Thread: Boycott UFC

  1. #1

    Default Boycott UFC

    It wont do much as most people will continue to buy but I am no longer contributing money that will go into the hands of the ufc brass.

    Plenty of places to watch the fights either on live stream or the next day.

    Agree PJ. Or go to Hooters or some place where you aren't directly contributing to them.

    I haven't bought the last couple of them. I've seen the fights in a variety of ways--buddies, online, etc.

    I support the fighters, but I just can't stomach their business practices. I hope more people feel the same way as time goes on.
    I heart Jazzy B. White.

    UFC is the only organization that gives me consistent amounts of high level of MMA, so I will continue to pay my money. I will also give my money to Affliction, etc.

    But your presence validates them spending the thousand dollars plus, per fight, that they are spending to air the fight. If you truly want to boycott it, then you shouldn't go to the bar, either.

    I like my job, so I won't join you in this, but I agree with the sentiment. This Fitch stuff is officially bullshit.

    I'm with you Zapp, I will continue to support the UFC. If the fihgters are willing to stay there and fight for peanuts, sign away their rights, give their first born, etc., why in the world would I give a $hit about it? I may make my annual charitable donation payable to ZUFFA LLC. Claudale, go ahead and say something smart.

    Adolf - if you came from a humble background (as we've been told) and managed to build a large business since, I have to imagine you were frugal for a long time.

    Maybe you should encourage some of these young guys to to save a little money? What PJ said is something I thought about years ago - I don't like how UFC management acts and I limit how much I support them.

    Bluestater - yes and no. Hooters doesn't pay a per person charge for the event and if turnout didn't justify the cost, they wouldn't pay. But once full, a few more bodies doesn't pay the UFC anything directly. I've only done Hooters 2x, once for last year's end of year show, and once for Hughes - Penn 2.

    There is obviously something here that I am not aware of? Maybe someone could explain to me why you think we should not support the UFC. I've always thought the matches were really cool to watch.
