Triple H says MMA should stop being boring

More entertainment value, like Brock brought to the sport in his early matches, is what MMA needs. Think that's fair comment from Triple H, who is watching the rasslin business stagnate?

"I don't see us needing to evolve to what UFC does because quite frankly sometimes the fights are long and boring, guys lying around and sometimes the fights are fast and over in five seconds. I've always thought one of the things about us, if you look at us solely from a sports standpoint, is that we always give you a good show. We're never going to give you a crap game. I think if anybody needs to evolve, it's them. Give more of an entertainment standpoint. Give more form; they just have fighters who walk in in T-shirts and shorts and just stand there and then they fight and then they win and then they go "thanks, I'd like to thank my sponsors" and then they leave. The whole world was up in arms when Brock was flipping people off and was cussing at the beer company because they didn't give him any money and everyone thought, "oh my god, he's disrespectful," -- the whole world was talking about it. They couldn't wait to see him get beat up. And then he did well, and he beat some guys and then people jump on his bandwagon going 'Brock's the greatest.' I'm good friends with Floyd Mayweather and Floyd would be the first to tell ya, 'I make the most money in boxing and I have the biggest buyers because I have the biggest mouth.' He'd be the first guy to tell you that. That's what it's about. Sports is entertainment."

Triple H should marry Dana's daughter and then fire Dana.

So long as he drugs her, and gets married in a roadside Vegas chapel.

Haha......I actually remember that. HHH was driving and pretending to be Stephanie talking, while she was clearly passed out.

It was a pretty ridiculous bit.
