Plus you didn't have this drama And Twitter shit I mean it is amazing of how guys like Colby and cejudo had to change their personalities ( put on an act) in order to pretty much get a title shot or even get noticed.

Though ironically you don't see that in any other MMA promotion. I mean I haven't seen Douglas lima having to go into WWE mode.

Hell not even in Pride yes you had call outs like when Mirko called out Fedor after he beat Ibrahim magomedov that definitely wasn't Pro wrestling . In today's MMA landscape especially the UFC they would be expected to do a twitter battle.

They are like memories of a past life now. Back when we were still living in the physical world. The transition to the sim world began in around 07, the same year that PRIDE died.
yeah 07 was the start of FACEBOOGER.. the beginning of the end.

before this time people cared... so much passion.

So sad what has happened

WHAT HAPPENED?!?!?!?!

i believe somewhere around 2007 the iphone was introduced..
yep. smartphones.

it killed passion for life.

can't have everything at your fingertips
07/08 was the year of Blackberry iirc, but that started the trend of people looking at their phones 24/7. The iphone continued that trend into the 2010s.
Iphone was released in June 2008.
I dont remember very well anymore, but the Iphone was a failure at first right? It only picked up in 2010-11ish.
the original Iphone wasn't that good. I remember late 2007 them being around.

not 2008.

Ok I got the date . Jun 2007.

That was when I first saw them popping up.
Did you guys see any part of Cormier/Miocic?

So now point fighting has made its way to Heavyweight? What has happened to this timeline.

The way the UFC was promoting that fight didn't help. The greatest trilogy of all time. Really? It's like everything that takes place in the next fight card is touted as the greatest thing ever, and whoever is the current champ is the greatest fighter ever. Low IQ marketing. Cormier was a LHW for 80% of his career and was small even at that weight class and Stipe was a fringe dude who only became relevant after most HWs washed out due to old age and mileage. Good fighter but so far from GOAT it's not even funny.
