    Worst choice ever. I guess it is players voting though and it would be probably be a great place to live as a pro athlete but it would be a terrible move for the league as a whole.

    I also agree the UFC is overrated.

    I was just pointing out that the UFC is not a sport.

    MMA is a sport.

    Cricket is about 800 bazillion times much more popular then hockey ever will be. I'll still take hockey though :D
