As a business, the UFC certainly isn’t hurting from a financial standpoint. As a fight promotion capable of creating legitimate new stars, it might be.

Between retirements and older fighters moving on elsewhere, the UFC has lost its share of big names in the past few years. Seeing Rafael dos Anjos take off his gloves (he did NOT retire) this past weekend at UFC on ESPN 39 got us thinking: Is the UFC doing a good enough job of replacing these big names with new stars? Does it have to in this new era of MMA?

Our “Spinning Back Clique” panel of Mike Bohn, Nolan King and Danny Segura weigh in with host “Gorgeous” George Garcia.
