1. mma is an individual combat sport, yet the ufc tries to act like they are the nfl. -In the nfl you know what where you stand in regards to getting a shot at the championship. -the league front office does not hold you back from a chance at the title because youre not exciting enough to market. (i.e. patriots back to back) -it seems they take all of the negative aspects of the huge american team sports without absorbing the positve. releasing players, benching them for the balance of the year rather than trading them to where they could see some action. at least if youre sitting on the sidelines in the nfl you still get paid. 2. zuffa wants to take over the world and be the 'only game in town'. They think they as the organization and promoter are bigger than the sport. -Unfortunately boxing has corruption among the promoting ranks. However, the bright spot is that the organizations/federations (with the exception of ibf) do not make their belt or affiliation be a burden to you. Youre free to defend your title and fight whoever, whereever, and whenever you want. to fedor, randy, and kang for telling them to themselves.
