About three years ago, I put up a poll called What Is the Number Four MMA Promotion in North America? A lot has happened in and to MMA since then, and I thought it would be interesting to revisit the subject. The discussion on that old post was very informative.
Some of the promotions that seemed significant then are gone or barely there now, and some of the promotions that are important now didn't exist then. I put together the poll choices based on the poll from 2011 and on my inadequate knowledge of small and regional promotions. I'm sure I left off some obvious choice. Maybe WSOF is the obvious number three, but having watched their shows and shows from some more obscure organizations, I'm not sure about that.
