    It's obvious what is going on. Does Ryan have a chance? Of course he has a chance, it's a fight. But track records, IMO, show that Ryan is well out of his league here. I don't care who wins honestly, but I don't see it going well for Couture.
    Why wouldn't they? I thought they had the power for a way overmatched fight to be stopped before it happens.

    That's the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard of in my life. First of all, Couture isn't that outmatched. Secondly, if he was, he'd get ko'd or submitted and the ref would stop it just like he would anyone else. If they started cancelling fights every time you thought they didn't stand a chance of winning, no one would ever have a chance.

    Uh, perhaps read previous posts? Someone had commented it's a really bad match and I was just pointing out that if it were so bad the commission wouldn't allow it. Then I was simply asking if they had the power. Part of the commision's job is to not allow some new inexperienced fighter to fight someone that is way too far beyond them. Is it not?
