UFC's Bad Business Press, Overeem Hearing, Jon Jones' Starpower On The MMA Tete-A-Tete

Luke Thomas of MMA Fighting and I got together last week, donned our headsets, fired up our web cams and got to gum flapping for another installment of the MMA Tete-a-Tete: Coarsening the Discourse.

Topics covered include:

  • The barrage of bad business press the UFC got hit with last week, including a report in Advertising Age that Anheuser Busch had reprimanded the promotion based on various fighter antics and a follow up in Business Insider that was little more than a hatchet job on the UFC.
  • The hilarity of Alistair Overeem's hearing before the Nevada State Athletic Commission.
  • Whether or not Jon Jones has truly emerged as a star and a genuine big-time PPV draw for the promotion.
Give it a watch. If you like it be sure and "subscribe" to the YouTube channel so you'll be notified of future installments and "like" the video. Oh yeah and if you disagree be sure and comment here or on YouTube.
