    I think I do. It's interesting, isn't it?
    They just disappeared, after Fedor's loss to Werdum. No one ever spoke about it.

    However, slightly before that, they hired this guy as their COO:

    https://www.facebook.com/sam.caplan.9

    If you remember, he started to work as Bellator matchmaker and got fired along with Rebney.
    As you can see, his current business is far from MMA, so what says you - should one of us send him a message asking, politely, what happened to WAMMA? Why it folded?

    Does anyone volunteer? :)

    I think it just died along with Fedor's undefeated streak.

    But how and why? This is a question I'd like to ask Mr. Caplan.

    I mean, this was supposed to be an independent rankings org, consultant on MMA regulations.
    I even remember they changed some rules.

    Fedor was their champ. So what?

    Yes. The ultimate anti-wrestling enclosure. Sprawl-to-guillotine-to-swinging DDT on the outside lip. Too much for mere mortals to handle properly.

    Big reason we need Jones back from suspension, he is the lineal YAMMA champion. That belt needs to be defended.

    I think they were in over their heads. They may have claimed it was independent but really it was made for just Fedor. They probably thought he would be undefeated forever. And so when he lost they probably just thought well fuck the belt anyway, don't want to give it to no Brazilian.
