Sometimes a game can seem like it never ends. The last two minutes of a game can take thirty minutes in real life minutes, but the game usually ends in regulation and occasionally goes into overtime. But on January 6, 1951 it seemed like a game between the Indianapolis Olympians and Rochester Royals would never end.
This place pace bored fans, many of whom where promised an action packed fun experience and attendance and interest in the new league had begun to dip. The NBA needed a solution and needed it fast.

With 11 weight classes including two for women ( a third one is coming up soon ), the UFC holds regular pay per view and TV events. The UFC reached its peak in 2016 with female champion Ronda Rousey and Irish superstar Conor McGregor helping the promotion break attendance and PPV records. Because of its popularity, the UFC was bought for $4B last year, the biggest such sale in the history of sports.
