WAR WAND! GET THEN ALL!
Preview post, breh
Interesting he keeps pushing this at this moment concidering he just got sued
He is correct. It's the angle UFC is going for.
How did baldy and the mobsters get past the Muhammad Ali act?
it was never enforced in MMA
Some would argue it's not enforced as much as it should be in boxing, as well. The Ali Act claims no jurisdiction over MMA, though.
Fitch blankets them while wand soccer kicks them. Perfect tag team.
War wand and broke fitch!
if you are pro UFC and pro dana white
you are against fighters and fair pay. simple as that. wand is right on this one.
Oh look, it's the Bitter Exes UFC Haters club. Fitch, Jimmo, Wand, Stitch, the whole crew is there!
Does anyone know whether Ryan Jimmo is still a UFC fighter?
Did Jimmo get cut? Was surprised to see him there.
Regardless, these guys are doing a good thing. It needs to happen.
Yeah, it's hard to take some of them seriously as individuals (especially Wand). Discussion as to whether the Muhammad Ali Act or at least aspects of the Muhammad Ali Act should be applied to MMA probably shouldn't be so casually dismissed, though. It's a legitimate discussion that could be extremely important in shaping the landscape of MMA over the next number of years. The fact that the likes of John McCain and Bernard Hopkins (who testified in front of congress around the time of the original Ali Act talking about why such measures were important to protect the rights of fighters) have taken an interest in MMA fighters and possible MMA legislation is an indicator that it's a discussion that probably won't go away.
The Ron Swanson in me hates government regulations but the April in me wants to see UFC fail for the lulz. The Leslei in me yearns for a best friend and waffles. The Ben in me wants to go game. While the Tom in me wants to treat myself. Yeah, I'm going to go watch Parks and Rec while I eat some waffles...
I think the fighters need this. I believe Coker was for it as well. This is Bellator's chance to start scooping up some talent by being the better and more viable alternative.
I'm all for the change, but if the Muhammad Ali act were enacted tomorrow Zuffa would most likely spin off a self contained non-profit to rank fighters.
Charter rules for the non-profit would be that it's Org specific to the UFC but independent. Then nothing really changes but a 3rd party issuing rankings. The promoter is still free (just like in boxing) to arrange and promote their own fights.
In essence, nothing would really change for the UFC.
Or you might be someone who doesn't work in the industry and has no skin in the game at all. Some people just want to watch fights. We should all stay out of the personal affairs and finances of the fighters. It's literally none of our business.
Any time I think of Ryan Jimmo and his relationship with the UFC I think of the seats the UFC comped him
Must have been so embarrassing for whoever he took there
sounds like youre a tribe of one
