Will MMA Ever Have Its Own Floyd Mayweather vs. Manny Pacquiao?

By Chad Dundas

The article is full of pictures and Twitter quote boxes, too much of a pain to copy paste here. But the article is full of examples of how boxing classes itself up while the UFC makes every attempt to low-brow itself. Good read.

Chad Dundas wrote:A fight like Mayweather vs. Pacquiao can cast itself as family entertainment. Parents can plant their kids in front of the TV and tell them they are about to see history. Your grandmother can watch it, maybe even in the same room with a few of your college buddies.

Why? Presentation. Even if it isn’t, boxing strives to feel classy. Even if it isn’t, it feels safe.

On the other hand, MMA makes most of its money selling itself to young (mostly white) men. While boxing at its highest level at least makes a nod toward the champagne-and-cocktail crowd, the UFC only recently began asking us to embrace Harley Davidson, Monster Energy Drinks and the #BudLightLifestyle.

Boxing and combat sports in general have much more class than Zuffa FC. Fedor vs Cro Cop in PRIDE is how mma should be.

MMA can not have a fight of that significance because UFC product is so watered down and boring that hurts sport bad! I don't see UFC reaching 1 million PPV's for a very long! Aldo vs. Mcgregor will do great and when Aldo beats Mcgregor UFC PPV numbers will sink down.

The biggest super fights never happened cause of Zuffa. Could have had Fedor vs. Couture and Fedor vs. Lesnar when they were champs but didn't happen due to Zuffa policy. We missed out on many other greats at the time like Kid vs. Faber, Aoki vs. Penn, Chuck vs. Wand (when they were both champs and Wand was on a 5 year tear), and many others.

Once UFC stop promoting itself over the fighters will we ever see a fight where 2 big names sell millions on PPV

UFC are too fucking greedy and they keep the fighters down by promoting themselves (and dana) plus control everything the fighters say or do.... now they tell them what to wear with that awful reebok deal.
