definitely something fishy about it; i am trying to find some old articles about it when it was formed. I remember thinking at the time the link with zuffa seemed painfully obvious
There's about to be a man versus woman fight in shooto. No way the UFC would be puppeteer a commission they would allow that.

I think Brazilians are happy that the government isn't involved in MMA.

Since Ronda can beat Cain and Mayweather, can Holly beat Cain and JDS at the same time? Or Mayweather and Pacquaio at the same time?

This is a lot less diabolical than everyone is making it.

Whenever the UFC goes overseas to a place that has no government oversight over athletics, they get Marc Ratner to make a fake commission that pretty much handles all the regular stuff a commission does like medicals, post-fight suspensions, etc.

Guys HAVE been busted for all sorts of shit in Marc Ratner's fake commission so I wouldn't go about getting worked up over it.

i clearly said i "remember thinking at the time" it was formed and that i am "trying to find some old articles about it"

this is a forum; i asked a question, i dont have lists of sources or pages of reference material. I wanted other people to feed in. So climb down, you fucking idiot.
