According to Josh Gross on Beatdown, YAMMA was expecting ~1000 people to show up at the weigh ins but no one did other than the press and the camps of the fighters. He called the whole thing depressing. pictures after the jump.

I'll be suprised if 1000 people show up for the fights nevermind the weigh ins

This thing is such a joke. They are trying to bring back the days of the old UFC and it aint happening. No wonder why SEG bottomed out.

well look at who is marketing it, the same guy that ran the UFC in the ground using the same "bloodsport" type message. usually in business you learn from your mistakes but apparantly Bob Meyrowitz has not. it is really the dark side of the sport and the angle they try to exploit is disgusting to me. i just can't wait for this to tank so we can get over this Yamma ordeal.

Yea, he abused his body with drugs immensely, he is one of my favs all time, IMO i've never seen a fighter with so much potential, his potential was so high is not even funny, IMO a mark kerr in his prime, in shape, with some good training and i think he would wipe the floor with Fedor.

well there was a whole thread about this not too long ago started by Rush. It is a combination of not juicing and the effects of heavy drugs.

here are some pics from the thread:

I seriously can't watch him fight or even look at him without getting upset. It really is sad after seeing his old fights to see what he has become. He truly could have been one of the best there ever was. I think everyone should try and learn from his mistakes.

You know, this thing was legitimately embarrassing. I didn't pay to watch these fights and I still feel I was cheated. Bringing back the old UFC commentary team, an ad libbing crackhead for an announcer, a new "pit format" designed to prevent fighters from being held against the cage absolutely backfires with lay n pray making a huge comeback, and finally low level and washed up fighters duking it out with each other in absurd matches. This was absolutely pathetic and legitimately put me in a bad mood. I went out and bought some UFC DVDs just to make myself feel better.
