SpecialGuest - Does anyone know how big a draw CM is at the WWE? Was he one of the biggest stars there? I'm assuming he has less star power than BrockHe was one of the most popular full time WWE guys in the last 5 years. The only other guy I would say was more popular was Cena and maybe Daniel Bryan.
I think he would be smarter if he fought at 170. Otherwise, Yoel would ragdoll him.
So washed up UFC fighters go to Bellator but washed up WWE wrasslers go to the UFC?
I liken this move to that of the Reebok sponsorship. In the short term it can be damaging to some fighters who deserve more (CM Punk taking their spot, or Reebok replacing a potential big local sponsor that could land them a nice chunk of cash). In the long term the increased fans and revenue should help build the UFC (if they manage growth correctly). And, growth is what will attract more of the best athletes in the world away from other big sports.
If you build it, they will come.
