    Unfortunately most everyone who is a legit contender is bound by contracts with promoters like the UFC.

    The only belt I recognize is the WAMMA belt.

    This is the quote that sums it up to me:

    I always loved concept of WAMMA but it will never work unless all the orgs are willing to share talent to really crown a champion of MMA

    This is not WAMMA, guys.
    WAMMA was the "World Alliance of MMA", this is World Association of MMA.
    Also, it for amateurs.

    WAMMA belt all over again. Without the UFC backing your title is viewed as irrelevant. What's funny is the only two WAMMA titles (that I know of) lineal lines wind up as Anthony Pettis and Cain Velasquez.

    Meh, look at their website. no US, Brazil, Japan, UK or Canada. The biggest MMA countries competung are Russia and Korea. The IMMAF one next year will be the first real world amateur MMA championship, with UFC's support and the relevant countries participating.
