Very cool thread! I'm not really sure if the fights this weekend brought new found interest into the sport. The growth over the last 3-4 years has been incredible and I wanna say UFC pay per view events make more $$ then boxing and might be on par with "wrestling". The draw is that a lot of these guys are very technical fighters and blend different styles together and are really good athletes. After football, MMA is probably my second sport of choice to watch on TV. The action is great, fast paced and you usually get what you expect. I also love to see different styles going at it.
