    How? If a good lawyer wins a case by putting the judge and jury in his pocket he's disbarred for life, it doesn't matter how good he was in the courtroom the fact that he stacked the deck in his favour was not only illegal it runs against everything law stands for. Fedor might have been the best heavyweight ever, he fought the best of his era regardless of whatever UFC fans think of him, but at the end of the day appointing the referee and judges who are officiating your bout with the express purpose of being handed a victory is cheating. He deliberately rigged a number of his fights as head of the Russian MMA Union. That's a form of cheating worse than doping or eye poking, because it challenges the very integrity of the sport. You can't be a great athlete and a cheat at the same time.

    Yeah, there is no such thing as a combat sport because 90% of the things people put in that box have nothing to do with combat. Wrestlers do not set out with the express purpose of wounding or hurting each other, nor do judoka or kendo practitioners. The only sports where you set out to destroy your opponent physically are MMA, boxing and, arguably, kyokushin. Yes, the name mixed martial arts sucks, in all my years watching MMA I've never seen a guy use a sword, trample a guy with a horse or gun someone down with an assault rife. All of those are or were martial arts, judo, karate, taekwondo, these are all contact sports invented in the 19th century there is nothing martial about them. You know why it's called MMA? It's partly because promoters didn't want their fighters accessing the legal protections afforded to prizefighters under the Ali act. Oh and by the way, chokes, throws, holds, gouging and even kicks were pretty common in boxing before the revised police gazette rules. MMA athletes are professional prizefighters, the same legal protections and standards apply and promoters should not be allowed to skip over them. The UFC might have grown the sport but they're also holding it back, their horrible treatment of fighters is discouraging, they've used divisive promotional tactics and their just as guilty as boxing organisation when it comes to pointless interim titles and hyping up athletes who don't deliver. All of that has hurt the image of MMA.

    The biggest problem in boxing nowadays is fighters are scared to lose their 0 and as a result duck the best fighters in their division to preserve it. Look at the whole AJ Wilder debacle and the fact Mayweather Pacquiao didn’t happen until both were past their best.
    The UFC doesn’t have that problem because 90% of the best fighters in the world are all under the same roof. There’s one champion (occasionally two) in each division then as a result the best are forced to face the best. In that sense, the UFC has been fantastic for MMA fans by giving us the big fights at the right time.

    Give him a horse to trample with and an assault rifle as well then it's combat according to the OP that needs help for addiction to what ever he is on.
    I don't think i have read anything more insane on here since i joined in 2004

    Generally I agree with what you have said in this post however slowly but surely over the years the UFC is turning into boxing for all the wrong reasons. Multiple belts in a weight class created for no other reason than to sell a ppv to the casuals. Champions not defending and blatantly refusing to fight top contenders such as Conor McGregor. The ufc was also shamlessly trying to gift a roid cheat who hadn't fought for years in Lesnar a title shot against Cormier at the time. Multiple instances of fighters getting title shots coming off LOSSES. Nick Diaz and Holly Holm are examples. Laughably Holly Holm got a shot at 145 belts after losing her last 2 fights. Ridiculous.

    Boxing of course has been a complete farce for decades and decades now and I've noticed the ufc gradually morphing into the boxing mould inch by inch year after year.
