    I don’t think Dana’s comment on the UFC not being in competition with the WWE is entirely accurate, I was a huge WWE fan, between myself and some friends we purchase a good 12 WWE pay per views a year a few years back , because it was pure entertainment.
    WWE eventually got boring, the 1st PPV I ever pruchased was the Iceman vs. The Axe Murderer in what I believe was UFC 87 Nemesis. It was well Marketed and the advertisements were everywhere, I decided to give it a shot, with a few buddies and a ton of beer it a blast and I was immediately hooked on MMA.
    a short time later to my surprise the Genius of White & the UFC they brought in Brock Lesner, as a fan of the WWE I was pumped, knowing full well what brock was getting into was the real deal, I felt with his size and credentials it could be interesting, and to see him loose to Mir, made me a even bigger fan of the UFC because of the unpredictability. anything can happen.
    he long story short of it all is at one time I donated my hard earned cash to WWE PPV’s Religeously, since the 1st UFC experiance years ago I now Purchase every UFC PPV and don’t miss any of the free content including the Ultimate Fighter Seasons and since then have not purchased a single WWE payper view, although I appreciate the entertainment the WWE provided with me with for all those years I simply do not have the same $$$ to continue both passions, and truth be told I would rather watch the caliber of sport that MMA is when measured against a staged drama that is nothing but pure entertainment.
    Vince Mcmahon somewhere along the line had to wonder where his fan base is disappearing to and if there is others out there like myself, I can tell you the answer is MMA, particularly the UFC brand to be exact.
    with maybe a final bit of fight left in him Vince is giving his own special touch of Genius by trying to get Brock back, even if only for one event, Hell I’d probibly rent it!
    But make no mistake about it MMA is here to stay and there is no way wrestling, boxing or any other contact sport will have the longevity that MMA will have for Decades to come.

    Yours truly one big MMA fan!

      I’d have to agree with you on this part “UFC not being in competition with the WWE is entirely accurate”. Regardless, if the WWE is pure entertainment vs. the real deal UFC, they’re both still viewed as entertainment, just not in the same league obviously. Vince McMahon will do anything to bring in the dollars and he had this coming, but was to eager and his timing was terrible. I honestly doubt Lesnar will ever return to the WWE, even if his career is completely done in the UFC. I had almost the same feeling as you when Lesnar stepped in the Octagon with Mir, but I was extremely impressed with his skills. I knew he would return because he pulled off more damage than Mir did. Lesnar was just not ready for some Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.

      Cheers!
