    Default How many UFC shows is too many? loads in 2014

    Ariel Helwani @arielhelwani
    Lorenzo Fertitta just said they'll be doing 54 events next year. So from 33 to 54.

    33 events in 2013, 54 in 2014. that's more than fucking one-a-week.

    I'm not complaining. it's awesome and represents solid growth for ufc/mma - but there are some pitfalls to having so many shows.

    i dunno how to feel about this. what do you reckon?

    I've already tweeted about this. It's crazy and it's becoming too much IMO.

    Makes you wonder if the Zuffa/UFC brass like their families haha.

    As per an older thread, they should definitely go back to 4 shows a year, that was much better. Advancement and progression is a terrible thing and scares me.

    Ah apologies for shitty info.

    I love this 'mispoke' concept. 'i fucked that bit up'

    We're going to take that fight night product and expand it into Europe and into Asia next year," Fertitta said, noting events already on the books in London and Singapore
    What's he talking about? Fight night product? Putting on a fight card?

    UFC can put on as many shows as they want, but I certainly won't be watching them all.

    This, more opportunities and more talent will be discovered especially in Europe, Asia and South America!
