Sorry Alvin, my objection to your last post is going to make you
Your entire post (in addition to the portion of your previous post that I ignored) is based on the erroneous assumption that NPO would not be contracting the fighters.
Maybe I didn't make it clear enough earlier, but NPO would be contracting the fighters to the promoters (per card) and/or to NPO. Therefore, there is no reason why problems like the one you describe (or similar such as the current WFA farce) would be increased. In fact, it is quite possible that they could be decreased in some way through the strength of a global NPO (more threatening punishments to unreliable fighters), or a 'double' contract (both NPO and the promoters are binding the fighter to the card).

I would agree they have done a good job, and that mma has grown massively because of them (hell, I would still be a pure Aikidoka if it wasnít for Bushido & K1s efforts). Much progress in all fields of life is through competition. However, I think the point is near (or has arrived) where working together or having a regulatory body is preferable to outright war.
A rather tenuous analogy could be the cooperation of the European countries (which officially began in the 1950s I believe). Much political, scientific, and social progress was made through the competition between countries. However, once the major players decided that singing from the same song book was the way forward, their wealth, political strength, culture, general ethics etc improved greatly. Lol thereís gotta be a better example than that, but you catch my drift Iím sure.
