One of them, I think Lorzeno, was the commissioner of the NSAC at one point. So they have connections there too. I'm sure that helped them a bunch.

these articles appear every few months. you're right on time TS; it's probably been half a year since i've seen it.

but apparently you missed the best one. here is part II http://fightsport.net/?p=8658. no F bro bashing is complete without this.

needless to say, any and all successful founding fathers of Vegas were indeed directly or indirectly mobbed up. this is no surprise to anyone. whether the next generation is or not will forever be subject to debate. a debate i choose not to engage you in.

enjoy the Z FILES!!!

well, there's lorenzo using his position on the NSAC to block the UFC from getting licensed under their previous owners so that white and frank could pressure them into selling the promotion because they wouldn't be able to put on fights and make money without a license.

why would the mods try to censor information about the Fertittas that is true? I didnt study law but i am pretty sure writing fact can not be considered libel...
