know he has the money. whatever happened with his talks with pride?
I think ive seen the undertaker in some ufc behind the scenes stuff. was i just seeing things or was that him

Would it ever come to guys accept being acually KO. Thats crazy to think about that they know there gonna get KO goin into the fight although thats how Eddie Sanchez probably felt

I laughed my ass off the other night i saw Vince wants to sign Hogan to a 20 year contract....haha thats great till hes 70...but anyway i might watch it just because its an actual fight...for some odd reason i think it has potential

This would be the worst thing for MMA's legitamacy IMO. Macmahon is seen as an entertainer, practically a BIg-top carney guy. If this happen's it may be a devious way of discredting MMA .

It didnt ssay that Vince was the one in charge.....The fights are real...they just make it out to be more like a soap opera WWE style. kimo has already signed on...i read it in FIGHTSPORT...i think. It would probably attract a lot of mans but not true MMA fans IMO

Yeah but Pride is in it for the Entertainment and they worked out pretty good. I think if Vince pulled in some legit fighters and made it all real fights it would be good. If they were Exihibiton fights and essintially rigged i think it would water the sport down. It does have the potential to turn some grapplers onto the sport though. Most WWE fans wont say "HEY! i want that guy KTFO" They might like to see a sub or slam better.

This would be the league you all are referring to. Where's Kimbo Slice when you need him?

New Era Fighting

Shit's weak.
