With the departure of Georges St. Pierre and Anderson Silva‘s shelf life in question, a key discussion point behind the scenes in mixed martial arts is where the UFC can turn to generate pay-per-view dollars in 2014.
This week on the Sherdog Radio Network Rewind, in a “Down To Business” edition of the program, host Jack Encarnacao welcomes to guests with seasoned perspectives on how to build stars and storylines that keep the pay-per-view gears oiled.
