I know people have been saying this for years, but it does seem like the UFC is trying to become a vertical monopoly (or perhaps monopsony). Control everything about the sport from top to bottom with the exception of tiny niche businesses and feeder orgs. This is just another step in that direction.
They are trying to be the NFL. And honestly, I can't blame them. If there was a fighters union I'd actually support it.
