UFC wasn't always the Evil Empire

With the UFC dominating North American mma so completely, it's easy to forget that just a few years ago they were the redheaded stepchild of the PPV industry. MMATorch, who are all about these 'back in the day' things, has a cool article on the show that probably had the title of 'Worst UFC event ever' before UFC61 snatched it away.
ORIGINAL HEADLINE: UFC's anticipated return to PPV stage disappoints

SUBHEADLINE: All bouts end in draws, crowd chants "boring" and leaves early, event goes off air before finish
So just remember this kinda shit before you start yapping about the UFC not having earned it's spot on top of the pile. They worked hard to fuck up in every way they could imagine before finally being saved by the idea of a shitty reality TV show.
