There is no other sport in the world I can think of where "friends" refuse to compete. There's is no boxer on this planet who wouldn't fight his "friend" for a belt. I hate it.

For all the focus on the violence and crudeness of MMA by the anti-MMA establishment, its shit like the above that makes the UFC look more unprofessional than anything else.

Not to mention the legalities of a betting sport having so many competitors ( if they can call themselves that ) being buddies and actually affecting match-up decisions... in a one-to-one sport!

This is not good gentlemen and ladiemen. Its not "sport". It's bullshit. If left unchecked it'll lead to friends giving half-arsed performances which will lead to betting corruption quicker than you can say "we wont knock each other out"

EDIT. Thats 5 WW's, 5 LHW's and 2 HW's that have now made "no fight" rules. All top rankers. How is that right?
