    They claim that when they bought the company from SEG they instituted all the safety rules (gloves, no groin strikes, etc. etc.), the weight classes, the rounds, the referee and the ability for them to stop a fight, judges and decisions, getting sanctioned in New Jersey, running towards regulation whereas SEG ran away from regulation, getting it on PPV. That's just a few of the many lies UFC has been spreading to all the mainstream media outlets.

    My take on it, as I said before in another thread - MMA die-hards need to quit bitching. Ok they're taking credit for shit they didn't do, so what?! The perception mainstream still needs to be changed, they need to be made aware that this is a legit sport and why. If they have to lie to get the message across, so what it's for the better of the sport. As this thing (MMA) gets bigger, there will be more people looking to take it down. They need to point out, any chance they get, how legit the sport is and why. Whatever the case, the approach they've taken have resulted in all the mainstream media outlets making a big deal about how Zuffa changed the sport for the better and legitimized it. Even if they aren't single-handedly responsible, the word is still getting out there - and no matter how you look at it that's a good thing.

    Holy Christ! This sounds like gay porn or a rugby match (which is kind of like gay porn to New Zealanders)

    Someone actually had problems about a beard in UFC not TOO long ago. I think it might have actually been Arlovski too. Someone help me out, who was that and when was it? I know it happened not too long ago because I remember thinking it was a stupid fucking rule.

    Ok, I gave up after about the 6th page, but had to chuckle about all fighters must be cleanly shaven except for a neat moustache.

    What are we living in the 1920's!?!?

    Does that mean Arlovski can't fight in NJ?
