Good to see they are getting their content out there. Now they just have to work on making the content better. They need some fixes in management and at times better match making.

I believe they will be able to make better matches as they continue to sign the talent. To sign the talent though they need to show everyone that they are going to keep the competition legit and put the "freak" fights on the back burner.

By better matchmaking do you actually mean worse matchmaking in order to have more one sided stoppages as opposed to full length title fights? There is nothing wrong with Scott Coker although I do agree that douches at Showtime hurt the product.

i don't see any problems with their match making other than folks probably don't like rogers getting the title shot after losing to fedor but that's really the only thing that made sense under the circumstances.

Seems like a big move, they need it. "Asia" is a vague term, but any exposure is good exposure.......well that is unless 2 of your champions are involved in a brawl after an event!?!?!?
