    This is guaranteed to be an unpopular opinion but I wholeheartedly believe MMA needs a world governing body or sporting federation.

    Sport federations and world governing bodies are nongovernmental groups which work with public and private organizations to organize, sanction, and promote a sport.

    It's ridiculous that we recognize promotional champs (UFC, Pride, Strikeforce, etc.) as being valid international champions, when they are in no way guided by an international governing body or sporting federation.

    If Ford motor corporation put on races, crowned a Ford champ, and restricted drivers contractually to only compete in Ford promoted races how the fuck would we know who was the legitimate world champion?

    This would allow for the kinds of high profile, cross promotional matchups we all want to see. No more absurd money fights. Legitimate champions. Better rights for athletes competing in the sport. And on and on.

    Who pays for this? I'm sure WME doesn't want to and I'm sure the state athletic commissions won't be happy if you dip into their funding streams. Are you just going to say "fuck the state athletic commissions" If so, is the world body going to have their own judges that now have to be flown in? How do you determine the composition of the governing body?

    Who pays for other international sporting federations? I'm not sure but they seem to have it worked out.

    You're acting like it's something unusual or difficult to organize when almost every major sport on the planet has some kind of international governing body.

    Those bodies were likely formed before major revenue was involved and/or before there was an existing system in place. Hardly any of those sports on that list are big business.

    We will truly have an idea who the best in the world are when MMA becomes an olympic modality.

    Right now under the ufc the best you are gonna get is "Conor 2 division champ going for Nate III as his 1st title defense".

    Except for you know FIFA. Because football (soccer) doesn't have any large money involved in it.

    Olympics only give you a snapshot, what about the 4 years in between? That's an eternity in MMA.

    One day when MMA gets big enough, we'll call it the UFC or something.

    I'm not a soccer guy but I thought FIFA is mostly is involved at the world stage, what's their relationship with EPL, La Liga etc? Do players not make money from playing in club leagues and not from FIFA? Im asking here because I don't follow soccer. Obviously FIFA involved in World Cup, but thats every 4 years.

    It's almost like there are international sporting federations that put on events in between olympics. It's almost like the winners of these events are generally regarded as the best in the world.
