If I had to pinpoint an event where everything went wrong its UFC 200. An event with Brock Lesnar, Mark Hunt, Daniel Cormier, Anderso Silva, Jose Aldo, Frankie Edgar and Cain Velasquez.

And I only remembered that from checking wikipedia - when I remmeber UFC 200 I remember a piss yellow mat and it being headlined by Miesha Tate vs Amanda Nunes after every other title fight fell through but drat it they needed a title in the main event and its been resulted in watered and watered down titles because they must be the main event no matter what.

Though these days they would've just make Brock v Mark an interim title fight and called it a day.

Note: Edgar v Aldo WAS for the interim featherweight championship, but they stuck it fourth from the top. If that had main evented it would've been better but back then interim was less than real belts, a distinction that's become more and more meaningless as the real belts.

Edit also:

The following fighters were awarded $50,000 bonuses:[44]

Fight of the Night: Not awarded

laffo

Tate/Nunes was already on the card, it was going to be a 3 title match show. It was a match between the champion and a very worthy challenger. It was not an example of throwing together title matches for the hell of it, just because people were more into the freakshow fights on that card. Putting Aldo/Edgar above that would be completely insulting to two women fighting over a the real title in a division that had been doing redhot business. Aldo/Edgar was far more emblematic of UFC's current problems.

Scott Coker has reached a point where respect for Dana is so low and the UFC product is so bad he can now comfortably dunk on him and UFC while hyping Bellator and people are agreeing with Coker. This was unthinkable only a few short years ago.

Yeah, just last year even, Coker would have probably kept his fat mouth shut no matter what was going on with the UFC.

ufc presentation has been stale and bad through both good and bad periods, the shows would be more interesting if there was even a fraction of the fanfare of the last Bellator/RIZIN shows. those shows are more fun to watch even though the calibre of fighters throughout the card is of a way lower standard.

the traditional stripped down UFC presentation only feels really good when the actual fight is so big that it all it needs is bruce buffer to introduce it. I don't want a massive clown show but anything different would be better than 70% of every card feeling like Stupid fuckface 1 & 2 going at it

i think the production in those shows sucks rear end and makes them look cheap as hell. the UFC doesn't need all that fanfare as long as the fights are good, and usually they are. i like the new look, don't really need gladiators spitting fire every time a fighter walks out

I'm not sure if it's just because of the location it was being sold or what but that's the first time I've seen electronic theft devices on booze bottles

They have them on the higher end bottles at the supermarkets here in Korea. But your lower end stuff (soju, makgeoli) etc. won't.

Think due to McGregors stupidly easy to rile up fans they put them on so they don't steal them.
