    <JRSmith40>[​IMG] I understand that "they're fighters so who cares argument" but I wonder if others feel there's a growing trend.


    Jones - constantly having problems
    Werdum/Ferguson - confrontation
    Volkan Oezdemir assault? - ufc immediately issues statement
    Conor Mcgregor /bellator - ufc ignores?
    Covington / werdum confrontation

    Cyborg and that weird woman?


    This is just a recent string, I was hoping ufc would aggressively address McGregor and more so Werdum. I thought they should have pulled werdum off the card.

    I think at some point ufc needs to send a message and really whack someone in pockets

    Pull Werdum off the card?

    UFC Fight Night: Rawlings vs the chick that beat her.

    Would draw huge numbers.

    Pointless.....They can do something right after, people paying their tickets to see the former champ in a boring fight should get their money`s worth.

    It’s not like the UFC is a legit league.

    Because, most pro sports have morality clauses in the contracts.

    But, it doesn’t look good on the UFC, or MMA itself.

    "Mr. Zimet, a former federal prosecutor, described the incident that formed the basis of the case as nothing more than a bar room altercation in which Mr. Oezdemir, who was not the aggressor, was totally justified in all of his actions pursuant to Florida law."

    Oezdemir is innocent!
    Can't blame the dude for defending himself.

    Do not look towards combat sports for upwardly mobile and upstanding citizens.

    If the UFC wants to lose the drunken frat boy image, then they need to start setting the expectations for behavior far higher than they do now.

    People greatly underestimate the consequences of taking repeated blows to the head.

    It's only so much to do. What do you want from them?

    If the UFC wants more control, then the fighters would have to be employees. They are not.

    UFC fighters are nothing like NFL players.

    I'm having a hard time giving a shit about the personal lives of fighters or words they choose to use.

    How they conduct themselves is irrelevant to me when the end result of them punching each other in the face is the same.

    It'll get to the point where the UFC lets too much slide, and they end up being forced into serious reorganizing by an act of Congress so that they're like more popular sports leagues (NFL, NBA, etc) along with.... you guessed it... a very powerful Union.
