- UFC held a press conference this afternoon to promote Saturday’s UFC 135 pay-per-view. During the media event, Triple H’s recent comments were brought up, where Triple H said that UFC needs to adapt to keep pace with WWE. After UFC’s Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones called HHH’s comments, “ridiculous,” UFC president Dana White then chimed in. While said that Vince McMahon is finally letting Triple H talk, and once he gets some more experience in his new role , Triple H “will learn soon not to say stupid things.”

Two different things. Sports. Entertainment. It's probably for the best if they don't even talk about each other.

What does Triple H expect them to do? "Okay, if you have the chance to knock him out, let your opponent know, and wait until the fifth round."

What point does he have?

Yeah everything has to evolve the NFL, NBA, MLB, NHL, UFC, Boxing, and WWE all have to, but guess what?

Insurance for their fighters
FOX deal
Live TUF
Facebook fights
Renewed top sponsor deals

The UFC made those big moves and that's in just one year

The UFC is evolving constantly, go watch a UFC from five years ago and watch it now, they are evolving every year, WWE isn't.

CM Punk addressed this in his 20 minute interview with Ariel Helwani on MMAfighting.com. Everything he said about this topic is the proper response to Triple H's incorrect views of UFC and MMA in general.

If you think Triple H comments has any sort of point you are acting clueless. Trips is whining because he knows they cant do a damn thing against the UFC and he he really pissed off Dana White it would be the stupidest thing he could do. Choice of a qulaity UFC show against a mediocre WWE product would be a no brainer so the best thing he can do is stop saying stupid shit before people actually act on it and put you in your place.

uhhhh why the fuck would Trips say something so ignorant? Really, saying the UFC needs to catch up to the WWE is literally comparing apples to rice noodles.

The WWE is a stage show, the UFC is legit fighting with no storylines...

I think what Triple H said has some merit, but the way he said it was poor words. But in the end, UFC will never be as showy as WWE because UFC is real sport, where WWE tries to blend sport and show together.

I think it was a mistake for HHH to even mention anything like that about a company thats different in so many ways and they don't even consider competition. It really doesn't have much merit either, its fighting in the UFC and as long as the fighters are putting on top notch matches and their PPV's draw those ridiculous numbers UFC doesn't need to change a thing.

Bullcrap. The UFC has played up "storylines" forever, Liddell/Ortiz, Mir/Lesnar, Silva/Sonnen.

Come on now.


It's funny how two guys trying to murder one another is now a sport again. Full circle.
lol, MMA isn't even like that.

Yeah HHH, gotta hate them squashes. Championship matches are supposed to go at least 4 rounds with several kickouts amirate?

Except you know....

Nobody's died in a sanctioned well ran MMA event, how many pro wrestlers get addicted to painkillers, have to go to rehab every year? How many pro wrestlers die every year? Martial arts have been around since the beginning of time but you probably don't have a clue about anything MMA related so you just assume it's two guys in a cage trying to kill each other when in reality all those blows to the head and concussions pro wrestlers get add ups and in their later years, they're pretty much in-coherent and unable to function properly.
