Alot of people will probably disagree with this, but in my opinion early ufc(the first 10) were better than the current ufc's. In the early ufc you had guys from very different backgrounds fighting each other, it was unpredictable and very exciting. Now a days everyone fights the same way for the most part, 8 out of 10 fights end up on the ground for 30 minutes with no one going for anything. There's still excitement from time to time, crazy knockouts, slick submissions but it is called ultimate fighting and it seems no one is going for it anymore, everyone is playing it safe honestly. Also want to state I'm a huge fan of combat sports and in no way do I think I'm a better fighter than the current champions, I just think we are seeing a lack of innovation and uniqueness that was present in the early ufc. Thoughts?
