    Something to think about anyway. I would think normal types of reconstructive surgery do not have the same kind of potential issues as a fluid/gel filled bag. If it became trendy to have softball sized testicles, I am sure the athletic commission would have every justification to examine the particular issue while ignoring other "plastic" surgeries.

    I think they made the right move here. A moratorium is not a ban, and is generally used to gain time to understand an issue. There is nothing misogynistic about it. They had an incident where a fighter had problem with an implant and had to pull out. They decided to take a closer look at the issue. My guess is that they will adopt a waiver system like other states.

    All regulations are created because one person saw something that they thought required action and took it. Not sure why you want to make a conspiracy out of it.

    ^How long before this poor bastard needs a waiver from his plastic surgeon before he can fight...?

    I have no issue with this. People in the country are lawsuit happy. If something happend and one of those things burst during a fight there is no telling who would be at fault according to the courts. The way I understand it the ban can be gotten around by a waiver and they are working towards making sure they or the org putting on the fight is not liable.

    Women's mma is just getting popular and it hasn't been an issue clearly, things start somewhere. At some point mma in general was probably only legal and sanctioned in a few states... A&d I'm sure rules regarding criteria to fight have changed since try we're implemented. I'm not saying that the commission or who ever is doin it for the right reasons, but I could see how implants pose a potential problem, one that's worth looking into...

    There is nothing clever or political correct about this.

    I could see how a foreign body being punched, kicked, grappled, and other wise violently shifted could result in "safety" related issues... I don't think needing clearance is a horrible thing. It should definitely be based off the safety of the fighter, and not how the "art" of a surgeon might get disrupted... I'm sure whoever fixed rich franklins nose doesn't want to see it wrecked again...
