    Precisely. It is not as if an official would have talked with the Fox execs.

    Funny thing is it sounds like the NFL guy was under the impression that the UFC was the same as pro wrestling
    I think he was just trying to be a douche by trying to belittle it.

    Could be, but isn't it all just open access to the media guys with passes?

    I would imagine the belt thing was just a bit of a surprise attack and the players eat it up without considering the meaning behind it.

    Lol.....imagine how it would look if the nfl guys showed up at the nba all-star game and were like, "here lebron, take a picture with the Lombardi trophy!"

    Seems almost desperate.
    I see your point but it is a little bit different with combat sports, I still agree with what your saying.

    My thing is though, why would the NFL not tell them until they got there that is what is stupid to me? Maybe because Nickelodeon was there? (which is owned Zuffa's rival Viacom)

    They've done events this weekend for years and had the event booked for months, the NFL decideds 3 days before that they have a problem with it? Goodell is a fool.
