It doesn't make sense for legislation that was written specifically with boxing in mind to apply to MMA. The business models between the two are completely different. I would have no qualms with legislation being written specifically to MMA but people have to remember that if the Ali act applies to MMA then ALL of the Ali act would apply including parts that make no sense in respect the the MMA styles business model.

The UFC makes about 30-40 million a PPV.... 2-4 percent of that goes to the fighters, 15 percent goes to the production team, etc and the rest goes to the Fertitas and Dana
Those are some interesting numbers. For comparison Wrestlemania 24 did 1.06 Million buys at $55.00 each and brought in $31M in Revenue and only $7M in profit (Keep in mind the wrestlers are considered yearly contractors so their pay isn't even included in that).
So at typical buy rate of 500K making 30-40M and the fertitas making 80% profit is absurd.
