I had a random idea while smoking a cigarette and thought I'd put it out there.
A different format for setting up a fight card that the UFC could use that would minimise disruption from injuries and even provide a new revenue stream as opposed to the current PPV model. On a given card (not a numbered event, obviously) you have 6 or more fighters of a given weight scheduled. The audience can then ring in (yes, Big Brother or Talent show style) and decide which match-up(s) they wanted to make. The fighters would have had a full training camp but would not know specifically who they would be matched up with on the night. Although you lose some of the promotion behind a known main event instead you build up the individual fighters each fortnight/month and the card is somewhat immune to injuries spoiling match-ups.The card itself could be free or even broadcast only over facebook or similar.
Fun idea or should I stop posting after smoking cigarettes?
